Travel Korea | Travel Seoul [7 Day Itinerary]


Traveling to Seoul the 2nd time brings a lot of excitement in me. I’m just so happy that I’m going back!  My last trip was so short I was not able to visit much of Seoul and experience winter sonata in Nami Island.  Yes, in my bucket list, first Nami experience has to be winter. ♥

Anyway, we’ll be coming from Busan in this Seoul itinerary – still not sure if via bus or train.  We’ll be spending 3 days in Busan and 7 days in Seoul.  Soooo excited!

Also check my Busan Itinerary here

I always travel on a budget so I find cheap bookings for tickets and hotels.  I normally book cheap flights with AirAsia or, especially when they have seat sale.  Also, I check out value-for-money accommodations in Agoda or Airbnb.
