    Visiting Seoul and want to bring some beer for my friends there. Anyone know the rules on bringing beer on a plane from US to South Korea? I'd be checking my bags of course. Any suggestions of spots in Seoul would be great too(beer or otherwise).
  2. Officially you're only allowed to bring in 1 litre, but it's bollocks. Just recently I got away with 7 bottles. 4 small Chimay sized bottles and three 500ml, that and a lot of snacks and spices. An American aquaintance got through with just as many bottles as I did. I've heard some people get taxed (not much) but I didn't and by almost all accounts people usually don't. I'm sure if you're very polite and look happy to be there they'll let you through without paying a tax fee.
