Winter Clothes in Seoul??

by psyminicat

Re: Winter Clothes in Seoul??

by DSwede

Your profile does not say where you are from, so its hard to say what special consideration you may need to take.

Seoul in February can be cold, but if you are from a cold country, this is of little consequence. If you are from the tropics, you may freeze. It has the possibility to get to -20C with snow or +20C with sun, but not always. Inside buildings and metro will be warm.

As far as dress code, Korea has a liberal dress code. There is no need to worry about types of outfits that may be considered inappropriate.

The weather in Seoul was really cold! Actually, winter in South Korea is always cold. If anyone wants to have a trip there in winter, it is important to wear enough clothes.

Drinking habits. KONBE!

by crazyguitar

Never serve drink to yourself!
In a Korean meal you have to wait until someone serves you the drink, then you have to serve the other one. As far as I know drinking alcohol, I´m not sure about non-alcoholic drinks.
Once both of you have full glasses you can say: Konbe! (Cheers) and drink.
There is a mixed drink called "bomb", it contains a small glass of Soju inside a bigger glass of beer. It´s extremly dangerous... one shoot! dangerous...
The most popular beer brand is OB Lager, pretty good!

Rally Capital of the World

by machomikemd

South Koreans Are Known as enthusiastic Rallyists and in Seoul, almost everyday of the year there are rallies that have causes as diverser as anti-us beef, presidential resignation, anti-globalisation, anti-north korea, etc. hence the signature rally capital of the world!

mountainbiking --> Umyeonsan

by schwein

Trails on Umyeonsan are best suited to an XC or trailbike. There are chundery trails suitable for a big-bike, but they are pretty short, and are more fun on a mid-travel fully. Most of the trails are smooth singletrake, between the odd small chunky rock feature.

Ridgeline trails will eventually run into the odd empty bunker, which are there for the defence of the base/mountain if North Korea ever attacks again... would be a fun area for paintball.
