Hi there,
I'm visiting Seoul for just 3 nights (Wed to Sat) and would love to visit some markets (cloths, trinkets, Jewelery) or Antiques Markets/Shops that are open mid week. Any suggestions?

Soju

Hey everyone!

I recently came across this video - http://www.nobofeed.com/man-about-town/its-soju-and-koreans-are-krazy-for-it/

It got me really curious as to what Soju really is. Unfortunately, I don't live in an area that has anywhere I can purchase it, or else I'd buy it. I am planning a trip to South Korea this summer, and would like to know a little more about it, before I indulge in it.

The video mentions that it's 17% alcohol, that seems pretty high, no? I have had sake...is it…

I'll be in Seoul at the beginning of May. since I've been to Seoul several times and I'll also spend all the week there (even if working)I'd like to visit some good place out of Seoul, it can be a daytrip from Seoul or also two days. I'm arriving at ICN Friday in the first afternoon, then I've all the weekend free , I need to come back to Seoul on Sunday evening or no later than Monday morning.
Can you give me some suggestion about where to go?
Thanks a lot
cheers
Marco

Hi Friends,

I will be in Korea from 20 Oct to 3 Nov 2015. The purpose of my trip is mainly to catch the autumn peak colors. It's hard to predict nature with certainty, I know. Peak foliage in 2013 & 2014 was forecasted consistently around 19th Oct in Seorak, the first place where autumn colours peak in Korea. The south is much later.

I have 2 options and would appreciate advices on which is a better option to maximize my chance of seeing peak colors:

Option 1: be in Seoul (21-24th Oct)…

Hello all.

Layover questions seem to be fairly common on this branch so I hope that reading (and hopefully answering!) yet another one isn't too irksome.

I'll be landing at Incheon on the 27th of April at approximately 0530 via Korean Air and departing (to SFO) the same day around 1730. Since that's going to be around the traditional rush hour time, is chopping off about 4 hours total adequate for commuting to and from the airport and clearing customs? I'll probably have a day bag, but…

Hello! We are planning a trip to South Korea and are curious to know the best area in Seoul to stay for a young couple in their mid-twenties.
We plan to stay in a hostel/guesthouse for roughly two weeks in early-mid October.

Hi,
I am going to spend 10 days in Seoul in May, and I was wondering where I could find a rugby store there, as I plan to bring back a local jersey.

Thank you in advance,

Korea rail

Why is Lonely Planet making it so hard to use the Thorn Tree? I just wanted to search through the posts to see if my question had already been answered. But they seemed to have redesigned the website with no Thorn Tree country specific search tool. The big search takes you off to their other parts of the website when you enter some key words. So I'm forced to ask a simple question you've gotten tired of answering:
How do I get to an English language version of the Korean Rail website? When I put…

G'Day,

After watching so many Korean films, I've decided I want to see South Korea. I've traveled most of SE Asia and love experiencing the different cultures. I only decided last week to go to Korea and after doing a bit of research, I found that May is one of the better times to travel there. Too easy, Korea in May, done. I just am having trouble deciding on how long to go for? Considering around 3 weeks, not sure if it's long or not. Any quick help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
