A train will be perfect for long distances and will take you from one end of the country to the other in a matter of hours.

Of course, in order to fully experience the culture and get a sense of what life in Korea is really like - you will definitely want to interact with the locals.

The language is not the easiest to learn but figuring out its intricate structure can be an extremely rewarding experience. A digital dictionary will be very useful - a safe bet if you find yourself in a linguistic pickle. It will make your adventure so much more interesting.
