Estimated Travel Expense for an 8-Days trip in Seoul

Standard

I’ll share my travel expense during my 8-days trip to South Korea. Food and transportation can be expensive, but if you can find a way to lessen your expense, that would be great. There are pros and cons when it comes to your expenses in traveling to Seoul in particular, like for food, I find their food quite expensive, for a street foods you have to at least shell out 2,000 to 5,000 (80 to 100 pesos) and for a regular meal, it would cost you around 8,000 to 10,000 won per head that’s like 300 – 400 pesos in Philippine money. But in terms of tourist spots and shopping there are a lot of discount coupon that you can use, you just have to check for promos in KTO and VKTO site, that’s where I got my discount coupon for the theme park and other tourist spots.

I also got to save 1 night stay at Gstay Residence, when I joined one of their sponsored contest for Facebook (lucky me!). hehehe! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

So below is my estimated travel expense on my 8 days trip in Seoul, with less than 30,000php, I have already toured some of the most notable tourist spot in Seoul and Gyeonggido. This also includes “pasalubong” for the family and a little shopping for myself. This does not include my plane ticket, but I got a good deal with the ticket to Korea, for only 2,300php (MNL-INC-MNL) with additional baggage included. ΓΌΓΌΓΌ
