Hi, I'm trying to rent a car for coming October for my South Korea trip, but found out that no car rental agency provides insurance for stealing / theft.
it means that if someone will steal my car, i'll have to pay the full value of the car.
Does anyone know if there is a rental car agency that can provide this insurance? and why can't i insure the car?
I've traveled all over, and always made sure my car is fully insured for any case. Never heard about a car rental with no theft insurance.
Me and my brother will have a 15 hours layover at ICN airport, our plane will land around 6pm. December 26 is a Monday after Christmas and it will be very very cold when I check AccuWeather especially during the evening. My question is 1st: Is it worth leaving the airport in such a cold weather? 2nd: Will there be any stores or place for shopping or sight-seeing? 3rd: Will there be transportation to Seoul during that time for me to go there and back to the airport? I don't think I have…
I'll be in Seoul for a few days in late September talking with people about pedestrian issues for my tv series. A friend has suggested I travel to Suwon to look at a neighborhood that experimented with being car-free in 2013. http://www.citylab.com/commute/2015/10/the-long-term-impact-of-a-month-without-cars/412408/
1) What is the best way to get from Seoul to Suwon? (I'm staying near the Seoul train station.)
2) What is there to see in Suwon besides this neighborhood (Haenggung-dong)?
I'm going back to South Korea in March/April 2017. I'll be spending time in Busan and Seoul but have about a week in between. I visited Jeju and Gyeongju in 2014 and I'm keen to see different destinations on this trip. I was tossing up trying to get out to Ulleung-do, I'd like to go to Haeinsa, and I have been told that south Jeolla province is nice. I like hiking but have a dodgy knee so prefer shorter walks, and I will be using public transport to get around. So where would you go if…
I'm flying from Vladivostok to Seattle via Incheon. The flight from VVO-ICN is on Aeroflot. ICN-SEA is on Asiana. They are NOT partner airlines. I have a carryon and a checked bag. Layover is 5 hours. What's the best way handle the checked bag and transit lane. I have never had a connecting international flight, let aline 2 different airlines and a checked bag. All help is appreciated.

Hello everyone :)
I plan on going to South Korea for about 2 weeks, starting from October 1st. I want to find a good hike to feel and experience some of Korea's nature. I was thinking about 4-6 days, and the good options I've come across so far are:
Jirisan National Park
Songnisan National Park
Jeju Olle Trail
Sleeping in campsites is not a problem, although to my understanding, some of Korea's hikes has small huts to sleep in.
I would love to hike all over the country, but due to limited time, one…
A few questions that hopefully some more seasoned Korea travellers/locals can help out with!
First, I have a North Korean visa in my passport - having never been to the South before, should I expect some questioning at the airport (or, worse, refused entry?!)? Anyone had experience with this?
Secondly, here's the current itinerary - it's very rushed as unfortunately we only have a week to travel but here goes:
Day 1 Seoul (arrive on plane early in the morning)
Day 2 Seoul
Day 3 Seoul
