BUSAN, South Korea -- Last year over dinner, my Kiwi friend and I happened across the topic of eating dog meat – he had eaten it before and said that he enjoyed it. As most westerners tend to shy away from such fare, it took me by surprise. After all, he didn’t look like someone who would eat dog meat.
In Korea, there is no end to what people can see and experience, but trying Korean food is on the top of most visitor to-do lists! So let’s explore some of the dieshes that are sure to impress you with Korea’s true flavor!

If you are new to Korea, you’ll quickly learn that the streets are filled with cars, trucks and motorbikes going every which way. In many places, the pace is fast and hectic. If walking about, you’ll notice that many pedestrian crosswalks do not have a light, so you have to decide when to walk across the street.
