πŸ’™ Reviews / Ideas / Research / Resources πŸ’™

  • TripAdvisor - The reviews and forums are pretty useful.
  • Korea Tourism Board - The suggestions and information is astounding; extremely useful. You should check out their Facebook as well.
  • Visit Seoul - A much simpler site with introductions on Seoul and South Korea. Navigation is a breeze as it is separated into different categories like attractions, planning your trip, dining, accommodation (you can even reserve accommodations though the site).
  • Expedia Travelblog – A global travel resource powered by a community of local experts providing unrivaled local knowledge and deals 
  • Kojects - tries to help keep more people informed of the various  construction and urban development projects around Seoul and the rest of South Korea, focusing on public transport and public infrastructure.
  • From Incheon Airport to Seoul / Myeongdong - The modes of transferring from Incheon Airport to Seoul, more specifically to Myeongdong
  • Interactive Subway Map 

πŸ’˜ Airlines πŸ’˜

The average ticket to Seoul cost about S$900++ and above for direct flights. I am not much of a stop-over person, the faster you can get to your destination, the faster you can start your day. Of course, there is a price to pay for that convenience, but sometimes (if not most of the time) it is worth it.
  • Asiana - Air fares tend to be slight cheaper than Korean Air starting at about S$900. However, the website is only optimized for Internet Explorer so that's not so great for users of other browsers.
  • Korean Air - Good to check out and there might be offers as well.
  • Singapore Airlines - If you have confirmed your flight dates and are pretty sure there will be no changes to those dates, buying the tickets a couple of months before can save you a lot especially if they have special on going promotions. Though the tickets tend to be on the pricier side, it is worth the money for those long international flights. 
  • Domestic Flights to Jeju from Incheon Airport - If you are planning to head to Jeju island from Seoul and wondering how to get there, then this is for you.
  • Expedia - if there are no ongoing promotions, you might want to search for slightly cheaper flights.

  • Trazy: A travel website which offers activities, transport, and discounts for your travels, particularly for South Korea and Thailand. [TravelBytez Trazy Reviews] 
Tip: If you are not yet a member at Klook, you can sign up here, and get $4.30 when you sign up for a new account. If you want to see what promo codes there are for Klook, you can go to Super Saver Mama. However, do note that not all the codes work and it is really all about timing, and trying each code to see if it works. 😊
