HOW MANY DAYS TO STAY IN KOREA?


The length of your vacation in Korea depends on the activities you want to do, and the tourist spots and attractions you want to visit in South Korea. For first timers, 6 days and 5 nights are enough to enjoy Seoul and the attractions located in nearby cities such as Everland and Nami Island. But if you have a limited time and budget or just going for a re-visit, a 3-day / 2-night trip to Korea is also quite good.

TRAVEL TIPS AND ESSENTIALS:


  • If you have limited time (let's say 3 days and 2 nights only) and you want to maximize you time in Seoul, I highly recommend that you take the early morning flight from Manila and late night flight from Seoul. This will allow you to have full days on your first and last days in Seoul. CLICK HERE TO SEARCH FOR CHEAP FLIGHTS TO SEOUL, KOREA.
  • When booking for a hotel in Seoul, you may consider areas such as Myeong-dong and Jongno. These places are best for this itineraries. CLICK HERE TO SEARCH FOR HOTELS AND HOSTELS IN SEOUL.
  • To save on travel expenses, I highly suggest that you join group tours - especially for trips outside Seoul such as Nami Island and Petit France, Everland, and DMZ Tour.
  • Use a Discover Seoul Pass to enjoy discounted rates, and an all-access tour to the top destinations, shrines, palaces, temples, and tourist spots in Seoul. You may read my review on the Discover Seoul Pass HERE. It can also be used as T-Money Card that you can top up and use when taking the trains and buses in Seoul.
