Teaching English Abroad 1 Year - Beijing or Seoul?

Jump to last reply

I am 23 years old from the United States and I'm about to venture abroad for 1 year to teach English. I am torn between Beijing or Seoul. Both great cities with much to offer. I am open to new experiences and can't decide which city to live in.

I know I will be happy in either city. I need feedback!

So the question is basically, where would you rather live for 1 year?
All around I am looking for.
Food
Night life
People
Sight seeing
etc, anything you can think of!
I want the best experience!
(I do understand that the language barrier is more difficult in China...Rossetta Stone could help with that)
Also, I will be traveling as well, meaning China is larger and you can see more in china alone than in S Korea. Also, when I fly out of China I think flights would be cheaper since Beijing is more Int'l.

Thanks for your help & guidance!
