2 Canadians in Korea

Welcome to our blog. It's designed to give people back home an idea of what it's like living in South Korea and to allow you to follow us on our journey.

I've been blogging a lot of facts and I feel I should say that some of it is copy pasted from books, the internet and the signs that I took pictures of at the tourist site itself.

Cabs in South Korea

This is kind of interesting. Taxis can be found all over South Korea, obviously. There are a few spots like right in front of my apartment building where there will always be a cab. As soon as it leaves another pulls over to take it's spot. I have yet to walk past that spot and not see a cab. They also drive around and when they pass pedestrians they honk as if to say "do you need a cab?". If you want him to pull over all you have to do is a wave and dance that says yes and the cab will honk again to say "10-4" and the cab does a U-turn or drives over sidewalks or whatever it takes to get to you before another cab gets there. The cost for cabs is ridiculously cheap too. It cost us about $3.50 cnd to get as far as $20.00 cnd would have got us in Kitchener, Ontario. That's probably why a lot of people travel by cab. At that price, I don't see the need to ever purchase a mode of transportation.
