Trip Type:
City break Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Stay more than one night. You will thank me later.

Liked: Severely underrated city in Korea. I fell in love with this place, can see myself living there. I had the most excellent chat with old Korean man on the subway, and here Korean women are extremely beautiful (unlike in Seoul).

Disliked: Technology infrastructure lags behind Seoul. This is evident with subway ticket machines...they only accept coins and 1,000 won bills.
