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!

While some countries are currentl excempt from having to apply for K-ETA, some nationalities still have to. The K-ETA Application was a quite recent introduced entry method to Korea. Make sure you fill this out in advance. But ALWAYS make sure to 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.


Don't eat or drink on public transportation

While taking public transportation in Seoul you won't see anyone drinking or eating - hence why subway stations are also always quite clean. Some bus drivers will also not let you on the bus if you have an open drink in your hand, so make sure you finish it before or just put it in your bag.
