After two months, finally I got time to share our very own itineraries for 4 days, 5nights trip to South Korea last March 7-11 2012.

Day 1:
-Flight from Singapore/Philippines to Seoul at 2pm.

-Check-in at Eastarjet at 6am. Our flight to Jeju Island is at 7am.
-9am Checkin at Yeha Guesthouse and day tour around Jeju started after we settled our checkin.
-We availed the yeha van taxi tour and Mr Koh was our tour guide. I highly recommend him; very nice service, kind and sweet. See it for yourself.

-Since we're running out of money, Mr Koh allow us to try the very cheap food Kimbap and ahh I forgot sorry.
-After the last attraction, we bid goodbye to Mr Koh at Jeju International Airport.
-Around 8pm we reached Gimpo and took some Korean Ramen before we head to the subway station.
-Around 9pm we reached Anguk station to look for Yoo's home. We got lost but Yoo's home is kind enough to meet us on the streets.

Day 4:
-Breakfast at 6am and at 8am, we left to go to Nami Island.
-At 2pm we left Nami Island and went to visit the foot of the Namsan Tower.
-At night we roamed around Myeongdong and had dinner.

Day 5:
-At 8am we went to Gamnam to take the bus going to Korean Folk Village.
-Due to the harsh winter weather that day, we cancelled our trip to Insadong after we visited the Gyeongbukgong Palace.
-At 6pm, we ended our trip and head back to Incheon International Airport.

I really enjoyed the trip and satisfied that we saw so many places in just a short period of time. Of course it is tiring but it's worth it.
