Etiquette
When offering or accepting food, gifts etc., it is polite and customary to use both hands. Hello = an-nyong ha-sim-ni-ka. Thank you = kam-sa ham-nida. Though it is not customary to give tips in Korea, the guides love them! We suggest small gifts for the guides and driver like cigarettes, or chocolates. Some provisions are also good for the train ride and to share on the bus while on tour.
