Gyeongju.

by euzkadi

I want to visit this Gyeongju, i know that there are trains and buses to this city from Seoul. I just have two days to do that. Do you thing it´s possible to do it in such a few time?

Re: Gyeongju.

by DSwede

Two days is plenty of time. Gyeongju can be seen in a full day if you hit the ground with your feet running. There are bicycles for rent just outside both the train and bus stations. Alternatively, bus routes no 10 & 11 do circular routes stopping at most tourist destinations.

If you are traveling in the morning of the first day, you can see the majority of Gyeongju in the same day. Then you can see what you missed on the morning of the second day before you leave.

Travel Tips for Seoul

The big busy city

by TinKan

Seoul, the capital of South Korea, is set on the Han River that runs across the central part of the Korean Peninsula. A modern, bustling city, Seoul still retains many glimpses of its ancient past in the form of royal palaces, museums, pagodas and traces of the ancient walls.

Served by Incheon International Airport, 62 kilometers from the city, and Gimpo Domestic Airport, just 25 kilometers away, Seoul is encircled by mountains with Namsan (South Mountain) in the centre. The city is dotted with relaxing parks, including the nation's largest park complex, Seoul Grand Park, which contains Seoul Zoo, Seoul Land Amusement Park and the botanical garden. Seoul Tower, which soars above the densely clustered pine trees on the summit of Namsan, is located in Namsan Park and houses the Aquarium and Ocean Life Museum.

Seoul's museums reflect Korean culture, both traditional and modern, and many of them are in the central district of Jung-gu. Namdaemun (South Gate) market is a bustling market place with rows of stalls that sell virtually everything while Itaewon is a renowned shopping and entertainment area. For more upmarket shopping, Apgujung-dong is the area to find the world's top fashion houses, fine restaurants and entertainment centers.

Learn to drink Soju

by cwest03

Soju is a Korean alcoholic drink that is enjoyed with meals and with friends. I can best describe it as being somewhere between sake and vodka. It's usually served cold and goes great with spicy Korean food.

There is quite a bit of etiquette surrounding this traditional Korean drink. For example when offering a drink to a person older than you it is expected that you hold the bottle with both hands when pouring to show respect. You should never fill you own glass and when having your glass filled you should hold it with the right hand and place the left hand under it.

When drinking with the younger generation of Koreans the rules aren't as strict but it is nice to know some of them so you don't look like a complete heathen.

1) Don't be mad when people...

by Sarah97

1) Don't be mad when people touch you and never say 'I am sorry.' You know if you are living in a crowded city like Seoul, it is hardly impossible to be somewhere without bumping into someone. But in that case, we Koreans usually don't say 'I am sorry.' since it's happening all the time. But I know that foreigners think that Koreans are rude because of that. So, please understand this if you are facing it.

*^ ^*

2) I think you would be better to know some basic Koreans.

Hello! = 'An-nyung-ha-se-yo! or An-nyung.'

Thank you! = 'Gam-sa-hab-ni-da.'

How much? = 'Earl-ma-ye-yoh?'

Where is...? = '.... o-di-ye-yo?'

Subway = 'Jun-Cheol'

See the Korea National Football Team!

by MiddleEarthTraveller

The Korean Red Devils are a great team to watch. They had a great showing at the 2002 World Cup. I was very excited to see them, but I didn't know how to get tickets for games that are usually sold out! I provided a website that lists match schedules, and to get get tickets, you only have to go to any "HANA BANK" and ask for tickets ("Chook-ku pyo?"). They will then show you the map of the stadium and you can choose where you prefer to sit, and price, etc. Easy!
