I’m not a fan of massage parlours, spas, water spas, saunas and bathhouses and alike. I’m one of those persons who don’t seem to like being touched by someone else or seeing my physique. I know, I’m skinny and I’m not that assertive about my built. However, when visiting South Korea, going to a Korean public bathhouse is a must try experience. I’ve never been to any of such relaxation area and trying it for the first time in Korea had been, well… a pleasant and fulfilling experience for me.
Korean public bathhouse or what is commonly known, as jjimjilbang is a large and gender-segregated public bathhouse equipped with hot tubs, showers, Korean traditional furnace saunas and massage tables.
