First time travelling to South Korea, any tips please!!!!

Hi all

Myself and three others are travelling to Korea in December

Just wondering from anyone who has been there what do we need for this trip. It's a three week trip and I just want to know what we have to do before and during the time we are there.

How would you pay for things there, because I don't have a credit card. Planning to just take debit card and cash.

Any helpful tips will do.

Thank you.

Remember to buy the T-Money Card which you need for their public transport! The card can be reload at their machine at any subway stations.
