Tourist Should Beware of in South Korea

  • Always walk on the right hand side : This condition is similar to Thailand. But it has to be reminded again. Because many people may walk joyously and do not expect to bump into people on the left hand side. For the orderliness of sidewalks and escalators, if you are not in hurry, the best way is always standing on your right hand side!
     
  • No need to tip : In Korea, mostly there is no need to give some tips. Due to the accommodation, food or other services are already included 10% service fee. So it is not to be rude if you do not give them some tips. Do not feel any guilty.
     
  • Penalty Fee so high when Smoking in the Prohibit Zones : Stop Smoking Campaign is quite strict in Korea. You can notice prohibiting smoking signs in many areas with the penalty fee of over 1,250 US dollars. Another important aspect is to blow smoke to an area where there is no people, and do not borrow lighter from senior non-smokers. Both behaviors are considered as bad manners in Korea!


  It is the wonderful time to visit Korea during Autumn season. Due to the weather is not so warm and so cold. Leaves and trees along the mountains and roads are changing color falling to the grounds which create the most magnificent fall foliage everywhere. The scenery is such beautiful as if it is envisaged from the Korean romantic series. This is the season that many people dream of once in their lifetime to visit Korea…
