Budget Travel Part 2

My bike at Nami Island

I started planning in Nov 2010 for my travel to South Korea in Sept 2011. Yeah, it's kinda long for others to plan. For me, its a fun and joy. Getting to know place, is to walk the town. There is no better way to appreciate what you are looking at than with a walking tour. Seoul is eminently walkable. The city centre and most of its attractions worth visiting are all easy to reach on foot.

I went to South Korea with my sister, my best friend and my sister's colleague. We went there for 2 freaking weeks. Here I want to share my itinerary. It's a modified version after the trip. We managed to go all the places listed in the itinerary.
