What is the weather there on first wk of july?

    1. You’re welcome! It’s summer. It’s either hot or raining.

      1. Thanks, in gapyeong tour , is it advisable to buy a tour package of gapyeong tour or it is easy enough (hopefully much cheaper) for first timer to do them all by themselves ?..i really want to visit nami,petite france &monring calm in 1 day

  47. Hi Ms. Karla, im just wondering.. When is the best time para magtravel sa sokor? I mean yung di maraming kasabay na tourist? Wag lang summer dyan.. Hihihi… 😄😁

  48. I love your blog Ms Karla. Thank you for your tips, it makes me more excited to explore Korea this May. ☺️

  49. Hi Karla. We will be going to Seoul with my family and 6 yr old daughter on may 21-28… We are planning to avail of the DMZ tour. on the link that you’ve provided, which of the DmZ package tours will you recommend esp that I will be bringing a kid. Thank you.

  50. Helo Ms Karla
    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?

    1. Subway is the most convenient. It’s autumn that time.

  51. hi. will be there march 28. can we catch some snow on the mountain slopes? thanks.

    1. hi again. are trazys and funko legit? ticket prices are cheap there. thanks.

  52. 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.

  53. […] The experience was fun and painful! I can’t count how many times I fell. I had to endure 3 days body pain. I went to sauna the next day to relax my muscles. I strongly suggest that you put this in the 2nd to the last day of your itinerary. […]

  54. Hi! I just read your itinerary,but I’m having a hard time planning ours. It’s only a 4 day trip and we want to go to a lot of places 🙁 I hope you can help me. We’ll be going this coming April in time for Cherry blossom! 🙂 If you don’t mind I’ll be sending you an email po 🙂

  65. Hi Karla! I happen to stumble upon your blog while checking out DIY itineraries for Seoul. Wondering if you can help me out? My friend and I intend to go to Korea for 5 days, last week of October. Would you know if:

    1. Is Dalkom Guest House a good place to stay in?
    2. I was thinking of getting an arranged tour for Korea, but my friend said that there’s hop on, hop off bus (like in Paris) going around to various tourist spots in seoul. Would you recommend this?
    3. I very much want to go to Nami island. How do we get there from Seoul?

    Thank you so much! 🙂

    1. 1. It think the location is good.
      2. It’s expensive and you can’t control your time. I enjoy DIY.
      3. I made a blog about it. Check out Gapyeong Itinerary. ^^

      1. Hi Ms. Karla,

        Do you have a post in your blog on how to go to different places in Korea by subway?

        Thank you.

      2. 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! 🙂

  66. Hi Karla! Is it possible that we can experience autumn and winter on our 4 days tour in s.korea?

    1. What do you mean? The colorful leaves and snow?

      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?

        1. Hmmm, pwede naman from Seoul to a province. Minsan una magwinter sa province.

        2. I see. Sana pagka punta namin dyan ma experience namin autumn at winter. hehe
