Some tips when traveling to Korea


Download Naver Maps or Kakao Maps

While Google Maps is used in most countries around the world, it won't help you much in Korea. Here we mainly use Naver Maps or Kakao Maps to navigate through the country.


Get a T-Money Card

In order to use public transportation such as busses and subways, your best friend will be the T-Money card that you can top up at all subway stations or at Convenience stores. Just keep in mind that you can only top it up with cash!


Apply for K-ETA!

A newly introduced entry method is the K-ETA Application. Make sure you fill this out in advance. However, do make sure to always check your countries embassy for all entry requirements in advance!


Taxis - red means available, green means taken

As confusing as this might be, if you are trying to flag down a taxi, keep an eye out for the one with a red sign instead of the green. The red ones are usually the ones that are available for transportation and the green ones are full or booked already.


Wear masks indoors

In Korea, it is still a requirement to wear masks indoors. However, you do not need to wear a mask outdoors.
