In addition to private showers, public baths are available at a low cost of 3,500 to 18,000 won for facilities with saunas and rest areas. These baths provide separate facilities for men and women. If you are not accustomed to public nudity, these places are not recommended for you.


Some public restrooms in older facilities have squat toilets; toilets that you do not sit on. However, more modern facilities offer Western-style toilets. Always carry some tissues, as it may not be provided in some restrooms.
