안녕, 한국

Hello family and friends! 안녕 가족과 친구들 We’re in South Korea! 🇰🇷 This is a first stop on our month long trip to Korea, Japan and Hong Kong. We’re spending 5 full days here.

Seoul Tourist Information

If you’re anything like me, you’d love to pick up a physical brochure map from the area. Seoul Tourist Guide provided by Visit Seoul can be found at Seoul Station and these other Information center locations.

Individual maps of different areas of Seoul and Seoul Metro Station Maps are handed by the Red Angels, 48 tourist information interpreters and guides working at tourist information centers under the Seoul Metropolitan Government deployed to resolving civil complaints and help out with any tourist enquiries. They’re walking around the city with bright red vests and at eight major locations frequently visited by foreigners. Red Angels locations.

To make your life easier, here’s some links with a list of PDFs to the guides and maps mentioned above.
