Seoul is one of the busiest cities in the world and everything about it excites me. Along with my three girlfriends, Ghie, Xami and Anne, we decided to visit South Korea and explore Seoul and its neighbouring places on a wintry season of December.

Where to stay
We stayed at Seoul Global Hostel in Myeongdong. Sam is really approachable and helpful. They offer free breakfast from 7am to 10am. Just go to their common kitchen which allows you to interact with other guests as well.
There are many guides regarding visa application that can help you if you’re planning to visit SK. Just submit all the required and accurate documents and you’re good to go! For the show money, I suggest that you have at least P10,000/day x (# of days you’ll be staying in Korea).
