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.

In the later months of 2016, news about being able to travel Taiwan visa free (!!!) as long as you fit certain criteria made the rounds in social media. Within a few days, some budget airlines already announced sales going to Taiwan. With no travel plans for 2017 yet, my friends and I decided we are the we-go-where-cheap-plane-tickets-go kind of travelers. So, yes, we booked tickets for Taiwan’s spring season. I mean, really? Cheap tickets + cherry blossoms + NO VISA? Count us in!
Since I just came back from my Taiwan trip a week ago, I decided to create this step-by-step guide on how to be exempted from applying for a tourist visa for Filipinos – but I will also share how to get a visa if you didn’t fit their exemptions criteria below.
Going abroad is exciting. Getting your money changed into the right currency isn’t. Nevertheless, it’s essential you have the necessary spending money available in the local currency. It’s no good turning up in Europe trying to pay with dollars. So get it sorted early and you’ll be on your way to having a seamless, enjoyable trip.
It’s surprisingly easy to get ripped off when changing money. Exchange rates vary depending on where you go (changing up your money at airports is never a great idea) and most banks will add fees if you use your card abroad. You can still get a good deal, though. Pay attention to the following five tips:

Oh, VISAs. The bane of travelers hailing from third world country. Wouldn’t it be better if we just have to show proof of financial standings and a return ticket to visit any country we want? Alas, that is not the case. Applying for a VISA is a tricky business. There’s never a guarantee you’ll have one; people who have hundreds of thousands in the bank and return tickets still get denied. Which is why I was a wreck when it was my turn to apply for a Korean VISA; the first VISA application I’ve ever done.
Fortunately, my VISA was approved. Yey! And so were my companions. I’ve heard Korean VISAs are one of the easiest to get, but I also know of people who got denied one. I figured I’ll start my Korean travel series with a guide on how to get a South Korea Tourist VISA for Filipino employees.

For my first international trip with my friends, Hong Kong turned out to be a hit. As promised, I would be sharing with you my 4D3N Hong Kong Itinerary and how we managed to keep it under PHP20,000. 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 a detailed 4D3N Hong Kong itinerary and cost calculator FOR FREE.
