Hi!! I need some help triyng to make the most of my 2 weeks in Korea, please review it and tell me your opinion:
1.- I arrive at 17:30 so my plan form this half-day is just to move to the domestic airport to fly to Jeju
2.- Jeju, by public transport
4.- Jeju, take a flight to Gyeongju in the afternoon.
6.- gyengju (maybe the yangdon folk village )
7.-Golgulsa Temple stay
10.- Gwangju (kimchi festival)
13.- Seul (DMZ)
14.- Seoul (DMZ+JSA)
I had a pleasure to visit this wonderful country with my Korean-speaking boyfriend in April 2016. We travelled around whole country, seen some amazing places and gained a lot of travel experience!
I made quite a detailed map of our trip together with notes what to see and some tips & tricks.
If anybody plans to go in spring or summer for 2 weeks, I think I could surely recommend my trip plan + it will save you HOURS of internet browsing. Aaaand most importantly - it is tested in practice…
will be in seoul during the new year with some friends, any suggestions on the funnest things to do during the nye? we like to party but we also love the outdoors so don't hesitate to suggest something other than seoul
I'm traveling with 3 other friends from the 24 of December till the 7nth of January to South Korea. I understand the weather is super cold during this period of the year so I'm wondering what places other than Seoul are still cool to see and experience even with the harsh weather. For example, Jeju island? geongju? can we still hike in the national parks?
We just purchased flights with Asiana to Hanoi, Vietnam with a layover in ICN from 5:15am - 4:30pm in May '17. I've been reading that the ICN airport has really good transportation with skytrain into downtown Seoul. Can anyone recommend any things that we can do/see during our layover in Seoul? It is still some time away but we are getting anxious for our trip and would like to start gathering ideas.
Thanks in advance!
I see that July /August is the wet season with on average rain every other day. Now I have flexibility and could hold fire until later but what I am not sure about is the rainy season in S Korea very much like in some of the other parts of SEA and usually a heavy shower lasting 1-2 hours or is it more continuous?
I like walking in the hills and so on and do not mind dodging the showers but not so happy if raining all day.
In many ways July/August is best for me but can play around with dates…
When I travel I look for budget accommodation but I most certainly do not want a dorm
Once upon a time LP was good in this respect but no longer and the problem with Booking . Com and Agoda and the like is trying to find cheap single rooms as the searches by price show the costs for dorms and it is real pain searching for single rooms.
I was wondering what is the cost in Seoul and other big cities of "cheap single" rooms and ditto in the provinces might be. I do not look for much in a hotel…
I want to catch a bus from Seoul Station to the Changuimun Gate, and then hike along the Seoul City Wall over Inwangsan Mtn. back towards Seoul Station. I'm thinking bus 7022 might do the trick.
What bus would people recommend? Anything tricky about it?
Anyone who has done that stretch of the wall have a time estimate for someone in fairly good condition who likes to stop to take photos?
Hi all, I'm visiting Korea for a few weeks next month, arriving October 22. I have 12 nights, and my plan is 5 nights in Seoul, two nights in Sokcho/Mt Seoraksan....and finishing up with two nights in Seoul.
The last part I'm trying to decide on is whether to visit Gyeongju or Andong with my final three nights? I'd rather not travel somewhere for just one night - I prefer to soak a place up a bit more. I had also considered spending two nights in Gyeongju, and one night in the nearby Golgulsa…
I am planning , during my trip, to visit gwangjang market on saturday (night) for food especially ...I was wondering if the timing is ok or is it a peak time so better go there on a week day ?
Thanks in advance for your precious help :)
