    I have a friend who taught English in Korea and she absolutely loves this Country, and, because of her (and now your blog post), it is somewhere I would definitely consider visiting! This is a fantastic guide, so helpful, especially as I know nothing about this Country so wouldn’t know how to get around, what to do about wi-fi etc so this is perfect – pinned for later! Interesting about the bins so I hope people do take their rubbish away with them to keep Korea clean 😀 #feetdotravel

    I haven’t been to Korea yet. You’ve made it look a lot of fun and easy to navigate. I’ll pin this for when I venture there.

    Wow, you just took me back to S.Korea where I lived for a few years. I can smell the food from here which I miss. lol. You covered some great tips and my favorite is to take a hike because it is amazing! On your hike make sure to get your photo next to the monument when you reach the peak! Thanks for sharing 🙂 #feetdotravel

    From the looks of this post, we are going to love Korea! Coffee at all hours, great food, and people fighting to pay our bill? We can live with that. 😉 Seriously, it looks awesome. Thanks for all of the great tips!

    24- hour coffee sounds awesome, but I wonder what the 24-hour tea scene is like! We only drink tea, did you notice tea at all of those little cafes? Korea seems amazing, I just love Korean BBQ! Awesome post 🙂

    Great tips! They are stronger than you think, will push you out of the way, jump ahead in the line you are in and beat you to the top of the mountain. Hahaha! Did not expect this! Strange that there aren’t enough rubbish bins. Loved this post. Hope to visit Korea some day! Gamsahamnida!

    Practical and sensible tips to make the most out of ones’ Korea visit. I particularly fancy the one about using local transport. We try to do this at least partially in most places we travel to as this gets us close to the locals and their way of life.

      I agree and it’s pretty easy to get around even if you don’t speak the language! As you say, it’s a great way to have a local experience!

    Both Korea and Japan have always been on the top my bucket list but especially Korea, as for me, it’s a very unknown country and that is what attracts me the most about it. I had no idea that Koreans liked coffee. I thought it was a ”tea” country, so all its neighboring countries are. Do you know what the reason behind this? Anyways, thanks for sharing such a detailed post. Will take into account a few of your tips before panning my trip to Kore. Cheers

      Coffee is a massive part of the culture in Korea and as it’s also a very social one, coffee shops and restaurants become a natural place for people to come together. I have never seen so many coffee shops in one place!
