Metro reveals the best places in London for Korean food and entertainment, South Korea's tourism industry is still going strong amid rising political tensions, discover the best place for "forest bathing", and why are more Koreans taking solo holidays?

"Where to enjoy Korean food and music in London"

"If you're seeking the best Korean culture in London", writes Hoseong, "then the received wisdom is to make a pilgrimage to New Malden". In this post on Metro, you'll discover the best spots around town to get your Korean fix. On The Bad, Busan BBQ, and Seoul Bakery are just a few of the great places you can visit to experience the delicious goodness from the Land of the Morning Calm.


"Can South Korea tourism weather rising political tension?"

Despite the rising tensions between the US, South Korea and North Korea, tourism in the South remains strong-in fact, it could even be growing. "From a global perspective, our passenger bookings to South Korea are going strong, with 10% growth versus last year at this time", said one South Korean tour company. Would political tensions in the region prevent you from visiting South Korea? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below...


"Peace in the woods"

This travel piece by Jung Min-ho reveals the natural beauty of Jangheung's Viv Ecotopia. "In the forest of hundreds of 40-year-old cypress trees, you can lie on one of the hammocks, benches or inside the huts ― and relax", writes Jung. The forest is also the best place in the country for "forest bathing". This is a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities: relaxing in nature, surrounded by trees.


"To get away from just being somebody's husband or wife, more S. Koreans traveling alone"

More South Koreans are choosing to travel alone, according to Hankyoreh. A 2016 report by Korea Tourism Organization revealed that 14.4% of surveyed adults travelled, or had plans to travel, alone. "The current 'YOLO' [an acronym meaning 'you only live once'] trend also appears to have played a part", said Lee Seung-shin, a Konkuk University professor.
