Finally, we reached the last post for my Autumn in Korea trip! Like my Hong Kong trip, I would be sharing with you my South Korea Itinerary. I’ll show you how to do it in 4D3N and how it can be managed under PHP15,000. Yes, that’s right – under PHP15000. This would be a mid-level travel guide – private rooms, private bathrooms, paid attractions, and all that. I would try to be as detailed as I could, and at the bottom of this post, you could get my detailed 5D4N Seoul, South Korea itinerary FOR FREE.
My friend and her family arrived in Seoul on my second day there so I had to change accommodation that’ll fit all of us comfortably. This time, I decided that we try out Airbnb. It definitely helped our decision that there’s a lot of affordable options and we get PHP1000/USD25 discount then. You can also get $40 off your first trip by signing up here. Anyway, we ended up renting this 3 rooms, 2 toilets apartment in Namyeong area for three days. We ended up paying PHP11000 all-in for the entire stay! I think it was pretty reasonable.
I was supposed to Airbnb my way through South Korea, but it’s cheaper to stay in a hostel when there’s just a few of you in a group. There were supposed to be three of us on our first day but one cancelled and then there’s just two left. I was also kind of panicky on where we’ll be staying as it’s just a few weeks until the trip at this point. I scoured through Agoda looking through the affordable hostel options that meet all my requirements, and I ended up with 24 Guest House Seoul Station.
My last day in Seoul is my favorite. We had visited Nami Island, Petite France, and Myeongdong – all while taking our time! Autumn season was just starting but we have a taste of the leaves changing colors and the cool wind. Plus the food trip we had in Myeongdong is definitely one for the book! Ahhh, I just can’t wait to be back in Korea!!! Almost there!!!
Our third day in Seoul is the busiest yet, which is saying a lot. We were ambitious, you see, and trying to fit all the “must-visit” in our short visit. For this day, we were planning to visit Bukchon Hanok Village, Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, and Everland. Four big places in a day? We were just asking for our very tired feet and numerous (mis)adventures in a single day.
