Gay Guide Korea-South

Saunas in South Korea have gained in importance in the last few years. Here saunas are known as "Jjimjilbang" or "sweat rooms" and are enjoying increasing popularity, especially due to the fact that men and women are separated in the saunas. The Jjimjilbangs are often multi-storey and multi-media places with a fitness centre, beauty care, snack bar and restaurants, to name only a few of the amenities to be found here. Generally they are open 24hrs, making them a reasonably priced possibility for overnight accommodation, in which one can profit from the extensive entertainment on offer. Cruising is practically a must, although discretion is advised.
