Thatโ€™s a great suggestion thanks nrxfxwpmc

anyone around and want to hang out this weekend? I signed up for some random meetups but would also be down for a smaller ad hoc thing
dekim24 20d
i'm staying near hapjeong but fine going anywhere. also today I happen to be working from our office in gangnam
I'm staying near Hapjeong, too. We can have lunch on Saturday or Sunday.
My friend has just got his working holiday visa. He's French with fluent English but he doesn't speak Korean. He worked with handicapped children before. He's looking for non-menial meaningful work where he can feel like he's making a difference. Does anyone have any suggestion?
dekim24 19d
I realized I have plans at lunchtime tomorrow but Sunday might work. I'll let you know one way or another by tomorrow evening
dekim24 19d
I don't suppose Sunday dinner time works for you at all?
dekim24 19d
Can you show me the menu immediately before this screen?
dekim24 19d
You shouldn't need to even get to this stage
dekim24 19d
Oh I see. So this is what I was referring to by the 2 or 3 menu options. You selected the first one "1 click checkout" which requires an ARC
dekim24 19d
You need this 3rd option to be available and then it should work
nomadlist 19d
๐Ÿ“ธ Did you take any photos at the Seoul meetup this week? โœ… Upload them here
Where is he now?
It does. Why not? We can have dinner if you prefer that, just let me know.
Ah, good. Actually I donโ€™t know yet but I want to help him to find a way.
Hey ufotlhpaozuxieya did you find a digital nomad community in Seoul?
If you know about something that might suit him please let me know. The working holiday visa is relatively easy to get but surprisingly hard to utilize in practice.
Yeah, many people dont know about it in Korea.
lewis_m 16d
Ah shiet missed this
dekim24 16d
Oh sorry I also lost track of this thread....
Hey guys! Does anyone have lived in Seoul, South Korea, could recommend any kid-friendly places to visit? I mostly interested in cool and unusual activities for 7 y.o kid, kids-friendly co-working spaces, babysitters/nannies services.

In addition to my question, does anyone has a plan to hang up this week?
Korea has babysitter service but itโ€™s expensive.
20~30 per hours.

Anyone ever have problems with the Airalo Asialink eSIM here? It worked for a whole 2 hours before I started getting "Emergency Calls Only". Support has so far been unresponsive. It could be something weird with my phone.
Meanwhile I'm trying to figure out if there are any decently priced physical SIM cards I could get with at least 1GB of hotspot data (Woori caps at 300MB), good for the 2 weeks I'm here, and under ~$30. EG seems to have a couple plans (e.g. LTE 5 GB + 50 min, 20 days, KRW 30,000) but I'm not sure if I can buy it in-person (e.g. at an emart24) or I need to order online and wait a long time to get it delivered. Thanks for any info.
The price is fine. Could you please share a link to the service?

jeonghcho 15d
Lotte World, Seoul Grand Park, Seoul Children's Grand Park are great places for kids!
Also recommend looking up 'kids cafe' on google map or naver map. You might need to check if it's okay for 7 year old because some are targeted for younger age kids.
leifty 15d
Update I got a Nomad eSIM for just South Korea and after a couple hiccups it seems to be working. And their customer support responds instantly except after a day and a half like Airalo's. I saw a comment on Reddit that someone else had problems with Airalo's Asialink eSIM here. I think I'll be avoiding Airalo from here on out.
I normally go to Champion The Black Belt on Saturday or Sunday with my son.

If you would like to join us feel free to ask, Maybe next week we would go there ๐Ÿ™‚
most famous babysitters/nannies services(, in Korea may be hard to use for foreigner due to language and payment method.

If you want me to help to reserve the service for you, I can help you ๐Ÿ™‚
Hey, Is some body interested in attending a meet up to meet people working in Korea or other Nomadist in Korea?

