Planning Trip to South Korea

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are going to South Korea (from the US) in the next few/several weeks and would like your input. We've looked through some tour guides, including http://english.tour2korea.com/, but would like some input from fellow Fordorites who've been there!

MUST-SEE SITES
We're going primarily to pick up the baby boy we're adopting, but we will have several days for site seeing, too. We expect to spend most of our time in Seoul (or nearby).

CELL PHONES
We use Cingular phones in the US. For travel to Korea, we've read about rental cell phones, unlocking our phones (if possible), and international roaming from our carrier. What do you recommend?

ELECTRICAL OUTLET ADAPTERS
We've read that many hotels will have adapters we can use. Is that right? Or should we bring our own? Not real sure if we'll need adapters, especially if we don't use our cell phone chargers. :-)

CAMERA
We have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS which we will use for stills, but we may also use it to shoot a little video (meeting our baby, etc.). My concern is that we can shoot up to 1 hour of video on a 4GB card. Since I don't want to lug my laptop, I'm not sure how many cards I should take. Any input?

That should do it for now. We'll probably have more questions as the trip draws closer. :-)

Thanks!
