Korea’s subway system is kickass.
Trains that arrive on time, are clean, travel fast, have racks for you to put your bags on, segregated carriages for those who need seats – I was so impressed by their system while I was there. Taking the train no longer felt like a drag, I actually enjoyed my commute. (The bus system was something I didn’t try because it was mind-boggling to say the least) Their app is the cherry on top of the already delectable fresh cream cake, and it’s equally, if not more impressive.
WordPress.com has now officially implemented their paid plans – which means I have only 3GB of space for images on the free plan. What a bad time to be uploading image-heavy app posts!
In any case, all the apps pictured above are apps that I found immensely useful in Korea. I’ll be doing a quick introduction of Airbnb, Accuweather, XE Currency and Skyscanner in another post, but since they’re in English they should be simple to navigate. Daum Maps, Subway, and Yogiyo are apps that are in Korean, so I’ll be going into detail in the hopes that you’ll be able to use the app!
PS: Keeping the images on the post to a minimal to save space for the three Korean apps which will need more explanation! Bear with me.
Part two of the series with x instalments is here! This post will be mostly on my essentials from the 1.5 month Korea trip – I hope it helps you all with your travels too! xx
PS: This will include a lot of boliao information that my friends have asked me about as well.
My friend Jasmine came over from Singapore last week, and we were walking around Gangnam looking for food when I remembered that my Korean teacher strongly recommended a pizza place in Yeoksam-dong. Turns out it was just round the corner from where we were! Couldn’t help but step in and try it – we sure didn’t regret it.
I was re-reading one of my blogs a while back and in it I mentioned that I would do whatever it takes to get myself to Seoul for a semester of studying/living alone. Surprise! I’m here!
