The Love Hotel

Young adults live with their parents until they get married here. Koreans get married at around 30 years old, but it's common to date for 5 or 6 years before that. So where does one go to find a little privacy? The Love Hotel. This country is littered with these cheesy hotels, and they are the best place to stay when you are out of town. Even though the idea of them might seem a little seedy they are very clean, furnished, and affordable. Beth and I have stayed in many of them, and I took some pictures while we were out of town in Busan. We've seen some that varied in quality and cheese factor, and this one excelled in both categories. Unless you find a real dump the room will have a flat panel TV, all the toiletries you'd ever need (and then some), complimentary tea, water, and juice, a jacuzzi, and a queen sized bed.

Sometimes they even have adult vending machines in the halls. I have no idea why it's called "Green Love."
