Abstract

South Korea occupies a unique position in the strategic map of Asia. The breath-taking
natural beauty of the peninsula, the Confucian heritage of its society and the indomitable
spirit of the Korean people reflected in the great pace of industrialization that took place from
the rubble of the Korean War – all make the country an intriguing place in the mind of an
international traveller. This is a qualitative paper based on social narrative where the authors
have offered an account of South Korea’s political history and society from a tourist’s point
of view. The authors opine that an appreciation of the political, historical and societal
background and insights make tourism a very pleasurable experience.
