Safety

  • Dangers & annoyances

    • Seoul is a relatively safe city, except when it comes to traffic. Drivers tend to be impatient with kimchi-hot tempers, and most of them, including bus drivers, routinely go through red lights, so don’t be the first or last person to cross over any pedestrian crossing.
    • Drunks in Seoul are better behaved than elsewhere so walking around at 3am shouldn’t pose a problem. The swaying packs of late-night revellers usually pose more of a threat to themselves than to other people. Of course there is always an exception, so arguing with a drunk should be avoided.
