What did you like most about your experience in Korea?

The people, people made me feel really welcoming and the services in most places where amazing.


If you could recommend one Korean dish to your friends, what would it be? Describe it.

Bibimbap. Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul and gochujang, soy sauce, or doenjang. A raw or fried egg and sliced meat are common additions. I love that dish because it is simple to make, and has a lot of flavours.


What was a new experience that you had in Korea?

When I went to Korea, I stayed most of the time in Yeonsinnae and in that part of the city there are not many foreigners therefore it was a new experience to be stared at by many people. I experience a lot of new dishes and ways to eat, visit Asian palaces and saw many technological advances that are not available here (America) yet.
