#Using The Lodging Facilities
Korea uses 220 voltage. If your country uses a voltage other than that, bring a voltage
converter. Some guest houses require you to take off your shoes before entering the house or do not provide towels, so be sure to check in advance. Usually, Korean guest houses do not have beds, so you may have to sleep on the floor on a mat and blanket, or they do not have dining tables, so you may have to eat your meal on a squatting desk.
