I am due to arrive in Seoul this Sunday 7 June. Understand that there are 2 death and 25 confirmed cases now.
How's the situation there? Is it safe to go around Seoul in the current situation?
Appreciate your advice and thank you in advance.
I am planning on flying into Incheon on the Monday of Chuseok, 28th Sept. My experience of different countries is that some shut down for national holidays whereas in others it is often hard to see any difference.
I will have a booked hotel, should I expect any problems re transport, etc?
Presumably by Tuesday everything is back to normal.
We're visiting Korea soon with our two daughters 10 and 12 years old. They're both interested in history and other countries, and we would like to visit the DMZ/ Panmunjeon or possibly other areas related to the North/South conflict. However, it seems that most DMZ-tours do not accept children younger than 12. Does anyone know if this is strictly applied or if there are tours that do accept 10-year olds?
I will be flying into Incheon Airport with my bike. I am looking at hotels near to the airport for my first night, where I will also re-assemble my bike. I then want to pedal off the island.
Looking at the map there are 2 roads off the island, but they look like highways. My question is will I be able to cycle off the island.
If not, are there any other options like using the train of ferry?
Thanks in advance.
I am travelling to South Korea (Seoul area and Jeju) in August and would love to try some archery with a lesson or two.
Does anyone have any recommendation on where to do this, and whether I will need to book something up in advance?
I am going to a conference in Korea for a week and I decided to stay for 3 more days (the longest I can stay unfortunately).
I was thinking about spending those 3 days in Seoul. Checking out the following sights:
The war memorial
Bukhansan National Park
Is it too much/too little for 3 days? I have never been to Asia before. Any sights that are more recommendable
We booked a double room with en-suite through hotels.com. When we arrived the owner told us the guesthouse was full. We showed her the reservation on our phone and the fact that it had been fully paid but she didn't care. She said it wasn't her problem and that it was between us and hotels.com. She then went into her office saying she was going to cancel the reservation and give us a refund. She then returned to say she couldn't and we would have to get the money back though hotels.com, who have…

6/9 DMZ day trip

Can anyone recommend a lower price hotel or hostel that is within 30 minutes (by train or bus) of the Incheon airport? Under KRW 40,000 would be great!
I can find a number of hotels in Incheon city center, but they are 1 hour away from the airport.
