        To add to this. People think countries outside of america are cheaper. It's not. If you want the standards of an american. You'll pay the prices of ab american. With that said. 66k yearly equivalent income should still propel you to local lord levels in whatever small village you decide to live in. With brick houses same as your neighbours.

          I'm renting a condo in Makati for only $500 a month. It has a gym, a pool, air conditioning, and we eat out many multiples of times per week.

          It's hilarious you think that you need to spend high amounts to live an american quality of life. I live like a King here. The same would be true if we went to Gyenongju or however you spell the city.

    About 3 years late. Colombia did the same shit right as Covid was ending and Colombia is in an economic death spiral.

    Naturally as an American, I don't understand these third world shitholes not having an open arms policy towards anyone that can afford the flight there.

    Worst yet is the elitist attitude like Colombia (It's a fricking shithole in terminal decline), here with SK, and the ever-arrogant Thai thinking their fricking dump countries are some dreamscape. Mexico is just as bad now too.

    Worst case do like the Thai and ask to see a grand in cash before they stamp the passport, that filters out the literal poors. What the frick is there to do in SK other than see the autism lights in Seoul and eat bad BBQ?

                it's 5 minutes from a main train stop, how is that a "bad area" unless you're living on texas street you're fine. Busan is really hard to get a sketch area unless you just want to b***h

                >Again I don't see how it's so "cheap" when you get more for your $ in any neighboring country.
                The original point was that I can get an apartment for <350, I just pulled 2 examples at random since I am waiting for laundry to be done. I didn't look all that hard but airbnb isn't an exclusive club. If you spent a 100 or so more you can easily get more. No shit the rooms are small, back home in the US I get a 895 sq ft 2br place for 680/mo that I split with a roommate to watch my shit. Of course other places can win but I'm not in a lease when abroad nor do I care to do all that paperwork.

                >no girl is going to come over to that place lmao.
                Yeah I take it you've never seen the inside of a girls place in asia then. Also, why not just use a love hotel instead, they are so piss cheap that is a good go to for one nighters. Alternatively go to their place.

                >At this point I would rather just pay $1500 for a tokyo apt.
                If you went to500-1000 in korea you'd get some apartments in high rises, by all means go blow 1k/mo on an apartment. Not my job to baby sit you so you can constantly move goalposts.

I'm from the US and working 12PM->7AM was my ideal schedule but would often snooze a bit after 4AM and meetings were done, then I'd just be out and about from 8AM->5PM before getting home and sleeping a bit before work.

                Korea is cheap enough for a small apartment to be ~300-400/mo depending how nice you want it. If you're from the EU or US, then you're most likely working off hours when shit frick all to do on a weekday night anyways. Past few months in Korea I have been working midnight->8am, then I just go out for the better part of the day till about 5PM and sleep 6PM->midnight before rolling over to get to my laptop.

                If you're doing some helpdesk monkey phone support job as DN you'll most always drive yourself crazy. DN's who make it are generally Sr. or Jr. level roles within a company being more project based than "how many tickets did you do today anon!".

                Anon, if you look at the window in your second place in Seoul, you can clearly tell it's 반지하 (Half-Basement apartment)
                There is a reason why it's so cheap, and honestly you should NEVER take one of these studios.
                If heavy rain/flood ever comes (which during the summer in seoul there's usually one week with major flooding) your studio is basically fricked and everything will be waterlogged.
                And even if it's not flooding, i lived in one of those apartments before, and i went away for two weeks during the summer to another country, when i came back the walls, my sheets, fricking everything had tons of mold growing on it, you MUST have a dehumifider on 24/7.

                With Seoul, prices really do depend on where you live, rent is actually not terrible for decent studios, but they usually come with large deposits (min $4000-5000 USD).
                There's also Goshiwon or Oneroomtels which are alot more affordable with no or very miniscule deposit needed, and some of them can actually be pretty decent, but usually you can't bring girls over, you can't really cook anything, and the walls are really thin.

                But that's just Seoul though, Busan is alot better and alot more affordable, you can get a beachview studio on Haeundae for like 300 bucks a month with like $1000 deposit... now the issue there is how fricking racist the busan nightlife scene is lol....

