I am currently living in South Korea and have greatly appreciated this guidebook. It was helpful before I left in giving me a good synopsis of the country's history and culture and is helpful now that I'm here in getting around and seeing different sights. This travel book, unlike many others about Korea, is organized in a manner that is convenient and accessible for you if you need information quickly. I would highly recommend this book for your visit to South Korea and your adventures in this vibrant country.
