About the Book

Author Robert Nilsen first ventured to South Korea while serving in the Peace Corps and continued to spend, off and on, around seven years of his life there. With Moon South Korea, Nilsen reveals the many sides of this less-traveled Asian destination, from hiking and skiing in the country’s mountains to exploring the city markets of Seoul, arguably one of the best shopping destinations on the planet. Expert advice is provided on everything from proper communal bathing etiquette to the diverse selections of gimchi, seasoned and fermented vegetable dishes. Whether it’s drinking from the famous Dalgi Mineral Spring on the east coast, biking on scenic Jeju Island, or exploring the Suwon Fortress, Moon South Korea provides travelers with a unique and memorable experience.

About Robert Nilsen
Robert Nilsen was born and raised in Minnesota. His first major excursion from the Midwest was a two-year stint in South Korea with the Peace Corps. Following that eye-opening service, he stayed on in Korea independently, teaching and traveling. Setting his sights on other lands and cultures, he made a two-year trek through Asia before returning home to the United States, and since then has had the good fortune to return to Asia and the Pacific on numerous occasions. Robert has written Moon Handbooks South Korea for Avalon Travel Publishing, and has contributed to Moon Handbooks Indonesia. Since the passing of his good friend J. D. Bisignani, he has shouldered full responsibility for the revision of Moon Handbooks' Hawaii series, including Moon Handbooks Hawaii, Moon Handbooks Kaua‘i, Moon Handbooks O‘ahu, Moon Handbooks Maui, and Moon Handbooks Big Island of Hawai‘i.
