Where to stay


Apr 9, 2016
Anyone staying in Korea for an extended time should look into just renting out a studio apartment. There are tonnes of places around Yeoksam available for less than one million won a month (mine is 650,000/mo). Yeoksam is just one subway stop from Gangnam, and Apgujeong is just a few more stops away. Yeoksam to Gangnam is easily walkable; less than 1km apart.

If you have the time, I'd recommend just getting your own place and taking the time to recover. Then you can cook for yourself, which is convenient. And even better if you have someone with you to split the cost. Plus, clinics seem to treat you more nicely when you can give them a local address.
