Resolved Question: Vacationing in South
South Korea News
My family and I are going on a 3-day trip to South Korea and I have some questions.
-Where do you recommend we go and sightsee?
-Where should we stay? My dad is contemplating between those traditional Korean houses (I think they're called guesthouses) we can stay in or a reasonably priced hotel. We haven't got one booked yet since he's still deciding. How much would they cost?
-How will we communicate with the people when we don't know the language?
-Should we book one of those tour things, where they show you certain spots around the city and translate things for you? I thought this was a good idea at first, but those tour things are usually on a tight schedule and go strictly only to the places they are assigned to.
-How do we navigate around? Korea is so different from America. It's kinda confusing. The subway system and streets also confuse me.
-Is the Korean currency similar to American currency? The exchange rate?
-Where should we eat?

Resolved Question: Is it dangerous to travel
Is it dangerous to travel South Korea if I don't have Korean look and speak Korean language?
My friends (both white) were intimidated without particular reasons when they were the Capital.
(one guy was hit when he told he did not smoke to a girl who works the cigarette promotion in the street.
I remember that Korean shop owner shot a black child in LA many years ago.
