This page includes more than 400 links, both local content and general information aimed at helping foreigners in Pyeongtaek and the surrounding areas find information they otherwise may not have. In addition, local links are posted to serve the growing foreign community and provide opportunities to connect with others who enjoy the same activities as you do.

Many of these pages, especially on Facebook, are difficult to find yet may be very valuable to people who didn't know they exist. Facebook group owners who wish for their group - especially closed groups - to remain hidden from the public and do not want it to appear on this page can send me an e-mail! Many groups have been omitted from this list to preserve privacy.
