Korea
« on: November 05, 2015, 12:54:21 pm »
I have been to Korea for a few times and half of the times, I was in Seoul.
If my trip was long, I would normally travel to other parts of Korea, e.g. Busan, Jeju, Gwangju etc.

If you plan to shop in Seoul, besides Myeongdong, I would recommend the Ewha Woman University area for cheaper clothes and shoes etc. You can alight at Ewha Woman University station, Green Line #2.
Sinchon is another area for food, drinks, KTV etc. Sinchon area has a lot of universities and hence, if you like to immerse yourself in a young crowd, Sinchon is another place to go besides Ewha and HongDae.

Koreans can be pretty loud sometimes. And maybe a bit rude sometimes. If they are trying get out of a crowded train, they will just push you. They don't bother to say sorry or excuse me because they have the mentality that "you can understand me why I am doing that". However, things are becoming better now. They are a bit more polite as compared to 10 years ago.

Japanese are really the polite and soft spoken type, which generally makes you feel good! Their transportation is really top notch!

As for Taiwan, the people are generally ok.

I think it really depends on where you want to go. Are you planning to go to cities or rural areas? If you are Chinese, then I guess, language will not be a problem for you when you travel to rural areas in Taiwan.
But the farther you are traveling away from the cities, language will become a problem because almost everything will be in the country's native language, e.g. food menus, transportation etc.

If you plan to go Japan, I recommend to install the Tabimori translation app. It is a very useful app to use!
If you plan to go Korea, I recommend to install the Korean English translator app.
