A tasty experience

Small country, plenty of people. Vehicles of all kind streaming and ponding in large urban areas, while quiet countryside locations offer pleasant views especially in wintertime when the landscape is free from haze. South Korea is mostly rippled by mountains and roads wind through infinite valleys. Cities are generally a mix of residential, commercial and industrial establishments, at times disorienting visitors from non-Asian countries. Best way to perceive Korea’s life is to rely on locals, who will be happy and proud to host foreigners with an intense sense of hospitality.
Food variety is always a surprising experience, with a large selection of spicy hot dishes. Typical eating tools are steel chopsticks and spoon. Main courses are always accompanied by countless side-dishes, where “kimchi” (marinated vegetables) is king and a must.

Need tires?

These bikes carry everything....

Seoul city traffic

Despite a well organized subway network, still Traffic jams in Seoul and surroundings are constantly common. Only at night there is a slight reduction in number of vehicles.
Motorcycles are primarily used to haul and deliver goods of any kind, being their bulk amazing at times.

    Have to say that you have a good eye for a camera. Lived here for 14 years and while I have good pictures, yours are better and appreciated.

    If you have guts to challenge, visit cinema located area, for vendors, or you can order in Beer bars along the street, they will serve with red pepper power to get more good taste. And BUN DAE KI is korean name for this pupa.

    the electromagnetic card is called T-Money. You deposit a certain amount in the card and every time you take public transportation(Bus,subway, and few taxis) the card automatically pays the fare. The fares are much more cheaper this way

    Great page (and I'm not done yet!)! Your Nak ji tip made me laugh. I thought you put sesame oil on them so they don't stick to you, no? Cheers from T.O!
