Where will I be teaching?

South Korea Seoul city skyline

Seoul

Seoul, the capital of South Korea, is an incredibly dynamic city where traditional Korean culture meets technology-forward infrastructure. Jump on the high-tech subway to visit ancient Buddhist temples and palaces. Plus, if you're a music fan, Seoul is the heart of K-Pop, so you will be dancing your way through the streets.

South Korea Incheon city skyline

Incheon

Incheon, close to Seoul, is famous for its beach-lined islands and beautiful city skylines. Incheon is a super-modern city, which is bustling with life. Spend your spare time taking boat tours to the local islands, or use the huge transportation hub in the centre of Incheon to take you into the mountains. Let the exploring begin!

South Korea Deagu landscape

Daegu

Daegu, is one of the largest cities in South Korea and is rich with ancient culture and scenic attractions. Early riser? We would recommend getting up at the crack of dawn and hiking up one of the mountain trails to get the most spectacular panoramic views of the sunrising over the city.

South Korea Deajoean city skyline

Daejeon

Less than an hour from the capital Seoul, Daejeon, is a high-technology, forward-thinking city that has earned its name as "Asia's Silicon Valley". Must-see attractions include the National Science Museum and climbing the 93-metre Habit Tower, situated in Expo Park, where you'll get views across the entire city.

South Korea Busan seaside

Busan

Busan is famous for its mix of beaches, mountains, and temples - a real mix of everything. Spend the morning visiting Beomeosa Temple, a Buddhist Shrine founded in 678AD before heading over to Haeundae Beach to take part in one of their traditional tug-of-war games. Then, if you've still got energy left, head over to Gwangalli Beach for the popular nightlife, where you can find a bar with views of the modern Diamond Bridge.
