Introducing a new Seoul travel app – and win a copy for you and a friend!!

Presenting the Seoul Taxi Guide, the newest app to help you travel around Seoul and the nearby area. Produced by Hoodhot Travel and with content written by yours truly, there’s information on thousands of attractions, bars, restaurants, hotels, and plenty more. Keep reading for a chance to win a free copy for you and a friend!

Note that the screenshots come from my iPad – use your iPhone for all the location services. All information is inside the app – no roaming or data connection required.

The taxi card – perfect if you can’t speak / read Korean and can’t tell the taxi driver where to go. Even if you don’t take the taxi, the reviews and information on thousands of places will likely replace your guidebook while traveling Seoul.

Did I mention the reviews?
