When I went to Jeju Island, I didn’t research for places to go, I just let my feet bring me anywhere. I remember watching the Korean Drama IRIS of Kim Tae Hee and Lee Byung Hun, the tower where he died. I must go there! Luckily, It’s along the way! One of my greatest discoveries is the Sex and Health Museum! Everything you see in this museum is depicts of “SEX”, from statues to photographs, to visual presentation, videos and more! You can also check “LoveLand” While I was in Jeju, my mode of transportation are bus and taxi only. Take note that buses have daily time schedule, and I swear, waiting for buses each time will cost a lot of your time, so better take a taxi if you want to make it. MUSEUM AS ITS BEST
For the second time, I visited South Korea and this time as a solo traveler. I booked my plane ticket a month ago and it costs me around 8500 pesos– back and forth – Manila – Seoul – Manila, June 10, 2011 to June 13, 2011. My reason? I panicked when I saw that Lee Ji Hoon has a musical show called Won Hyo, I am dying to see him in person and watching him perform LIVE, so I grabbed this opportunity. To make this a perfect vacation, I will be going to JEJU Island as well. DAY 1 (Seoul, South Korea) Okay! To start it out, June 09, 2011, I went early to NAIA Terminal 3 for my 1:30 am flight. Few minutes before landing to Incheon International Airport, I was rushing to fill up the immigration paper. When we arrived at airport, I easily passed the immigration. I purchased a bus ticket heading Myeondong and get off at Ibusiness Hotel, from there, I walked till I reached Seoul Backpackers. I got my reservation and just changed clothes. The first place I visited is the ‘Seoul World Cup Stadium’. At world cup stadium, there are also IMAX and mountains […]
Is it also your dream to visit Korea? A home of Korean Dramas – Winter Sonata, Endless Love? Kpop stars – Girls Generation and Superjunior? Stumble upon Bae Yong Jun or Jang Guen Suek while walking on The Street? but you don’t have enough budget to spend? well, I hope my experience would help you in getting to South Korea on a Budget travel – Do IT Yourself. XD It was around January when I purchased my plane ticket to Korea, thanks to Cebupacificair, it’s cheaper than the original price. Considering I don’t have visa yet, and I have never been to other country (I was so nervous that time), I only have my passport! When I went back to Korean Embassy to get the result, I was so nervous!!! I can’t ever start planning my itinerary, since it would be a waste if my Visa will be denied. God is on my side, it was APPROVED! Even other applicants are laughing at me On that day, I started doing my Itinerary. I actually tried to find a cheaper tourist package, since I don’t know anything in Korea, I don’t want to waste time, I wanted to visit many places […]
