S:AMH – Gangnam
Seoul has been the capital of Korea over 500 years.
The cities in Seoul have been capturing the all the histories of South Korea, and all of livings in the city are the heritages.
My project, S:AMH – Gangnam,
is design a travel pre-study kit designed to offer immersive experiences of the local lifestyle for visitors to Gangnam, Seoul, South Korea under the historical values.
The available resources for travel tips on the internet are limited
Some parts of the trip require knowledge that only locals possess, such as insider tips on how to use certain services or shortcuts.
The research required for travel preparation often takes longer than expected
Preparing a travel plan can be time-consuming. It often requires searching for relevant details across multiple sources, making the process more tedious.
Fully understanding and experiencing the culture of a country is difficult
This is due to the time spent adjusting to the new environment and customs, which can limit the time available for cultural exploration.
