  • Is Seoul Korea safe?

    Sorry if this is in the wrong thread..
    but I mean as it safe as in you can walk on the street at night? I know you can't here because there is gangs and stuff.. I heard that I can be kidnapped and be brought into prostitution and never be seen again? I'm female.. is it safe?

    Hi.... Seoul is pretty safe in general in my opinion... Have been there a couple of times.... Of course it will be dangerous if u walk at night alone n in seluded places... If u are gg with a couple of frens there shouldnt be a prob with safety.... Jus avoid:

    1. Dark n quiet alleys alone or on general
    2. Avoid being flashy in terms of dressing and showing ur wealth

    Like this u *** attract unnecessary attention. stay alert at all times....

    Hope u enjoy seoul as much as i did :D

              I would say it's pretty safe generally. Been there during Dec for a 2 weeks trip. A v enjoyable and memorable place!! Hope you enjoy urself! Personally i don't like itaewon area at night esp during weekends as there are quite a number of clubs there. Tts also the area where foreigners like to gather, (e.g.. the blacks). They get pretty rowdy aft drinking abit. So avoid tt are if you're not a party animal Otherwise, i would say tt i love Korea ALOT!!

                    i visited seoul previously and stayed in a homestay called raon hanok homestay, cost me about $50++ a night, very safe, near anguk station. details here.
                    i find seoul very safe to travel around in.
