A Korean bathhouse known as a “mo yok tang” was quite an experience. It is a complication of small pools of various temperatures. I paid a little over $3 and walked into the men’s side which is very similar to a locker room except that there were weights and a treadmill. This is the room were you get undressed and I mean completely undressed because in Korean bathhouses you walk around butt ass naked going from pool to pool. Before you hop in the pool you take a quick shower. After the shower I hoped into the warm pool which was about 2 feet deep and 12 feet by 30 feet with a ledge all around it. After about 10 minutes I headed over to the sauna were it was extremely hot. It was all fine and dandy for about 20 minutes until someone came in and decided to stand butt naked with his ass right in front of my face so I decided that it was time to leave. I rinsed off again and hopped into the steam room were I only stayed for a few minutes. After the steam room I jumped into a freezing cold pool which was about 3 feet and swam the length of it and I was done. Overall the experience was a good one but I still would rather wash myself at home.
