Little things you don’t know about Korea
Incheon International Airport
Incheon International Airport is the largest airport in South Korea and one of the largest and busiest airports in the world. The airport has a golf course, spa, private sleeping rooms, ice skating rink, a casino, indoor gardens and a Museum of Korean Culture. There's free wifi at all the international gates too. As we known, Korea has become the world leader in Internet connectivity and speed. The speed of wifi is really fast in airport. Besides that, non 3G phone is unable to use in Korea. But you can always lend phone in airport!
Some experiences when I was in Seoul....
When I took a bus in Seoul, I realized that my coins were not enough to take the trip. However the bus driver was so kind and just allowed me to take the bus.
I was getting lost in Olympic Park Stadium. I was failed to find the stadium since that area are full of stadiums, like basketball stadium etc. However a man told me the direction to there when I was asking a passenger. It really warmed me when I was in trouble.
Convenient Public Transportation
Most of the tourist spots have the subwat station. I walked around there by using SMRT and bus. Sometimes in taxi when I got lost. The SMRT is really speedy and convenient.
Unlimited foods and drinks
I guess most of the you know that when we can refill side dishes and drinks when we dining in Korea restaurant. However in Korea, we also can refill water our own. They usually have the drinking machine in restaurant. We can grab a cup and refill the plain water anytime when we are thirsty! It is free.
If you visit Korea, I'm pretty sure that you will be shocked by too many cafe. I was so shocked when I saw there are coffee shops everywhere in Korea! I guess Korea has the most numerous coffee shop per area in the world. Some coffee shops names are quite cute and interesting, like Caffe Bene, Angel-in-us, Seven Monkeys and more. (SJ Oppa operate coffee shop too - Kona Beans) When you get tired after shopping, you can always enjoy your coffee in the coffee shop with your friends. Enjoy your leisure moment after having a busy life.
Lotteria versus Macdonald
I saw most of the fast food restaurants were Lotteria. Lotteria is the major Burger joint in Korea. Korea is one of two countries where Mc Donald’s is not a market leader of burger beside French. Lotteria achieved this success in part by introducing lines of Koreanized fast foods including its now signature kimchi burger, and strikes most initial visitors as a Korean version of most Western-style fast food restaurants with some local additions. However, Korean McDonald's stores are usually located in malls, buildings, etc. rather than separate structures.
Take your food when it is vibrating and lighting up!
