One of the toughest parts about living in a new city, especially if you are in a different country, is understanding the various transportation systems.  Not only can maps be in a different language, but you may be unaware about what are the most cost effective  and efficient options to get you from point A to point B.  It is for this reason why I wanted to write a blog to provide new teachers, and those scheduled to begin teaching in Korea in the near future, the ultimate transportation guide to make their first days and weeks a little easier.  In my blog I will talk about all the modes of transportation in Korea, including everything from taking a train to utilizing Kakao T.
