I wasn’t expecting to fall so quickly in love with Busan. I traveled throughout South Korea as much as possible during my time there – I went to the beach in Sokcho, spent a long weekend in Jeju, ate Chinese street food in Incheon – the list goes on. Visiting each of these places was a great new experience, but only Busan had this rich feel of traditional Korean culture mixing easily with modern ways of life. After almost a year in Korea, I felt like I was experiencing it for the first time.
These are some helpful hints for getting started in Seoul, South Korea. If you’ve lived there yourself and have something to add, please leave it in the comments section! Feel free to ask questions here too.
