BEST application to explore Korea :)

I like KAKAO MAPS much better than Naver maps cause this app shows me every routes and schedules for public transportations, and it’s so easy to share with Kakao talk. Also I am HIGHLY recommend this app to foreigners especially when they’re trying to explore Korea.(And already a lot of them were satisfied with this!)
Long time ago I had a part time job here and saw a lot of ppl work hard to make their service better. Really appreciate it.

Short learning curve, easy to use.

So, feeling like you want to travel around Korea, and not knowing where to go and navigate it?? No problem-o!!! Just use KakaoMap. Granted, you’ll need to grasp Hangul to type in you location, but the learning curve for using KakaoMap is short after you’ve handled the just-as-short Hangul learning curve.
Seoul’s busy subway and bus system? KakaoMap is your best travel buddy!
Wanna go to a different city, but don’t the streets well enough? KakaoMap will help!
These features saved me:
• compass arrow showing where you are.
• compass direction and cone of vision showing you which direction you are pointing toward.
• tapping on the alerts option to ding when your bus is arriving.
• long distances from your location tell you which train to take, where to get off, and which bus or taxi to take.

Thanks Kakao!

I had no issues utilizing this app in Korea. I was able to navigate my way in Seoul and Busan by using this app. Being able to read and type Korean is a plus, as all of the navigation is in Korean. My friends, however, were also able to use this app without knowing the language by tracking their locations and using the maps provided. Overall, great app for traveling through Korea!
