"Most people in Seoul do not speak English" Seoul Local Custom Tip by victorwkf

Seoul Local Customs: 217 reviews and 562 photos

Most people in Seoul, including the taxi drivers do not know English. Therefore it is essential to point to them the location you want to go on a map. If you want to bargain, write down the amount on a piece of paper or use a calculator. For ordering food, just point to the item on the menu (hopefully there is some English or photos to assist you).

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
