so here how i plan my backpack trip to south korea.....
1)research

2) itinerary
-i prepared my itinerary based on above blog n link....
-i prepared place to visit ..most of the place was the top tourist spot...
-i choose place to stay and made advance booking.. so my selection based on how easily i can access to the public transport , me to get food n affordable
so i choose one of this hostel in itawon area because at there, they have mosque so i can easily perform my prayer n further more when u stay in the place near to mosque u can easily get access halal food;)for transportation, this hostel located within walking distance to nearest subway station and also located in front of shuttle bus stop to airport, journey to seoul is about 20-30min from hostel... surprising me many Malaysian stayed at this hostel and i also meet a group from malaysia n one guy from singapore....
-after preparing itinerary i studied location of the all tourist attraction ...then i combined together all nearest attraction, for tourist attraction within walking distance i just walked ..so u can save money on transportation


for example :
from hostel i straight go to Gyeongbokgung Palace buy subway, in front of this palace locate ghwamun plaza within walking distance was buckhon hanok village ,Changgyeonggung Palace, insadong ..so i save money by just walk to this place....

3)search about any suppoting matrial
-the many supporting matrial like simple conversation book, maps ...(tourist attraction map,subway map) n also apps by smartphone...

i find many apps about travel in korea but this app help me lot.. since i travel a lot using subway.. it make my life easier...i just need to type in the station i started my journey n my final station and it will show where i need to make transfer from one subway line to other ..good news this app was foc..app "seoul travel mate"


4)prepared backup planning ...
- prepare back up place to visit ...if your original plan cannot be accomplish....

*by doing some ground work about the country u visit u will make sure that your travel become more organize, u fully utilize u time and u can same more money because u will know any alternative n pros n cons when u planned u travel@ vacation...

for example if u done the research u will know there few ways to reach downtown seoul from airport
by taxi with cost u around 30,000 won per car
by bus around 15,000 won
by airport railroad (arex- airport train system only around 4000-6000won

so choice on you??
