Three Tips to Improve Vacation Travel while Teaching in Korea

Posted on Tue, Feb 17, 2015 @ 10:10 AM

One of the best aspects of teaching English in Korea is the ability to travel to many of the surrounding countries. However there were many travel tips I wish I knew beforehand. For instance, I remember my first few mistakes I made when traveling abroad in Korea, such as taking the wrong suitcase while island- hopping and eating a cold shrimp off the streets that was not cooked properly.  Also, there was the time that I missed an international flight because of not much transit time given in between flights and  being scammed on a $200.00 pot of tea. Other blunders included forgetting a passenger ticket on the plane and the depreciation of money that couldn't be exchanged again once back in Korea. All of these things have helped me prepare efficiently before trips and have made me become aware of the things that could go wrong.

I was pleased to see that it's the third largest city in Korea and it's next door to Seoul -- meaning popping into the city for weekend adventures would be a cinch. However, I quickly noticed that there's a serious lack of Incheon-coverage in the blog world. So, I present, in no particular order, my top 5 spots to check out in Incheon!
