Coliving in South Korea

South Korea is in east Asia and shares a border with North Korea on the Korean peninsula. Its capital city is Seoul. Mostly the population is Korean, although there are some Chinese living there. Many foreigners find it a desirable place to live, so it is an ideal place for coliving.
Seoul is known for its ancient palaces—there are five in the city. The most impressive is Gyeongbokgung, which means the “palace greatly blessed by heaven.” It will remind people who have been to China of the Forbidden City. You can spend at least half a day wandering around this site as it has a cultural park as well as a living museum.

If you happen to be in South Korea in October, you should visit Jinju, where there is a lantern festival. The festival commemorates the thousands of people who died in the Imjin War fighting the Japanese. However, the festival is no sombre occasion. There’s food and drink to be had and, of course, it’s a great opportunity to sample traditional food outside the capital city.
If you are in South Korea in late April, go to Jindo and cross the land bridge connecting the main island to a smaller one. The festival to attend is the Jindo Moses Miracle Festival. If you don’t fancy that, go to the Jinhae Cherry Blossom Festival to see the magnificent blossoms.

Go to a jjimjilbang (a public bath), where you can relax with people of your own gender.
Are you addicted to fish and seafood? Then you really must visit Jagalchi Fish Market in Busan. It’s the largest one of its kind in South Korea. You can choose what you want to eat, and it will be cooked while you wait and watch.

Facts about South Korea:
• South Koreans eat kimchi, which is a made with fermented vegetables, at almost every meal. It’s a side dish.
• When a baby is born, Koreans think that it is a year old.
• The number 4 is a very unlucky number for Koreans.
• If you want really fast WiFi, go to Korea.
• South Koreans love shopping, and you’ll find the biggest malls in the world there.

Finding affordable communal living in South Korea

Finding affordable housing in South Korea can be tough, especially in cities with high rent prices. One solution that many people turn to is communal living with shared spaces and roommates. This can be a cost-effective way to have a private room while still being able to afford rent in a desirable location. There are a few different options for finding a shared living arrangement in South Korea. One option is to look for a private room for rent in a coliving home. This can be a good option for people who want some privacy, but still want to be part of a community. Another option is to look for a shared room, where you'll be sharing a bedroom with one or more roommates. This can be more affordable, as you'll only be responsible for paying for your own bed. The downside is that you'll have less privacy, as you'll be sharing a bedroom with others. You can find both accommodation options on Coliving.com. We can help you find a compatible roommate based on your preferences and lifestyle. Some hosts do background checks and eviction history checks to ensure that the roommates you're living with are trustworthy individuals. When looking for a shared living arrangement, it's important to do your due diligence and make sure that you're comfortable with the living arrangement and the people you'll be living with.
