South Korea is most known for technology, popular culture, the recent olympics, and delicious (and spicy) food. But have you ever heart of Jimjilbangs?
Jimjilbangs are large public bath houses that are open 24 hours and are extremely popular with both the locals and tourists. They are often a few floors tall, with one floor dedicated to the traditional ideas of what a bathhouse is – containing showers, saunas, and giant hot tubs filled with different kinds of traditional medicines. But the other floors are unisex and have sleeping quarters, norebangs (karaoke), snack bars and restaurants, TV rooms, exercise rooms, video game rooms, and sauna rooms that contain different temperatures for your enjoyment.
