Author's note: 'Life in Korea' posts are written towards those expats new or newer to Korea. If you have a more experienced perspective, feel free to show what you know in the comments.
Minbak, yeogwan, yeoinsul, motels, and hostels can be found in virtually every area of the country. With prices that rarely top 50,000 won a night, it's proof that traveling Korea doesn't have to be expensive. Wherever you stay, come with cash in hand - things just work easier that way.
