South Korea

The place to be this month: Pyeongchang (Winter Olympics)

The greatest winter sports tournament puts South Korea's eastern city in the spotlight this month

From 9 to 25 February, the world will watch Pyeongchang as it plays host to the Winter Olympics. Located in the northeastern part of South Korea, the ski resort area has built extensive, state-of-the-art facilities in preparation for the big event. So even those who can’t make it to this year’s Winter Games – the first held in Asia since Japan’s Nagano in 1998 – will still have this excellent option for cold-weather sports for years to come. pyeongchang2018.com
