#UltimateGuide. Korea in 1 week!

South Korea is one of the top recommended places for travelers to visit in Asia continent. There are several advantageous reasons. Country is geographically comparably small, its climate is mild with connection to sea, has rich culture and developed infrastructure. Politically democratic and safe for traveling. However, some may experience disadvantages as well, such as low level of English-speaking public and costly expenses. So, it would be desirable prerequisite to learn basic Korean phrases (or alphabet), and carefully plan touristic schedule beforehand. Having a little experience of living in Korea for around 4 years as a foreigner gives me insight to share the most culture engaging touristic sites (in my opinion) as well as cost-quality effective food places for foreigners. So, without a further ado:
