expenses in Korea.

most people are concern about how much money do you need to travel to korea.
lemme tell ya!

last time i went to korea, it was a totally budget travel.
i spent around rm2000. including flight tics and hostel fees,and gifts for family n friends!

1st, get the cheapest flight tickets.
airasia offers the cheapest dude!
i got rm632 back n fro tics for Seoul.shld be the cheapest amongst all for now.
that's for the basics. 
u may pay extra for meals, extra for special seat and blablabla if u want.
me,since i was on budget, pretend that im sleeping when people beside me are eating. 
that saved my stomach.hahah
always check airasia website.
take note when will they hv promotions on the tics.
usually, 9 @ 6 months before the flight, they will hv the promotion.
(i planned for June, so i checked on September prev year's promotion)
keep on eye on the starting date.
on the date,get yrself on9 and book the tics. 
don't wait for tomorrow bcoz the price can be bombing up overnight.
p/s-make sure u hv yr maybank2u enough money for transactions. 
(problem happened to me when i was booking. no transaction coz maybank was undergoing system checking at the time)
 so mke yr book 1st, payment can be make later.

2nd. survey for basic accommodation in Seoul.
most muslims loves to stay around Itaewon,
 it's like Malay street i would say.with mamak restaurants on yr both left n right along the street.hahah.
but i stayed at Jongno area. coz it offered the cheapest among most 2-person accommodations there.
since it's cheap, don't expect wide and spacious room. it probably just as big as yr home's toilet.
mine was. T_T. but i still can sleep n change clothes. isn't that enough?.. =)
i spent around rm300 for the 7nights 8days stay.

in total. i spent rm932 for both main important things.
well, if i failed to get the money i needed on time,
at least i will still able to stay at the airport for 7days until my next flight isn't it?LOL.
3rd.  transportation.
i think i need another post for this title.
it cost me half of my 1000 left.

4th. souvenirs.
also another post.
budget travelling only made me buy limited-ly for family and close friends.

anyway, don't worry about bringing lesser money.
my friend brought rm1500 (500 lesser than mine) and she actually brought back rm200 home.
