What do I need to know before moving to Daejeon?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Daejeon, they said...

"Daejeon is a city located in the center of South Korea, known for its technological advancements and educational institutions. The city is home to many research institutes, universities, and high-tech businesses, making it a hub for education and technology. The cost of living in Daejeon is lower compared to Seoul, making it an attractive place for expats looking for a more affordable lifestyle. The city has a well-developed public transportation system, including buses and a subway system, making it easy to get around. Daejeon is known for its hot springs and mountains, offering plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities. The city has a vibrant food scene, with many restaurants offering traditional Korean cuisine as well as international options. Daejeon has a relatively small expat community compared to other Korean cities, but there are still plenty of resources and groups available for foreigners. Korean is the official language of Daejeon, and while English is taught in schools, not everyone may be fluent, so learning some basic Korean phrases can be helpful. Healthcare in Daejeon is of a high standard, with many hospitals and clinics available, some of which offer services in English. The city experiences a temperate climate with four distinct seasons, including hot, humid summers and cold, dry winters. Daejeon is considered a safe city with a low crime rate, but it's still important to take standard precautions, especially at night. The city is less crowded and more laid-back than Seoul, offering a more relaxed lifestyle. Daejeon has a rich cultural scene, with many museums, art galleries, and festivals taking place throughout the year. It's important to respect Korean customs and traditions, as the country is deeply rooted in Confucian principles of respect and etiquette. Lastly, it's recommended to have an international driving license if you plan to drive in Daejeon, as the traffic rules may be different from your home country," wrote a member who made the move to Daejeon, Korea.
