Korea in cold season

Korea's cold season has begun. If you don't like cold weather, avoid Korea. If you have to go now, pack plenty of winter clothes. The G-20 meeting in Seoul is over, so you should be able to move about freely in Seoul. When you go to a train station in Seoul for the first time, look for a free train map. It is a must for any train riders.

Bangkok's dry season has begun. It is a good time to visit Bangkok. For the travelers who have US dollars, Bangkok is getting expensive. $1 often fetches less than 30 baht.
