    Japan, and China are the most people think of Asia when they'd travel, but South Korea is one of the most exciting, and amazing nation in Asia if not in the world.

    The Korean metro looks a lot like Taiwan’s. Can the purple card be used at convenience stores like 7-11 and circle K?

    did recently (Oct. 2019) stay just literally across the street at the Hill House Hotel near the Namdaemun market area and the Myeongdong Area and we did hardly go over 8000 per person on meals, wanted to be close to the Namsan park Saw breakfast offers around the 4000 and this was surprisingly very little compared to what was on the plate. However brekky was thrown in within our hotel cost and we were so well looked after that we will go there again. Another market Gwangjang, was sensational cheap for the selection on food on offer. Avoid anything with beef as that is a bit hard to get for a reasonable price. Seafood was in general really cheap everywhere. Next stop for us is Busan.

    Hi, I have been living in South Korea for 29 years. as a Korean, It's my pleasure that you guys love my country. but I wanna say that every country has both good people and bad people. There are so many bad people around me even. though good people also. You can encounter a rude person anywhere. Don't expect anything, Don't be disappointed by anything. It's a truth and a real life.

    the only negative thing i encountered in seoul was : twice i encountered a taxi driver asking for higher fare rate just because we were from US. Also encountered cab driver declined taking us because we were not white! that we are just asians!!! Japan so far has the best taxi drivers even give you the exact change, no extra charges etc.. although quite expensive. Korea in general is cheaper. I also saw a lot of people spitting everywhere lol

    South Korea is a dirty savage place. The entire world hates South Korea for it's torture and killing of millions of dogs. You can hear the screams of dogs from hotels. Don't worry South Korea the world will send in the military to rescue the dogs and you will pay for your crimes.

    Glad to see this video. You put a lot of useful and correct tips for tourists, from the perspective of a local person. I loved that you introduced a chargeable card in metro :) Many Koreans use it in their daily lives. Also, normally credit/debit cards in Korea have a function for transportation, so people can attach their credit cards to the machine and the fare is paid directly from their bank accounts. No need to top-up!
    Also, I think it is 'experiencing local people's nightlife' that maximizes happiness in travelling Korea.
    5~6 GBP foods are great to make you full, but I strongly recommend tourists to try Korean barbecue for dinner, no matter pork(samgyeopsal) or beef. Korean local alcohol 'soju' will be a good pair of it. Visit a barbecue restaurant in group(at least 2 ppl) and pour soju in each other's glass. You can try some games that people in 20s or 30s play while drinking. And then you can go to a bar for the 'second round''. Obviously it will cost more than what the video mentioned, but will give you a wonderful memory.
    Many Thx for making this video! From S.Korea

    Do they have any shady people (criminals/gangs etc) in South Korea. The city you showed us looks safe, clean and organised. The people are busy with legitimate activity and don´t look criminally inclined.

    한국인들은 항상 그렇듯이 비굴한 외국인 사대주의 노예근성 망상에 빠져서 외국인들을 환영한다고 극성을 떨지만 현실은 한국에 사는 외국인들의 90%는 매일매일 한국을 조롱하고 비하하는게 일상이고 여기 댓글에도 일방적으로 비하하는게 현실인데 이놈의 똥노예민족은 도대체가 반만년을 호구처럼 시달리고 살고 외국인들이 이나라를 먹다 버리는 창 녀국가 쯤으로 생각해도 그저 외국인이라면 마치 노예처럼 자동적으로 굽신거리고 간이고 쓸개고 다 빼주는 외국인 사대주의 노예민족성이 이지구상에서 가장 심한 비참한 노예민족이다.

      너 말이 맞네. 우리식으로 우리민족끼리 사대주의 매국을 버려야겠네. 조선 후기에 외세에의존하다 망한것과같은 력사를 되풀이말고 우리민족끼리 통일해서 잘살자잉.
