Before visiting South Korea, we weren't quite sure about how cheaply you could travel in the country.
We knew it would likely be much more reasonable than Japan, and assumed it would be much more expensive than South East Asia. Where in the middle it fell, well, we weren't quite sure.
As it turns out, South Korea ended up being quite reasonable overall and we had a stellar time for two weeks for just over $3,000 (excluding airfare, which we paid on points). But for this series, we don't want to just share our own personal spending. Here, we want to look at just how cheap you can get a trip to South Korea while still doing the country justice.
So in this one we will break down traveling in South Korea by spending type and then compare it to how we did on our trip at the end!
Pricing is based on our visit to South Korea in October 2019.
