韓国旅行中の失敗談と教訓

Mistakes and lessons learned while traveling in Korea

Posted by いーしむぅ on

Traveling to Korea is an attractive country known for its tourist attractions and delicious food. However, traveling abroad always comes with mistakes. This time, I would like to talk about mistakes I made while traveling in Korea and the lessons I learned from them.

1. Language barrier

When I first visited Korea, I was confused because I didn't understand a word of the local language, Korean. This made me realize how important it is to learn basic phrases and words before traveling.

2. Relying too much on maps

I once got lost in downtown Seoul, and learned the importance of checking the route in advance and not relying too much on map apps.

3. Jet lag

Jet lag can wreak havoc on your local sightseeing plans, so once you arrive, it's important to try and get used to the local time as quickly as possible.

4. Food allergy issues

I had an experience where I didn't inform people in advance that I had food allergies and ended up having trouble eating at the local restaurant, so I make sure to always provide allergy information.

5. Crowded tourist spots

I found that popular tourist spots are always crowded, so to avoid the crowds, I recommend going early or in the off-season.

6. Taking the wrong mode of transportation

I once misunderstood how to ride the subway or bus and ended up going in the wrong direction. It is important to understand the rules in advance and choose your mode of transportation carefully.

7. Forgetting to exchange currency

I have had the experience of panicking because I didn't have the currency I needed to make a payment locally, so it's important to exchange currency in advance.

8. Ignoring local customs

My disregard for local customs and manners affected my communication with those around me. It is important to deepen your understanding of different cultures.

9. Poor luggage organization

I have had the experience of only carrying the bare necessities and not having the things I needed when I got there. It is important to choose your travel items carefully and prepare in a planned manner.

10. Weather Effects

I didn't research the local weather and climate in advance, and I went sightseeing without an umbrella, so I was unable to adapt to changes in the weather. I always make sure to prepare for any weather conditions.

11. Review your budget

I have had the experience of not making a proper budget before traveling and spending more than I expected when I was there. It is important to manage your budget well and avoid unnecessary spending.

12. What to do in an emergency

I learned that it is important to be prepared for emergencies in a foreign country. I research local emergency contact numbers and apps in advance, and I also try to be vigilant about safety.

Conclusion

The stories of mistakes I made while traveling in Korea are full of lessons I can use on my next trip. I try to learn from my mistakes and make my trip more comfortable and fulfilling every day.
