[TRAVEL] My 6 Days 5 nights SEOUL Itinerary that spend below RM1000 ! ♥


Hi internet!
I know you guys are waiting for my Seoul Korea Itinerary for about 2 months!
I finally get my video done (it's about 13 minuets long) but hope you can feel
the atmosphere of me and my family visiting Seoul during the Christmas! ♥♥

Many people had a misconception about Korea = Expensive trip!
No it's not at all, if you plan it right, Free & Easy Trip is totally low cost!

First, make sure you bookmarked this link or share it on your Facebook.
(So you could find it back easily! =D)
Sit back and relax and I will show you how to travel in Seoul 
below RM1000 
include accommodations.

For air tickets to SEOUL, you can grab it whenever 
having promos.

For Airasia, it could be around RM500-RM800 RETURN TRIP during Promo Period!
So better plan ahead which season you wish to go, once Airasia having limited
PROMO FARES, don't care just buy!

For Malaysia Airlines, it cost about approximately 
RM1500 Return Trip during the Promo Period!
If you have better budget, you may go for Malaysia Airline as 
the flight to Seoul takes up to 7 hours and you have more leg room 
and spacious for a long-haul flight!

Accommodations
I would recommend Airbnb. Not sure do you heard of Airbnb, it is a website for people to list, find, and rent lodging. It has over 1,500,000 listing in 34,000 cities and 190 countries. 
You may google it if you wasn't sure.

I rented an apartment (WHOLE APARTMENT) for just 
RM400 per night(Some low seasons you can get it even lower price) with the friendly English Speaking owner - DADA.



Pretty Nice right with this price. 
In Malaysia, I don't think I get such apartment with this price!
This apartment could fits 6 adults (2 Bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 Kitchen and 1 Living Room)! 
Just do some simple maths. 

If  group of 6:
RM400/6 = RM67


It only cost RM65 per night if you are going to Seoul with your family or bunch of friends!

My Apartment that I rented in Seoul looks like this!
https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/8495788

RM67 x 5 nights= RM335

Of course you may wonder how if I just going in pairs? 
In Airbnb, you may rent an one room apartment and it also cost less than RM200!

Total cost: 
Accommodation RM335 + RM550 (Expenses) + 
Transportation(MRT) RM80 + Visondata Pocket Wifi RM35 = 
RM1000

Of course, you might possibly save more if you want to save on meals, 
as we having most of the meals in the restaurant so is a bit pricey, 
if you save it on meals you eventually can get extra cash for shopping!

And if you would like to shop in Korea, just bring extra cash for the shopping. (Depends what you want to buy) =DD
In Dongdeamun, most of the cosmetic shops will giving you free mask or free samples even you don't buy anything from them. This is one of their marketing strategies to get people get into their stores.

GIVEAWAY

Going to somewhere soon?
I am here giving away 20 Promo codes of GPSmyCity Full-version city walk Apps
worth USD 4.99 at the App Store and Play Store to my dear readers that keep supporting me!



What is GPSmyCity apps Do?
GPSmyCity allows tourists to follow guided city walks without actually joining an organised tour. The walks are self guided, using maps and GPS so that you can follow the route without getting lost. 
As well as the pre-defined tours, the app gives you the opportunity to create custom walks by choosing sights from the map, or by using the search function to find the places you want to visit. And you can track your walks too, creating a personalised itinerary (useful if you want to revisit the places you have found or to share your walk with others). Because it is GPS based the app works best when you are actually in the city, but you can access the walks before you arrive to help you plan your visit.

Best thing is, after you downloaded, when you travel to that city you do not need any data to run the apps!! Good for people that do not purchase data plan during vacation and you still won't get lost!
HOW TO GET THE PROMOCODE?
Just share this at your facebook, Screenshot and message me here will do.
Then tell me which city map that you wish to get, and your phone model (Andriod/ Apple)
I will provide the promo codes by end of the months!

That's all for today! Wishes you Happy Chinese New Year! ♥♥
Huat ahhh =DDD

    1. Hello Rinawati!

      Yes 6 days is fine! You can go to the palace via the subway, it's really convenient, or you could take a taxi too as the fare is not that exp if you are travelling in 4. Nami Island + Petite France you can do it one day! :) Glad that I helped! ^^

  5. Hi, Thanks for your sharing. It's indeed very informative and detail. I will going to Seoul next month, I think is summer season now if I'm not mistaken (hot weather) hihi..! I will be staying in Mye-ongdong central Skypark 3.
    Just want to ask whether do you know is it worth using their sim card or wifi-egg? I read one of the blogger mentioned that the device won't be last whole day need to standby charges. Is it true?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi John,
      Sorry for the late reply and I hope my reply did helps!!
      Pocket Wifi is very useful for me, as for the device, usually the one I ma using able to last till 8-9pm. But I did bring along power bank so I can charge it immediately when the battery is low. As for Korea, it's unlimited data so you don't have to worry about the excessive charges. :)
