Seoul, South Korea - 5 Days / 4 Nights Itinerary

I went to visit Seoul in South Korea last November 3-8, 2012.


The whole city was enveloped in vivid colors of red, orange, and yellow. I can say that autumn here is a sight to behold. With so many trees scattered around the city, you are literally showered with falling leaves on almost every street corner.


I better stop talking about the season now. Let’s head on to my travel plan.

Thinking that I have a lot of time on my hands, I listed down a lot of places to visit during this trip. Reality soon took over and that mindset vanished into thin air. Apparently, I only managed to go to about 3 places per day in order to not involve too much rushing.

Another thing, my flight arrived in Incheon International Airport late at night so I didn’t bother making any plans for my first night there. With that, I can say that this trip lasted for 5 Days and 4 Nights.
So, I’ll list down below what my actual itinerary ended up like.

Browsing at Namdaemun Market
Lunch at Saboten within Shinsegae
Strolling around Euljiro and City Hall
Dinner and nightlife at Myeongdong

Day 2:
Quick Lunch at Subway

Day 3:

Day 4:
