Unpredictable sickness and accidents can happen anytime to anybody. Getting sick ins not a great
experience, but it can be even scarier when it happens in other country.
Korea's medical system is well known for its high quality services and reasonable cost, which has made
it one of the healthiest country in the world. However, getting access to healthcare is still considered as one of the top problems faced by expats in Korea due to language barriers and insufficient information. It could be even more worrisome and inconvenient for tourists because they tend to go to international hospitals which are more expensive than local clinics and hospitals. In addition, without the Korean
national insurance, they usually have to pay much than usual to get the same treatment.
