Possible Move to Changwon

Hi there,

I have travelled Central America and now want to start exploring Asia. I thought a teaching position might facilitate this. I have the possibility of moving to Changwon, not sure exactly where. Are there some things I need to be concerned about? Such as location, certain neighborhoods, or things that might jeopardize my safety? I would love to live in Korea and be able to travel to other parts of Asia. Any help with this city would be greatly appreciated.

Changwon is a nice place. Southern part mainly large factories. City has no dangerous or unsafe districts. Frankly S Korea is pretty safe all round, although foreigner areas like Itaewon can get edgy.

ethelman2, is there something in particular I need to see my first few days here. I just found out the school I will be working at is in Uichang-gu. Any insight will be very useful. Thanks.
