Korea Travel Guide : 6 Days in Seoul and Busan Itinerary

Korea Travel Guide

South Korea is one of my dream destinations. This year – 2019 is the time to unlock that dream of mine. It took us 6 months of planning before we finally go on with this trip. It was June of last year when we (me, my sister and our friend Anne) both agreed to go on a 6 days and 5 nights winter trip in SorKor. We started to plan early because we wanted the trip to be organized – making the most out of the time we will spend there. Plus,as much as possible we wanted it to be a budget friendly.

VISA APPLICATION:

ACCOMMODATION:

We booked our accommodations through Airbnb considering it’s price and location.
BUSAN : We stayed at Yeonje-gu, Busan, South Korea though Airbnb. Then look for Geonhee guesthouse.
SEOUL: 46 Samil-daero 32-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul 110-340, South Korea Then look for Meiyu – the host.

You can also book a hotel using AGODA. What I like about them is that they have cancellation period. I also recommend, hotels in Myeong-dong because this area is pretty much you can find anything you like and it’s easy to go around Seoul from here. The area is very accessible.

TRANSPORTATION:

MTR is one of the main transportation in Korea. We bought T-Money Card for 3,000 won each in 7eleven inside Incheon Airport. We loaded it for 50,000 won.

EXPENSES(per pax):

Round-trip Plane Ticket via Cebu Pacific – Php 5,637
Travel Tax – Php 1, 620
T- Money – Php 142 (3,000 won)
T-Money Load – Php 2,216 (50,000 won)
Busan Accommodation – Php 862.94 for 2 Nights
Seoul Accomodation – Php 2340 for 4 Nights
Klook (Vivaldi Ski Resort – Nami Island and Petite France) – Php 2,100
Hanbook Rental – Php 445 (10,000 won)
N Seoul Roud-trip Cable Car – Php 346 (7,800 won)
Airport Express – Php 350 (7,900 won)

Prices might change by the time you visit Korea but what I suggest is that, pay for your accommodation and tours months before your travel so that you’ll only think of other expenses/pocket money once you’re there. Klook.com

Tips:
– I didn’t indicate directions on how to go to the places we’ve been to. That is because we rely mostly in Google Map. All you need to do is to indicate your current place and the place you are going to, then it will give you the direction you need. Including bus number, MTR, street and estimated time of travel.
– If you’re in a budget travel like us, you can bring a water with you always since it’s free from the hotel.
– Don’t afraid to ask, Koreans are very much willing to help even if they can’t fully understand English.
-Wear comfortable footwear. Their subways are really big. Transferring from one line to another can be a bit far.

This is how we spent our time in Seoul Korea. We had so much fun.
