Seoul Tip
Public Transport

For ease of mobility, get a T-Money card and download the transit app, Kakao Subway, which will tell you all of the connections, wait times and best routes for your commute. (Side note: if venturing outside of the city, make sure to have some won on hand, as some places still don’t accept cards.)

Seoul Tip
Hongdae Neighborhood

The Hongdae neighborhood is the center of nightlife for college students in Seoul – you’ll likely make some new friends from all over the world hanging out in Hongdae Park. Try to catch one of the many cool events, like Silent Discos that take place very frequently right inside the playground area. All throughout the city you’ll randomly come across a street performance or a parade of some sort but Hongdae is an especially great area for interesting activities and delicious street food.
