5 Essential Travel apps for who have planning to KOREA

1. Naver Map


Naver is the Korea’s version of Google and NaverMap is especially useful if you’re looking for a specific shop. Since shops in Korea have a high turnover rate, it helps to check on Naver Map before you head out looking for a shop that has already closed.

Similar to Google MapsNaverMap has an upside-down teardrop shape that’s marked to wherever you wish to go and also a street view to ensure you’re on the right track. The downside? It’s in Korean. Now before you start wailing at what poor recommendation this is, take note that you’ll probably have a better chance of getting to your destination with NaverMap because their Google Maps might not be as updated — Koreans have literally no idea how Google Maps work.

2. Serentrip


Serentrip is for traveler who want to meet travel buddy or local friends on real time! The app finds a travel buddy for you according to your travel dates, destinations, and travel plans. Without revealing any personal information, the user can talk to each other and when you decide to join that person just hit the ‘Join Chat’ option and you will be able to check out the profile of your travel buddy on social media.
