I order my Neutrogena day moisturizer I get from overseas, but The Boots No. 7 stuff is supposed to be pretty good.  There was a study they did years ago with all these products ranging from the cheap Missha type crap to the pricey stuff and overall for bang for your buck No. 7 came out on top.  It was a study commissioned by the good people at Boots but when they came here I picked up the serum, eye cream and night moisturizer. 

I guess I should add a rant in here so it fits the theme, so when I was buying stuff at the Boots in the IFC mall another customer pointed out to me that all of this particular product that was on sale expired in less than a month.  I didn't even know that stuff expired so I use that as the mark of being gay.  Straight guys can use the product but only gays would know it expires.

Hold on, Some middle school boys from my hagwon would like to jump in with a statement here:

Tell your student that he should make a Waygook account: with compelling arguments like those, he'll definitely be able to hold his own against the best of us here!

I think that student would be a nice, hot bowl of oatmeal with mixed tropical fruits, sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon. :o
But I think the real question is: Does the temperature of oatmeal, determine our ranking on waygook.org? :p

100,000 won a day for housing + 50,000 won a day for 3 squares and other amenities. Not THAT bad.

Make it 10mil. Fund a gov hygiene programme. Hand wash stations, anti-spitting propaganda, rubbish bins, street cleaning.
Haven't you got some pictures of birds to be jacking off to, son?

This is going to sound crass, but if you can't afford to spend 100k a night on lodging and 50k a day on food, you probably shouldn't be traveling. If it's for sponsored work, the employer should cover it. Permanent residents, spouses, dependents, citizens, etc. quarantine at home.

You make a good point. It sounds expensive, but............. do you REALLY need to come here? Why? Like you said, if your employer isn't paying for that, then f that.

No, you're not travelling around drinking soju and seeing temples, but it's 150 000 a day for EVERYTHING you need.

This is pure speculation, but I imagine the price went up because Korea is viewed as some sort of global safe haven and facilities are getting maxed out/really full and unwieldy to manage. This is to lessen demand.


Re: RANTING/VENTING MEGATHREAD 3.0

Yeah, like 150K is NOT that much. That's what, $130 USD. Like I would literally refuse to sleep in an NYC hotel that was $130 a night because of health and sanitation concerns.

I just think some people here are so in the mindset of AirBnB, Couchsurfing, and Hostels while eating street food and backpacking that they don't understand how most of the business world travels. $130 is 3 star travel. Low-end 3 star travel and not even 3 star in many places. Generally speaking, if you can't afford to go 3-star, you can't really afford to travel. 2 star is for some sort of half-travel, half-necessity, lugging kids around stuff to visit inlaws or "no frills needed because I'm here for something specific travel". 1 star is for "I' don't care I'm going to be out partying all day and either sleeping in someone else's bed or on the street or nursing a hangover" or emergency travel because someone died or traveling salesman or something.

And as you said, supply and demand. Korea is probably in demand as a "safe" place. Not to mention those that will come are probably getting reimbursed or have the means where 2.1 million is "whatever" money so they can jack up the price. Heck, if the people coming are 90% corporate, jack the rate up to 10 million like Colbrunn said and take that extra revenue and divert it to somewhere else.

I would want a good hotel room for that price with all the room cleaning that comes with it.
