Bargaining Fun In South Korea

Bargaining Fun

Shopping or buying something is very interesting for tourists when visiting South Korea.

Tourists have to use finger language as well as calculator to bargain with Koreans because of the language barrier. Most of Koreans whom I had met were very polite and friendly, so you will be satisfied for what you want and bring back your sweet memories. Remember to bring along a calculator and shop happily when you pay a visit to South Korea.
