Korea Travel Guide: 5 Do’s And Don’ts

Travel141 | Things Not To Do In Korea | Korea Travel Guide

Whether it’s the Korean dramas or their irresistibly charming girl and boy groups that got you obsessed with their culture, Korea is taking over as one of the must-visit places in the world. Is a trip to Korea in your travel plans this year? While you may know some of their quirks courtesy of what you see online, there are still some things you need to remember when travelling in Korea. Let this short Korea travel guide help you ensure a pleasant and peaceful vacation!

Go easy on the skin-baring clothes during your Korea travel adventure

Travel141 | Things Not To Do In Korea | Korea Travel Guide

Are sleeveless and backless tops your favourite clothing pieces? These styles are typically frowned upon by the elderly Korean women. As such, try to fill your luggage with loose and breezy shirts instead. Plus, they’re perfect for whatever Korea travel adventure you embark on. While baring your shoulder and back is not ideal, shorts and skirts are generally accepted.

Use both hands when accepting or presenting things

Travel141 | Things Not To Do In Korea | Korea Travel Guide | Use Both Hands

Whether you’re handing payment for your meal or accepting a bowl of food from someone, use both hands. This is because using one hand is considered to be rude.

Remember that age is important for Koreans

Travel141 | Things Not To Do In Korea | Korea Travel Guide | Let the eldest eat first

In other cultures, asking about someone’s age is blasphemy. But in Korea, it’s perfectly normal. Why? It’s because Korea values respect for elders. When eating, for example, you must wait for the eldest person in the table to eat first before everyone else can eat. Moreover, if an elderly person offers you a drink, you mustn’t refuse.

During your Korea travel escapade, don’t pour your own drinks 

Travel141 | Things Not To Do In Korea | Korea Travel Guide | Don't pour your own drinks

In Korea, it’s impolite to pour your own drinks. So, if you’re going out for a round or two with your newfound Korean friends, let them pour your glass and then do the same for them. And remember, when you’re pouring for someone, do so with both hands.

Mind where you seat on public transportation

Travel141 | Things Not To Do In Korea | Korea Travel Guide | Mind where you seat on public transportation

Just because a seat is vacant doesn’t mean it’s for you. Relative to how important and valued the elderly are in Korea, there are seats on buses or trains that are reserved for the elderly and disabled. Make sure the seat you’re about to take is not for the elderly and the disabled.

Jindo Miracle Sea Road Festival

The Jindo miracle sea road festival is kind of similar to the miracle of Moses parting the sea except that this festival’s story occurs with a woman. It came from a mythical story where Jindo island was attacked by vicious tigers and only one woman didn’t escape so she prayed to the deity to part the sea so she can go to the neighbouring island, and it happened. Now, every year South Koreans celebrate in the morning at 6 am during low tide and they light a torch and march towards the sea.

 

Boryeong Mud Festival

July 12-21, 2019

Of course! You have to do the important things like booking flights and hotel rooms of which country you will be heading to.

2. Research then plan

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

When choosing places to visit in Asia, doing research is a must especially when planning an itinerary.  You can group attractions that are near to your hotel on one day and the places that will take you an hour or more from your hotel on another day. You also have to research on which mode of transportations is convenient and safe.

 

3. Familiarize yourself with the surroundings and language

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Travellers nowadays are very lucky because mobile phones make it easy to do virtually anything. From finding hotel locations to translating languages, you can do it on your phone. But of course, before travelling for 2019, it’s wise to read up on local culture and area to know which place to tick off your list first. It’s also a must that you know a few basic words and phrases to make it easier to communicate with the locals.

 

4. Exchange currency in advance

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Next tip on our list of travel tips is to make sure you exchange currency in advance. Even if you think those credit cards can save you from all your travel expenses including food, entrance fees, and shopping, it’s still important to stack some cash in your wallet.

 

5. Pack clothes that are suitable for your destination

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

You don’t wear jackets in tropical countries like Thailand or Philippines, don’t ya? Or, wear tank tops to South Korea or Japan on a winter season? You’ll look weird not only to the locals but to other travellers too. Make sure to know the weather when you’re visiting so you know which kind of clothes to pack. Then again, try to pack light if you plan to go on several shopping sprees.

 

6. Bring a backpack or a tiny purse

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Adventure travellers and solo backpackers can relate to this! You don’t need to bring your huge, luxurious Gucci bag if you want to enjoy hiking or walking. Make sure you pack a bag or backpack that can store all your basic essentials when you’re out and about. Doing this will spare you from the hassle of lugging around a big bag especially if you plan to take the bus or train.

 

7. Make some local friends

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

You know what’s the best thing about travelling to different places? You can make many friends! This is why it’s good to practice your English and learn basic greetings. When you make local friends, you’ll surely have fresh news on the latest trends that are happening in their country so you could make more interesting travel plans and ideas the next time you visit them.

 

8. Have fun and enjoy your travel!

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Never forget that the reason you travel is to have fun and enjoy every single moment of your vacation. Don’t stick your nose on your travel plans too much or on what time should you be on your next attraction to visit when you have just already arrived at the first place in your list. Now go and make more memories!

 

Bonus: Hire a private car with a driver

For a more convenient travel experience, you can also rent a private car with a driver. Travel 141 International Car Rental Services will be launching soon to help you ride in comfort to your destination.

Things To Do Before Undergoing Plastic Surgery in Korea

Plastic surgery in Korea isn’t that big of a deal with South Korea having the highest rate of plastic surgeries per capita in the world.

If you’re a medical tourist eager to visit a plastic surgery clinic in South Korea, make sure you get these things done first so you can enjoy the rest of your South Korea medical travel adventure with great results.

 

Search for a reputable clinic

Not all South Korea plastic surgery clinics are certified and safe so you must check out only the ones with certification and proven results. You can also read testimonies of renowned personalities and people who have undergone successful surgeries to know if the clinic is safe or not.