โ€ข Introduction about Person living here and Q&A

I had a really good experience with Airalo while travelling around in Europe. Never used it anywhere in Asia.
jeonghcho 15d
I'd be interested in this! ๐Ÿ™Œ
jeonghcho 15d
I'm also suggesting a meetup next Thursday 24th Nov evening. Haven't yet decided on the location and time but will be drinks and dinner. There are already a few of us who will join from previous meetups. Let me know if anyone is interested ๐Ÿ™‚
Thank you! Thatโ€™s super helpful!
akbarr 15d
Would love that!
Hi, I am planning to travel to South Korea for a one week vacation on December 2nd week... Which places and activities would you suggest?
maudfri 14d
Outside of Seoul and Busan, you need to go to Jeonju.
Suwon, for a day trip from Seoul is nice.
Gyeongju and Andong (for the Hahoe village) can be nice too.
It will be cold, but if you can hike one time, it could be nice. Except that, each city main tourist points usually worth the visit. (Palaces, the city wall and museums in Seoul, Fish Market, city center and Gamcheon in Busan, just walk around the city and visit the palace and night market in Jeonju, kind of the same for Gyeonju)
Hiking is great if thats your thing. I hiked Jirisan and loved it
Unfortunately not a big hiker..
I'd be interested in attending as well
lewis_m 14d
Also interested in this. (<@UCDNMEDQR> might be as well)

Will be out of town on the 24th for a week or so, if itโ€™s before then I can make time for it
Thank you for your interst. What time slot do you guys(ladies) prefer?

โ€ข weekday daytime( before 18:00 )
โ€ข After working hour
in weekdays
โ€ข Weekends
Weekdays before 18:00 and weekends work for me
migsyboy 13d
I'd be interested!

Do authorities at the airport ask for the return flight details? I will be travelling from Japan but only have a one-way flight. Thanks!
We're going out tonight to Hongdae. Not sure about the details but if you happen to read this would you like to join?
No problem, I'm here on a one way flight, too. They don't inquire about flights or accommodation at all.
migsyboy 13d
Awesome, thanks a lot.
lewis_m 12d
Iโ€™ll be out of town but will come to the next one!
Yes would be great, count me in
jeonghcho 12d
Yay! I'll post a Nomadlist meetup as soon as I find a venue!

I'm interested but my flight out is on Saturday
dekim24 10d
~Can I also invite a local friend who isn't a digital nomad (as far as I know)?~ never mind - they have a conflict anyway
dekim24 10d
Well, I figured out the reason my notifications weren't working here at least
dekim24 10d
We actually went out in Gangnam that night anyway, but thanks for the invite - did you see the post about the meetup on Thursday?
Yes, signed up. See you there.
How much was it for what size of apartment?
Have I been unlucky, or is it not possible to charge a T-money card with a credit card?

If only cash is allowed, what are the ATMs that charge no fee, or as little as possible, for a foreign card?

Many thanks in advance!
Found NH Bank didn't charge me a fee
lewis_m 8d
Cash usually
lewis_m 8d
This was mostly in Gangnam ^
Oh thanks
dekim24 8d
I'll try to come around 6

Anyone watching the WC games somewhere today?
lewis_m 7d
Iโ€™ll attend the next one, flying to Thailand in a few hours

Looking forward to meeting some of you in person next time
I'll try to be there by 6 too
leifty 7d
I'm on Discord and can't access slack on my phone, but i saw some discussion on slack (which doesnt seem to show up here?) about people meeting early (at 6). Was that at the same place (Hoseonsaengjeon) or somewhere else?
We can meet here?

Great, thanks. I'll probably get there at 6:10 or 6:15

Actually i'll be there at 6... the place I was trying to closed sooner than Google Maps said (should have looked at Kakao or Naver I guess...)
dekim24 7d
I'm running late so will just head to the bar at 7
Okay! I'll meet you there!
leifty 7d
I'm here... long red hair
I'll be there at 19 / 19.15
We're at the venue early! You can come here if you arrive early
Sorry, I'll be there later then expected

๐Ÿ›ฌ mntsfqpz just arrived in ๐Ÿœ Seoul, #south-korea
The first one is an alert for the cold wave saying that the temperature is dropping a lot tonight - take care and be careful things getting frozen!
The second one is just a daily report on new cases of COVID-19.
cephei 2d
haha, ya. itโ€™s just that Iโ€™m getting these 6 times already todayโ€ฆ
cephei 2d
never had an โ€œextrem emergency alertโ€ on my phone before. so the first one was def. a surprise. but now after ~6 alerts~ 7 alerts its getting annoying
yeah haha, there's been a lot of messages today. It's just getting unusually cold tonight cold_face and the gov is warning for all sorts of possible accidents - people freezing to death, water meter burst, fire from too much heating, etc.
Be careful everyone ๐Ÿ™
cephei 2d
ah, so this isnโ€™t the norm. it just happens to be my first day here, so idk ๐Ÿ˜„
yeap, I guess the covid alarm will continue daily but not the cold wave! I mean it will get cold eventually but such a rapid change is not usual.
