South Korea Travel Guide
The coastal plain is mainly used for the cultivation of rice whilst the southwest plain has most of South Korea’s industry and approximately half the population. The northern environment is alpine with the extensive beech, fir and pine forest home to what native wildlife remains. The south coast is more tropical and the vegetation is particularly lush. South Korea also has over 3000 islands the larger of which are populated. The biggest, Cheju is classed as a province and is the locality for the country’s highest peak Hallasan at 6,398ft. South Korea has four distinct seasons with the wet monsoons during summer and fairly cold winters.
