We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered...

"My husband relocated to Korea first and chose a location close to subways and shopping - an area called Itaewon. Unfortunately, if I had to do it again, I would not choose this neighborhood. The area is frequented by singles and there are many bars. Not necessarily the best neighborhood for raising children," wrote a member who made the move to Seoul, Korea.
