Visiting South Korea? Read this...

Posted on 29 December 2017

 Korea is a beautiful land where various cultures merge together. Korea is not only famous for its sights and beautiful cities, here you will come across many traditional shows that are worth enjoying. The biggest attraction of the country is its delicious food and KPOP lovers.

If you are planning to visit Korea  as your next destination, remember that there are many things you have to consider to have the best experience. Here are a few tips to help you out with your journey.  


Days you require to travel Korea

The first thing you need to consider is how many days you need to spend in Korea to assure that you can enjoy all the beautiful sceneries and tourist hot spot. If you are here for an adventure, 2 weeks would suffice. On the other hand, if you only have a short time to spare and  want to experience Korea, at least stay for five days to cover Seoul / Jeju Island / Nami Island / Busan.  


The official language of the country is Korean and you should know that most of the vendors do not know how to speak English. It would be advised that you keep a translation application with you, so you can easily communicate with the locals. One of the best app Packist recommends is Google Translate where you can also take a picture, highlight the image which needs wording and it will translate the text for you. Easy!

Pay attention to expenses

Do not forget to pay attention to your expenses. Apart from the traveling cost, you will have to include many other expenses like tickets, food, gifts, and transportation. You have to get an estimation that how much you will spend in Korea so that you can take some extra money with you to meet your emergency requirements.

Public vs Personal transportation

A common issue that most of the people have to deal with is the transportation. You have to know the routes and timing of all the trains and public buses so that you will not have to deal with the private transports. Remember that they are expensive and it might disturb your budget. Manage your time according to the transportation so you will reach all the places on time.

Top shopping places

You can never leave Korea without buying gifts for your loved ones. Here we have the list of top shopping places that you should visit.

  • Myeongdong: There are lots of cosmetics stores and shopping place for fashionistas.
  • Dongdaemun: Here you will get affordable clothing. It is like a street market style like Bangkok.
  • Namdaemun: For wholesale shopping. Items are not as trendy here though.
  • Garosugil: There are several trendy streets and cafes with high end designer shops.
