Where to live in South Korea?

Jump to last reply

Hi. I'm applying for a position to teach English in South Korea. The description says "Recipients will be placed at schools in rural areas in need of greater exposure to English". We can put a preference of where to live, and have several choices. Currently I'm looking at the southern provinces, particularly Jeju, Busan (outlying region), Gyeongnam and Jeonnam. Can anyone give me some pros or cons of these places? Opinions?

I don't really need a large city, but hope to travel on the weekends and go to several temples, festivals, etc. Also, I hope to travel to Japan, Thailand and China at some point as well.

Any advice, opinion or information is helpful... THANKS!
