Guesthouses are inexpensive and are a good way to experience Korean culture and meet other foreign tourists. Backpackers can receive a lot of information from the owners of the guesthouse. They also offer special weekend programs that allow foreigners to meet Koreans.
Guesthouses offer foreign tourists the opportunity to learn about Korea firsthand and meet new Korean friends. Many guesthouses are remodeled family homes (generally sharing bathrooms) and are nearby downtown areas and tourist destinations. The price for one night is around 15,000-40,000 won.
