The Korean language uses a different alphabet than we use in the Western world, it's called Hangeul. But this doesn't have to be a problem when you're travelling. Nowadays there are several solutions to find you way in Korea. Also when you want to have a chat with the locals or just order food at a restaurant.
Which sites are worth a visit? Which hotels or hostels are nearby? Where do I buy train tickets? Do I pay with cash when travelling by subway, or should I buy a T-money card (pre-paid card for public transportation)? What are the business hours of banks and shops?
Internet is very helpful to prepare your trip to Korea.
