Planning to have a trip from 28th December to 12th January.
Counting down to New Year on the peak of Mt Hallasan at Jeju Island. Not much shopping will be done throughout the trip, but we will try lots of food. So only join us if you're not a picky eater, and will eat almost anything! One of us can converse in Korean too!
Heads up ! An International Driving Permit (IDP) is required to rent a car in South Korea.
I reserved a car but don’t have this document. So, I can’t pick it up :-(
If you have this document and want to explore outside Seoul, I’d be happy to pay for the car and you drive.
The reservation is from now (Sat, June 9th) until Tue, June 12th in the evening).
Please reply ASAP via private message if you are interested. Otherwise I will pay the 120€ cancellation fee.

I'm planning on booking with Kooridor tours for a full day visit to the DMZ/JSA in mid-July. Does anyone know if the JSA is open for tours right now. The Kooridor web site says the Bridge of No return is not accessible, but still advertises Freedom House ect at the JSA. Any recent updates would be appreciated.
I'm looking for information on hot springs in South Korea.
Could you recommend any please? Preferably, not the spa or water amusement park types. Ideally, either wild natural ones or somewhere atmospheric.
That would be hugely appreciated.
Hi - have a day spare and would like to stay somewhere near the dmz area - what is the nearest town/city?
Also, if I arrive the day before, can I book on a tour locally (not one to/from Seoul)?
I live in Quebec, speaking french, some english.First time traveling alone so i told my self why not looking if a someone else ( a women) want to visit Seoul and like me is alone. I'm a little nervous si it will be cool to meet a new friend ( and i'm married:D)
Hi! I'm Irene,
I'm looking for someone to travel to Seoul in September (13 to 26th), I've already travelled but never alone, I think the more the better.
So, let me introduce myself a little bit... Spanish, 23yo, animal lover wanting to meet the world.
I've always loved asian culture, and lately I fell for Kpop and Kdramas, one of the main reasons of the destination.
If you're interested, let me know!
I have a chance to stop in South Korea for 5 days for a whirl wind trip. As much as I would like to do it slow, that's all the time I could squeeze out.
I love culture and history. Would love to hear suggestions on what to see, where to stay and transport options during the period.
I will be landing on the 20th May (morning) and leaving 25th May (morning). If anybody is around during the time and would like to join, that would be great.
Two days ago I flew from Bangkok to Hanoi with VietJet Air. When I checked in I was asked to show an onward ticket from Hanoi. This was not a problem, as I had a such a ticket, to Seoul in a few days.
My question is this: Will I need an onward ticket from South Korea as well, when flying from Hanoi to Seoul? I asked the VietJet Air office at the airport in Hanoi, but they could actually not give me a clear answer.
So, will either VietJet Air or the South Korean border control request…
We will have two weeks in Korea in June. We want to hit all the major highlights. The priorities are culture/history, scenic nature spots (the likes of Seoraksan), regional food (especially seafood!), natural hot springs, and a bit of beach routine towards the end. Definitely want to see Jeju.
We are sitting on the fence whether to rent a car or trust our fates to public transportation. What do you think would be the best option?
We would be hugely grateful for your input.
