LANGUAGE

The official local language is Korean. However, be prepared that most of the vendors do not speak English, even in touristy areas. If you’re a Chinese, you can still understand a little as they know a few Chinese characters like the price of their merchandises. If you’re not, you may have to start doing some hand language with them.

Unfortunately, most of the locals can only understand a little bit of English and they can hardly converse with you in English.

    I’d love to visit South Korea! It actually was on my bucket list when I travelled for a year but in the end we had to cut out a few destinations. I will still make it there one day though 🙂

    I’ve always love Korea because of its film industry that conveys all of its cultures to the world. Jeju is on my bucket list this summer! Love the itinerary, I’ve saved it for later 😀
