Probably one of the hardest things about traveling and living outside of the States is the language barrier. A couple of translator apps might help you out when ordering food in restaurants or reading local news. Unfortunately, we are all aware that there is a limit to what you can do with a translator app. But don’t let the language barrier stop you from enjoying your life in Korea. Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) has a great service to help you overcome the language barrier.

Want to know the location of the nearest shopping malls, hospitals, or grocery stores around you? Have a no idea how to get to a festival or tourist attraction? Don’t worry, KTO’s 1330 Korea Travel Hotline covers it all. Twenty-four hours a day, the 1330 Korea Travel Hotline provides information on attractions, transportation, accommodations, shopping, festivals, events, and more. To connect to the bilingual staff that provides real-time translations, simply dial their main phone number or download the 1330 app that provides useful live chat service.
