The entrance to look for leaving the subway
These kinds of spas are an integral part of Korean culture, and something every visitor should try to experience. Yes, it’s
pretty daunting at first (in the single gender rooms, everyone is naked) but once you see the Korean’s relaxed attitude
towards nudity, you feel a little silly for having any reservations, and it’s surprising how quickly you become comfortable.
There are also plenty of communal rooms here where everyone is clothed, and we even saw some young girls wearing bikinis when
we went, so if you’re really uncomfortable being naked, you can always cover up this way!
Check out the website (see below) for some nice pictures.

Directions: Seoul, Yongsan Station, line 1, exit 1. Go down the escalator, then turn right and walk for about 250
meters, then cross the street. Look for the big clock - it should be right in front of you.
Alternatively, take subway line 4 to Sinyongsan Station, exit 4, and walk straight for 150 metres (5 mins).
It’s also next to a place called ‘My Wedding Hall Buffet’ (마이 웨딩홀 부페), so look out for that as a landmark.
