There are so many exciting things to look forward to when we travel abroad. The food, the people, the culture, the architecture, the music, the fashion, the landmarks, the museums, the excursions, the list can be never ending. There are so many positive moments to fantasize about that we rarely think about other important factors that should be taken into consideration when traveling to a different country. Other countries have important traditions and laws to abide by that we may not be aware of.
South Korea, known for its green countryside mountains, cherry trees, ancient Buddhist temples, sub-tropical islands, and high-tech cities, was built on cultural traditions that may surprise you if you travel to this East Asian country. These cultural traditions include bans on things like certain behaviors, clothing, and even topics of conversation, as well as maintaining social etiquette rules. If you find yourself traveling to South Korea, you better review these rules before getting on the plane.
