Gyeonggi is the most populous province in South Korea, with a combined population of 25.6 million people (approximately half of the national total) across three administrative zones covering a total area of 11,730km². It is a landlocked region whose name literally means ‘surrounding the capital’, describing its torus-like encapsulation of Seoul, the Korean capital. Its capital is Suwon, one of 28 cities across the province, and its official symbols are the dove, the gingko, and the forsythia. As with much of the country, Gyeonggi is primarily mountains, with tall jagged mountain ranges and deep river valleys.
