International Health Insurance News: South Korea 'boasts diversity'

Expatriate medical insurance customers who fancy a holiday in South Korea should know that the key word is "diversity", according to the Korea Tourism Organization.

Ramy Salameh, PR manager at the body, pointed out that the country features ten World Cultural Heritage sites, which lie alongside the "dynamic and exciting" metropolis of Seoul.

"The city's legacy winds through labyrinthine alleyways before opening out to skyscrapers at the next turn. Iconic city landmarks include Gyeongbokgung Palace, the official Royal Palace built in 1395 for the founder of the Joseon dynasty," he noted.

Expat insurance policyholders who would like to try something a bit different could take some time out of their visit to go skiing in one of the country's 13 ski resorts located in the north-east, or go to South Korea's highest point on a semi-tropical island off the south coast, Mr Salameh added.

His comments come after the tourist board published figures showing the annual number of foreign visitors to Korea exceeded eight million for the first time last month.
