Pics or it didn’t happen, amiright? Posting your amazing selfie in exotic locations is a pretty integral part to any holiday these days. More importantly, Google Maps is a travellers best friend when you’re frequently exploring new corners of the globe. So having a chunk of data to use is very useful, and buying a local sim card when you land is a good way to avoid the huge shocker of a bill from data roaming charges.

There are of course other options, like a good roaming plan, or renting the internet device, or relying on your hotel WiFi or hunting down free WiFi spots in the city. But for all who prefer the reliability of a local SIM card, you get constant good connectivity and peace of mind that you have enough data to last the trip.

We’ve picked out some of the best sim cards to get when you travel in different cities. This one is for South Korea.
