Hello

I'm traveling to South Korea for an extended stay. I am interested in hearing from any one who traveled there, experienced some mishap such as stolen luggage, sickness etc and then collected on their insurance.

How difficult was this experience and who was the provider?

Thanks

Hi,

I'm planning on taking the Camellia Line ferry from Fukuoka in Japan to Busan in South Korea in early October and the Weidong ferry from Incheon in South Korea to Qingdao in China in early November. Ideally, I'd like to book economy class tickets by phone (or online if I figure out how to do it) a few days before I leave.

  1. How much in advance would you recommend I make a booking?
  2. Any thoughts on what the best way to book either of these two is?

(Yes, I might end up having to book the…

Hi, going to South Korea soon and was wondering if it would be worth us getting a Korean rail pass and if so which one!

Our route is ferry into busan, --> Gyeongju --> seoraksan (national park) --> seoul but we may do a couple of day trips from Seoul for example to the dmz, or maybe even Nani island.

Thanks in advance!

Hey guys,
We'll be heading over to South Korea in a few weeks, and wondered if anyone has any experience with working in hostels for a bed/meals, through workaway or just finding volunteer opportunities when you arrived.
Will I need a working holiday visa even if it's just short term/no pay? I know of people who have been and helped out for a bed etc on a tourist visa exemption, but as we're hoping to go back to Korea as English teachers next year I don't want to risk getting in trouble with…
