In 2014 I spent a year living in Seoul, during which time I trained the Korean Martial Art of Taekkyon. Taekkyon is the original native martial art of Korea, if you are interested in reading more about it, check out my website (which BTW focuses mostly on Chinese martial arts)

Wifi woes

I will be making a round trip with a few mates to Taiwan, Japan then Korea. Is it easy to find free wifi there on the go? It will be a kinda spontaneous trip and we plan on leaving the city to expore with GPS. I don't want to get SIM cards as I mainly communicate through twitter or skype anyway. Would it be safer to rent routers with unlimited wifi we can split. There are so many router rental sites to choose from in each country, anyone has good recommendations in terms of coverage/ price? Or…

Hey, my family is heading to Seoul for a week. Is it easy to find and connect to free internet on the go there? Or should we get individual SIM cards with data plans/ wifi routers? Never used routers before so I am unsure about how effective they are, but i have heard that they are cheaper and have better coverage. If so, anyone has good recommendations for wifi router rental (from Australia)?

In January next year I along with a group of other friends are planning a trip for 14 days in Korea. We'll start of by arriving in Incheon, then going practically straight to Jeju Island for the first four days.

Everyone who's going will be between 19 and 17 years old at the time, and we will all still be on provisional Licenses (is that an Australian thing? I don't know...) so we're not sure if we can hire a car + nobody wants to drive on the other side of the road. So we're planning to take…

My flight should arrive around 9,30pm in Seoul on a Friday night for only 4 nights, its my first time in Seoul and i am traveling alone. I would like to get into the city and go to an easy to find hotel and hopefully have a few drinks that nights when i arrive. I was thinking to stay near Seoul station at K-pop hotel as its easy to find, but now think i better stay in Itaewon for some bars when i arrive. Hamilton hotel looks a good landmark for the first night although a bit pricey. Can anyone…

Trains vs buses

Hello World!
I’m wondering if anyone has some insight into trains vs buses? Want to go from Daejong to Mokpo and was considering taking the train. But if the bus is a lot cheaper I would consider it. I lived in South Korea twenty years ago and the buses were great then but perhaps it’s changed now.

As well, do you need to make train reservations or can you buy a ticket an hour before?

Thank you!

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
