Is it worth to visit Seoul?
In the city or in its close vicinity you can find lots of different attractions. If you search for unique architecture, food, nature and culture or history – you’ll find it all!
Koreans have very unique traditional clothes, especially female clothing is quite interesting. Unfortunately, these days, people don’t wear these clothes so often; even for special occasions like wedding, brides often choose western dresses. But if you’re lucky, you can still meet people wearing traditional clothing in South Korea. 🙂
Each country has its own cuisine; it’s somehow unique but still we often can find similarities between others cuisines.
I could say, that Korean cuisine is a bit like a mixture of Chinese and Japanese cuisine. Many dishes looked to me a bit like Japanese, but Koreans eat more meat (just my impression).
Kimchi (kind of sauerkraut) is probably the best known Korean dish.
I was in South Korea 9 years ago, so maybe the situation changed; however that time, it was quite difficult to find someone speaking English. On the other hand, traveling was quite convenient, there was lots of written information in English, so I found everything I was searching for (sooner or later 😉 ).
What’s the main difference between Chinese and Korean language?
(Sorry for this naive text; it’s just from a person who has not so much idea about languages! 🙂 )
In Chinese, there is no alphabet; they have many (many, many!!!) characters, but no single letters. So I thought, it’s the same with Korean language. But it’s not! Korean alphabet exists and the number of letters in Korean is not so much different from e.g., English alphabet.
