4D3N South Korea Itinerary Under PHP15,000

Korea Day 3 Bukchon Hanok Village + Changdeokgung Palace + Gyeongbokgung Palace + Everland; Richel Goes PlacesFinally, 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.

Airbnb Series: South Korea

Korea Airbnb Accomodation; Richel Goes Places

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.

Where We Stayed in Korea: 24 Guesthouse Seoul Station

24 Guesthouse Seoul Station; Richel Goes Places (1)

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.

Korea Day 3: Bukchon Hanok Village + Changdeokgung Palace + Gyeongbokgung Palace + Everland

Korea Day 3 Bukchon Hanok Village + Changdeokgung Palace + Gyeongbokgung Palace + Everland; Richel Goes Places

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.
