  1330 - Korea's visitor hotline
by Vita500

Favorite thing: 1330
... this number is definitely worth remembering.

It's the number of the Korean Tourist Information Center, which offers assistance to everybody in four languages: Korean, English, Japanese and Chinese.

If you encounter any kind of problems during your trip through Korea, need help with ordering your food in a local Korean restaurant, want to bargain with a street vendor... just dial 1330.
The volunteers behind the line are happy to practice their language skills and surely try their best to help you out.

Personally, I probably wouldn't call it that often but I did hear of people who dialed the number about 10 times a day just to get their burgers at McDonald's right, buy some drink along the street or ask for a plastic bag... well, seems to work though. ;-)

Hence, 1330, the number to remember.

What to dial?
Though the picture says otherwise, simply dial 1330... no regional code in front, nothing else needed.
