I'm not sure how long I'll have in Seoul to get a DMZ trip booked, so does anyone have email details to contact the USO to inquire about a trip in advance? The main USO office has given me a postal address but not emai.

Cheers
Sara

Travel Safety

Hi Everybody,

I'm traveling to SK in less than a week, and after yesterday's launch from North Korea I wonder if it's still safe to travel. I'm not the type of person who gets nervous after stuff like this, especially considering that it's not the first time it happens. However, I'm not traveling alone, and would like to check with more experienced travelers / local residents about the situation.

Thank you so much for your advice, and sorry for the probably unnecessary alarmism.

Hi all. Well, the trouble is there's too much good stuff in Korea and I'm struggling to choose which places to cut from my itinerary. In short, I want to see Seoul, Chuncheon, and Seoraksan in the north; Hahoe, Gyeongju, and Busan in the south, and Jeju Island. My interests are pretty equally spread between big cities, small towns, and nature; historical stuff is nice (temples 'n whatnot) but perhaps less important.

I figure I could make a great 3 week itinerary from these places, but I really…

Hi all:

I'm planning a trip to Seoul in May and am interested in lining up accomodations this week. I've been looking through LP and other sources, and am trying to determine where would be the best place to stay in Seoul, based on the fact that we'd like to be centrally located and will not have a car. Based on the maps I'm looking at, it appears that the area around Changdeokgung would probably be best, but I don't have a good feel for where. I see Gye-Dong, Sogyeok-Dong, and Insa-Dong…

We are planning to cycle round Jeju Island this coming May, but found that most of the bicycle rental websites are in Korean. May I know is there any website/ contact that we can contact in English?

I have a 9-hour layover coming up at Incheon, from 8 am to 5. I've never seen Seoul, so I'm interested in making an excursion, but I know it's kind of long journey. Opinions on if it's worth it? I guess I'd be happy enough with just some good Korean food (used to live on Jeju), but.. kind of a shame to no see the city.

Hi Everybody,

I would deeply appreciate if you could provide timetable for buses (nd trains, if you happen to have them) from Gyeongju to Andong. I've tried repeatedly on the internet, but I can't find them.

Thank you so much. I really appreciate it.

Hello

Soon I will go to Korea as an exchange student. I'm going to Korea one month before school starts so I'll have time to travel. I have to first go to Korea for one week but after that I was thinking about travelling to Indonesia before school starts.

But I have one problem, student visa is only single entry, after that you have to apply for a alien card and show that before you leave the country. But since I will only stay one week in Korea before I leave again I won't get the alien card…
