When you travel to a country, whether for studying or vacation, it’s good if you can find out what mobile applications (apps) the locals use. These apps will help make life a little smoother for you when you are there. These are my most frequently used apps that I had in my phone while I was living in Korea.
Visiting Seoul and have a few days to spare? Here are some places you may want to consider visiting~ All places can be visited within a day, making it perfect for a day trip!
Daejeon 대전 is Korea’s 5th largest metropolitan city located near Seoul. This city is home for one of Korea’s top university, KAIST. There isn’t much to do in Daejeon for more than a day so a day trip from Seoul would be enough to see this city 🙂
So this is a very overdue post that I was supposed to finish last fall.. after sitting in my drafts for almost 5 months, I finally finished writing it!
After exploring Cheongyang and Pyeongchang using the FREE Explore Rural Korea bus, I joined the Asan Oeam Folk Village tour on the third day of my day-trip frenzy. Go to the Cheongyang post if you would like to know how to utilize the free shuttle service that will take you to Asan.
If you are taking an international flight from Incheon Airport with either Asiana Airlines, Korean Airlines, China Southern Airlines, T’way Air or Jeju Air, you are eligible to check-in the City Terminal in Seoul! Here’s how you can do it and some things that you need to take note of.
One of the things that you should know about Korea if you are planning to visit or move there is that conventional map applications like Google Maps and Apple Maps do not work in Korea. Or rather, they do work but inaccurately. One of the few applications that you can use to navigate Korea is Naver Maps – in fact they only work in Korea and nowhere else in the world.
One of the things I really wanted to do while I was in Korea was to go strawberry picking. I love strawberries and strawberries in Korea is definitely one of the things you need to try if you are in town during winter and spring. Their strawberries are huge, so sweet and not too expensive – $5 – $8 per box in supermarkets.
Hey guys, I’m back. Haven’t been posting for a while for several reasons (final exams, paper submissions, trips on the weekends, several farewells) but I’m back~
I’ve been wanting to try snow sports and I finally had the chance to go with Wow Korea Supporters a few weekends ago! We went to Pyeongchang, the place where the 2018 Winter Olympics will be held, and skied at Alpensia Resort (well.. actually I snowboarded, not ski).
