When I visited East Asia I would like to have visited Tokyo but accomodation and living standard is much more expensive there. So I settled for Seoul instead - and how right was I. It turned out to be a fantastic advanture and I loved my time there. I would like to talk more about Seoul as it is a lively city with lots of clubs, restaurants, casinos and big shopping malls.--- seoul CULTURE ---
Instead of going to a Western style pub, why not try a Korean style bar? When in Seoul, do what the people in Seoul do and order some side dishes to go along a drink. It is a kind of culture there.
Booking clubs are one of the most common nightclubs where you can meet new friends of the opposite sex. The waiters there introduce people to each other by bringing them to the table but these clubs are slightly more expensive than normal bars. It is an extremely fun way to spend your evening - give it a try when you are there. Who knows - maybe you'll meet someone of your dreams!
Korea food is very tasty. You may not like it when you first see or smell it but I am sure you will love it once you have tried. The noodles and meat dishes are the best and the most famous. The well known dishes also include Korean style barbeque, hot pots and stone soup with chicken. When you order a main or rice dish, it will come with a few side dishes such as bean sprouts, kimchi, spinach, pickles and fishcake. Rice dishes are normally served in a bowl with meat or fish spread on top of it. I like to stir in some chilli powder to make it much more delicious.--- seoul GIFTS ---
The cuddly toys and jewels are the best souvenirs. The prices of cuddly toys are reasonably cheap compared to the West with plenty of choices. I bought a huge bear and a dinosaur and my friend loved them so much. The jewels especially the silver earrings, bracelet and pendants which one could easily mistaken for designer items can be bought very cheaply here now - they are not fake and definitely have character!--- HOTELS ---
Booking accommodation during off peak seasons will save a lot of money. However, a better way to mix budget and time will be to join a reliable tour. There are local tours which will have some tailor-made schedule to suit your needs.--- CONCLUSION ---
If you have been to some exotic places like Thailand or Vietnam, give Seoul a try and you will not be disappointed.
