T-money is the new Seoul City traffic card that can be used for both buses and subways. The T-money card can be either prepaid or post-paid (through a credit card). The prepaid card, which can be used only for public transportation, includes the popular-type (1,500 won) and deluxe-type (2,500 won), which uses mileage points accrued from partner companies. The post-paid T-money card, using a credit card, or the prepaid Deluxe Tmoney card will be less useful for foreign tourists. The popular-type T-money card, the most convenient type of T-money for foreign users, will be sold at subway ticket counters from July 1, 2004 and LG25 convenience stores as of July 10, 2004. T-money cards can be recharged easily at any T-money card vender or kiosks for amounts from 1,000 won to 90,000 won. Users departing Seoul can get a refund for any remaining amount on the card (less 1,500 won) at a T-money card vender. By using a T-money card, passengers will enjoy greater discount benefits than with cash. For example, if Mr. A takes five bus or subway rides, for a distance of less than 10 kilometres, he will only pay a base rate of 800 won. If he pays cash, however, that sum would total up to 4,000 won.

New Bus System of Seoul

Seoul Introduces New City Bus System On July 1, 2004, the Seoul Metropolitan Government introduced the newly adjusted public transportation system. Five key points characterize the system overhaul: 1) Bus routes have been simplified; 2) Four different categories of buses have been established; 3) The current fixed-rate bus fare system has been replaced by a differentiated fare scheme based on distance travelled. The subway fare is integrated with the bus fare system. 4) The bus numbers indicate districts in Seoul, which will enable passengers to identify the bus departure point and destination; and 5) The installation of a satellite communications system will enable passenger to check bus arrival times at bus stations or destinations using mobile phones or PDAs.

Feature (5) will have limited convenience for foreigners due to the lack of foreign language support. * A total of 7 Suburban Area Numbers No. 1 2 3 4 City Uijeongbu-si Guri-si Hanam-si Seongnam-si Yangju-si Namyangju-si Gwangju-si Yongin-si Pocheon-si 5 Anyang-si Gwacheon-si Uiwang-si Ansan- si Gunpo-si Suwon-si 6 Incheon Bucheon-si Gimpo-si Gwangmyeong- si Siheung-si 7 Paju-si Goyang-si

Synopsis: Three cooks start their day. While they are busy preparing the vegetables and organizing the kitchen, a bad tempered manager appears. He orders them to prepare the food for a wedding by 6 o'clock in the afternoon. The cooks, who had not been told about this event, are caught completely offguard. Not only that, the manager also brings his young nephew with him and demands that the cooks teach him how to cook and prepare food. The manager exits after barking these seemingly impossible orders. At first, the cooks don't like this clueless boy, but have to get on with their work. They start preparing the food, but things don't go on smoothly. The boy and three cooks get closer, though, and the audience joins the show. The cooks struggle to prepare the dishes as quickly as possible, and manage to set the table by 6pm.The wedding banquet draws to a successful conclusion.

In September and October, long slacks, long-sleeved shirts, and cardigans or jackets are ideal. November feels quite chilly, so a thick jacket is usually needed.
