Safety & Security (South Korea)

South Korea is known to be extremely safe and crime is low, however, petty crime still happens. To protect yourself from petty crime avoid walking alone at night, keep your belongings close, don't accept drinks/food or cigarettes from strangers and don’t leave food or drinks unattended. Please keep in mind that cash or wallets in pockets, obvious jewellery & swinging handbags may attract unwanted attention. Make sure your valuables and cash are secure & inconspicuous.

Do not leave any valuables unattended in your hotel room. There are safe deposit boxes available at Reception to lock valuables away as most hotels will not have in-room safes. Bring a lock for your main luggage. While sightseeing or travelling between cities, you must carry these valuables with you.
