What is the weather there on first wk of july?

    Me and my friends are planning to go to korea on November,based on your 7days itinerary what is best transportation we could use? And what is the weather?

  20. hi ms karla, where is the best place to exchange korean currency? can we buy sim card or rent a pocket wi fi or much cheaper if will have a phil roaming sim? thanks for your help

    1. I think that would by Myeongdong. There are lots of currency exchange, I suggest you bring USD instead of PhP. You can buy a sim card or rent a pocket wifi in the airport (if you have a credit card).
      Some people say that their roaming sim takes time to work here and it’s not efficient.

    3. I very much want to go to Nami island. How do we get there from Seoul?

    Thank you so much! 🙂

      1. Thank you for the reply! 🙂

        I am really amazed at your patience in answering all the queries, especially
        that some of them become repetitive. I hope you realize how much help this blog is, especially for those of us who need guidance in our much-awaited Korea adventure. 🙂

        I hope I can meet you there (oct 31-nov 5) please let me know if you will be available. And if there’s anything i can get from here (sans mallet lang at would fit in my backpack) do let me know too! 🙂

      1. nope. the weather there. or is there some place having a winter while in the other part of the place is autumn? or is it general ung weather nila jan pag winter, winter lahat ng lugar?