He lost his virginity in my country so I was basically his best friend by virtue of my birthplace. We chilled and then he took me to a KTV if you understand what I'm saying. It was pretty alright.

You all are focus on like the dumbest shit sometimes, if you want a pussy rated apartment spend 200-300 extra for an actual furnished place in Soeul to bring women back to.

                I actually stayed in a place like that for about 3 months, not the same place but who would stay in the same apartment for more than 30-45 days when you are a digital nomad. Go out and see some different shit. In terms of focusing, it's pretty easy compared to some places I've been fricked into working abroad with. If you were WFH during covid this is a no brainer.

                >I don't know exactly how anyone would "focus" in an apartment with a shitty bed and no furniture.
                Because I worked in an office before and understand it's still better than that. Seems to have a computer desk in it for working, bed for chilling, fridge for some food, and bathroom. I'd rather live economically so I have more spending money on my next country or just in general spending money for the weekends than "wow I got a sofa I don't use". As others have pointed out you could spend 200 extra a month and heavily upgrade. Just depends where you set most of your value in.

                Can anyone actually do that? Digital nomad shit is an extremely unreliable source of income.

                How, it's the same shit as working from home you're just paying transportation costs to work abroad.

                Work from home is stable, whereas being abroad means you're at the mercy of a decent internet connection, the timezone and being easily contactable.

Leasing out a room for a house that generates money is more feasible to some folks. I'll stick with doing 1-2 month airbnb's if it means I don't have deal with kim-dongsuc

        if you're under 6'2, don't have a NW1 hairline, lift too much or are fat, aren't fashionable, have a long nose, you're fricked.

        Height bias is a real thing there, not a meme like in the US. If you're 5'9 (like me) in Seoul, it's over, but I had zero problems in NYC, supposedly the city with the highest standards aside from SF or Seattle. Literally all of Korean men heightfraud with lifts up to a 5'11 minimum, it's fricking pathetic

If you're from the EU or US, then you're most likely working off hours when shit frick all to do on a weekday night anyways. Past few months in Korea I have been working midnight->8am, then I just go out for the better part of the day till about 5PM and sleep 6PM->midnight before rolling over to get to my laptop.

Even smoking cannabis in a country where smoking cannabis is legal can lead to you being thrown in prison when you return to South Korea—they’ll drug test you at the airport.

    I swear if you only read this board and no other travel sources you would think the only thing in the world to do outside of your home country is horizontal shuffling. It is so mind-blowing to me that you morons presumably travel (no actual evidence that you do travel) to countries halfway across the world for something you could easily get in basically any city in your home country.
    Like why even travel? Just save the air fare and it'll make up for the increased price of local "guides"

        So the thing is - you have to speak fluent Korean to do this. Koreans hate outsiders, are probably the most xenophobic/racist pricks on the face on the planet, and this door is slammed shut unless you speak conversational Korean. Even then it's a toss-up if they'll accept you. This is not really an average tourist's option

          Getting out into the countryside is hardly difficult on day trips in SoKo. Gyeongju's reservoir area is pretty accessible and has loads of fun gravel paths, hills, streams, and little forests to smash through. Gyeonju itself is fairly accessible from Busan's North Bus terminal in about 50 minutes. The KTX station Shin Gyeongju is a bit outside of town, but taxis make up the quick ride in. The city also has a number of old burial mounds, remnants of old palaces, and temples as it was once the capital during the Unit Shilla Period.

          For the villages, you do not have to speak fluent Korean. It does help, but it is not reallty necessary. Many of the guidebooks or websites travel guides will list some of the older folk villages that can be fun to hang out in. Some of the more authentic out of the way ones are easy to get to if you work out a bit of the transit system. Some of the small islands off the coast in and around Incheon or off Mokpo are great. I am not sure what you said or did to get the door slammed in your face, but many of the small places I visited were insanely welcoming. I was given food and booze pretty much everywhere I went . The old people in general were especially welcoming which is much of the rural population now.

          Well, throughout history Japan kept invading Korea and mogging them. Japanese soldiers even killed the Korean queen in her palace.

