South Korea

An array of mighty empires and successive dynasties have ruled over the area now known as South Korea, preserving a land of temples, shrines and ancient traditions. Seoul was the capital of the Joseon dynasty from 1392 to 1910 and the ancient city’s royal palaces and sacred sites are better preserved than anything of their type in China, with 15th century Changdeokgung sheltering a particularly beautiful secret garden.
