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! 🙂 🙂 🙂

HongKong & Macau Expense

Standard

I just got back from my trip to HongKong and Macau, as always I aim to enjoy traveling without breaking my pockets. I just want to show you that it’s OK to travel as long as you do not over budget and spend wisely. One of the biggest allotment in your budget is your accommodation, just a tip, if you want to save a lot for accommodation, you don’t need to stay on a 5-star hotel especially if you’ll always be outside wandering the city, a decent place will do. Pick a place that is convenient to most tourist spots and be prepared to do a lot of walking. This way you’ll save money from taking bus, train or even taxi.

Here’s my breakdown. I traveled with a friend and we split the expenses between the two of us.
