7 Days 6 Nights Vacation – Seoul, South Korea (23-30 April 2017)

Yesterday I just came back from a week vacation in Seoul, South Korea. Just like my Tokyo vacation last year, I will share some of my thoughts and my travelling cost to my reader’s benefits 🙂

I will start with my travelling cost.  My total travelling cost is about RM3,000 and here are the breakdowns:

Main Expenses
Air ticket (including return baggage) RM 714
Accommodation (6 nights) RM 670
Food RM 650
Shopping RM 400
Transportation RM 300
Nanta “Cookin” Live Show RM 116
WIFI modem rental RM 77

I changed for 510,000 Korean Won (KRW), which is equal to about RM 2,000. After the trip, about 150,000 Korean Won remain. We traveled in a group of four. So we booked Airbnb for the whole unit which has 3 rooms.

Temperature for the week range from 8-20 degree Celsius (°C) which is not bad. Better than last year in Tokyo which hit 2°C at night which is freezing cold! My travel buddy David, the main planner, also checked weather forecast to make sure our whole week got not rain. Indeed that weather forecast 10 months ago came true, thankfully!

Main itinerary: Nami Island, Gangnam city bus tour (Lotte World Tower, Floating Islands, Samsung D’light), Gyeongbokgung Palace, Gwangjang market, Insadong, Itaewon, Myeongdong, N Seoul Tower, Namdaemun market, Nanta Cookin Live Performance, War Memorial of Korea and Hongdae (Hongik University Street).

Nami Island – I will post some photos first. Photo caption to be updated soon.
