Korea

Korea, also known as the "Land of the Morning Calm", is located at a strategically important seaway of Northeast Asia at the Eastern end of the Asian continent neighboring with Japan and China. South Korea’s land area is 100,329km2 with a population of 50 million, a relatively high population density. Korea was in total ruins only six decades ago after the Korean War, but achieved "The Miracle of the Han River" by experiencing remarkable economic growth in a very short period of time.

Korea has four distinctive seasons with a continental monsoon climate. In particular, spring, when the AASSFN 2020 is scheduled, is the best season to witness cherry blossoms, forsythia, azaleas, magnolias and lilacs blooming during the peak season between March and May, with mild and pleasant temperatures.

An increasing number of foreign tourists visit Korea every year despite the global economic downturn, attributed to Korea's globally recognized safety and security as well as the abundant tourist attractions of Korea where 5,000 year-long history of traditional culture is well mixed with cutting-edge contemporary culture.

The Korean Peninsula is located in North-East Asia. It is surrounded by the ocean on three sides, making it a unique geographical location. With Seoul as its capital city, the landsite is roughly 1,030 km (612 miles) long and 175 km (105 miles) wide at its narrowest point. Korea's total land area is 100,033 square km, neighboring Japan to the east, China to the west, and sharing a northern border with Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea).

Gyeongju

Gyeongju, located in the southeastern part of the Korean Peninsula, was the capital of the Silla Kingdom (BC 57 - AD 935) for almost a thousand years. The entire city was designated a National Park by the government in honor of the historic temples, ruins, monuments and artifacts that can be found throughout the area. Most prominently, it is home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Seokguram Grotto and Bulguksa Temple, Gyeongju Historic Areas, and the historic village of Yangdong.

These days, Gyeongju is a popular tourist destination for visitors from Korea and abroad who flock to see the famed foliage in the fall or cherry blossoms in the spring. The city is also becoming increasingly popular as a convention city thanks to its combination of old world charm and high-tech facilities.
