A Note about Using Taxis for Foreigners

South Korea's common address system does not go by street and street number. Because of this most taxi drivers do not know how to drive you to your destination if you provide him with only an address. This happens even if the taxi is equipped with a satellite navigation system. Please also note that many taxi drivers do not speak any foreign languages.
When taking taxis, locals usually provide detail directions to the destination or references to famous landmarks. You can use this landmark to get to El Bulín by taxis. Be sure to mention "Sinsa-dong" so the taxi driver knows which general area you are talking about.

  • Young Dong Hotel (영동 호텔) - Young Dong Hotel is across the street from El Bulín.
