Travel Theme : Clean

We have visited Korea several times and I consider this country to be one of the cleanest we have travelled in. In fact it is so clean that bus tours are run to some of the toilets in Suwon. The Koreans are proud of the fact that they are immaculate.

“Many developing countries have looked up to Korea as the leader in the development and management of clean public toilets.

Sim, a former mayor of Suwon, started the clean toilet campaign in Suwon in 1995 and formed the Korea Toilet Association two years later to reach out to other parts of Korea.

Public toilets in South Korea are certainly among the best in the world”

Check this post from “The musings and mutterings of a Montreal Madame” for another report, with photos, on the good toilets of South Korea.

Railway stations are also clean, no graffiti.

The Koreans are also proud of their national costume and I loved seeing the young children immaculate in the colourful Hanbok.

Beautiful children in National costume

So this is in response to Ailsa’s theme of “clean. My vote for one of the cleanest tourist destinations I have been to.