          >So the thing is - you have to speak fluent Korean to do this. Koreans hate outsiders, are probably the most xenophobic/racist pricks on the face on the planet, and this door is slammed shut unless you speak conversational Korean. Even then it's a toss-up if they'll accept you. This is not really an average tourist's option
          From reading this I can tell with 99% certainty that you are some shade of brown. I drove through South Korea with a friend and had nothing but positive experiences with the people. If you speak a few basic words and phrases in Korean people will appreciate you making the effort and go out of their way to help you. I am white though, your experience will differ if you're a bigger or a pajeet. Most places that have a sign saying "no foreigners" really just mean no brown foreigners.

            Exactly. I was in South Korea about a year ago and have never been refused entry anywhere. One time when I stood in line at a bar in Busan the guy at the door pointed at the No Foreigners sign, but I just said "Hanguk saram imnida" which means "I am Korean" and the guy laughed and let me in. Just don't be a Black person and don't be a social moron and you'll be fine.

      We meme but let me be real for a second here: travel in 2024 is just not worth it.
      It has been progressively getting worse for decades with plane tickets getting more expensive, airlines removing standard features and repackaging them as first-class/business, globalization and social media utterly making travel a farce.
      Travel in 2024 is very much not worth it, you have to go through so much hassle and bullshit for a disappointing experience. You really are better off saving on airfare.

        As someone who has been traveling on-and-off again my whole life, and really started traveling permanently almost a decade ago, I have to agree. Traveling is absolute ass now post-COVID. I basically came to the conclusion in 2023 that the only reason I am even traveling overseas anymore is because it is cheaper and some places have nicer weather. Stopped giving a frick about meeting locals when they all got brainwashed and addicted to Western social media, stopped shopping and experiences at local businesses when they all got replaced by major Global brands and stopped meeting other expats when they all became boring, blow-hard Digital Nomad dorks. Once the costs go up in enough countries versus just staying back in the West, I'm pretty much done with this lifestyle unless I can find a diamond in the rough country somewhere.

If hordes of oldgay foreigners plow upper-class spending power into an area, everything that springs up will be built to globohomosexual boomer tastes. Oldgay boomers fricked up America with their endless luxury subdivisions and shopping strips, then they took over the tropical beaches of the world, now they are moving in on the cities.

              Actually most entitlement is due to the Chinese and Japanese, they will pay anything and never negotiate, and this has caused bar girls to quote ridiculous prices and even prefer Asian customers. I will give mongering white Boomer pensioners credit for one thing, is that they keep their working girl prices on a tight leash and will not budge. Theyre on a fixed income thats susceptible to exchange rates, and so they gatekeep the prices of old with an iron fist

    Is Korea a good place to live for a few years as an isolated writer or a bad place to live? The lifestyle involves a lot of sitting around at home by yourself and going for strolls at random times of day. It’s not easy to have a normal life, let alone a social life. Would Korea be particularly bad? Seems like a lonely society like Japan…

      Koreans are significantly more social than the Japanese but they are just as conformist. Unless you hang around some hipster area, you'll have a hard time meeting people if you have an unconventional lifestyle.

        I mean, America is a pretty good place to sit at home and focus on work because you can get a big place somewhere in Appalachia or something. If you’re not going to have any social life, what’s the difference between West Virginia, New York City, and Seoul? Just convenience I guess. Gotta brew your own coffee in West Virginia.

      you could do that comfortably with the caveat being how convenient it would be to get to a supermarket for food. i lived like that for a few months in a few different locations in korea. one place was a 20 minute walk to the supermarket or into town to go to a restaurant or whatever. another was just a quick bus ride. there were convenience stores closer and the workers there would acknowledge me as someone they recognised. a couple spoke english so we had conversations. people would recognise me as i went to the same restaurants each week. there was never any negative reactions or animosity towards me. i think they just thought it odd a westerner would be in that place for longer than a fleeting vacation.

    That's cool. My experience getting permits to stay has always been more work than it's worth, but that's just me. The paperwork seems endless and getting shit notarized and translated and there's always some due-diligence butthole who sticks you with something else in the end. As a long time digital nomad, I find it much easier to move between 2 or 3 countries in a region and just live off the 90 days stay rule. The 3rd country is just a buffer stop off so you don't overstay in either of your 2 primary choices.
