First and foremost, buying a plane ticket to Seoul does not fully guarantee someone’s entry. Citizens of several countries are asked to obtain a visa from the South Korean embassy based on their homeland to legally enter. An appropriate visa will be granted, depending on the purpose of entry. Requirements must be submitted and legal procedures must be carried out.
Before departure, travelers must also remember that not all Koreans can speak English fluently. There are rarely times that some of them even fear being spoken to in that foreign language; although taxis have free interpreters; and signs have translations. So tourists must take the time to learn basic phrases. Using simple greetings like “annyeong haseyo” (hello) and “kamsahamnida” (thank you) is enough. For many locals, hearing foreigners speak their local language is enough to make them feel valued. So really, learning the language earns travelers plus points!
Another thing, people also have to be updated with the weather conditions in South Korea before traveling. Spring falls between these months: March or April to May or June. Summer from June or July to August. Autumn is from August or September to November or December. Winter follows from November / December to February / March.
It’s important to know the season because it will tell people what clothes to bring. Winter is really cold, especially for people who live in tropical and subtropical countries. It is best to bring more thick clothes, coats, jackets, earmuffs, and scarves when visiting during those times. South Korean hotels usually have heaters installed in their rooms so they are guaranteed comfortable every night.
In the case of clothing, it is best to maintain it. Uncovering clothes is also not permitted to be worn at the temple because this will only refuse people’s entrance to this holy destination. Although many Koreans are very fond of fashion, they will not appreciate clothes that are very exposed on the streets. It’s best to look casual all the time; but keeping the sophisticated vibrations clear.
This summarizes the things that must be remembered by a traveler before going to South Korea. Remember that this incredible adventure tour of the country deserves to be enjoyed if someone is ready.
Now that flight promotions to South Korea are abundant especially on the internet, more and more people are packing their bags to travel to this spectacular country. But while coming to this East Asian country impulsively isn’t the wrong thing, it’s still important and definitely better to be prepared when you travel to a complex but exciting country like this.
