South Korea

South Korea South Korea is often overlooked as a travel destination. I visited for the first time last year and fell in love with the country. Like other big cities in Asia, Seoul is exciting and beautiful, with things to do, see and eat around every corner. Trying all the different foods (like spicy kimchi and octopus) is an adventure in itself. There are plenty of great places to explore throughout the country, especially for college-age people like me. With the exchange rate almost double what it was a year ago, I can't wait to go back. or -- Jennifer Goger, Los AngelesKathy M.Y. Pyon / Los Angeles Times
