Where To, In South Korea?

Day 1: On The Planes

Morning flight from Kuala Lumpur to Busan, followed by evening flight from Busan to Jeju. Dinner, check-in, sleep early.

Day 2 & 3: Exploring Jeju Island

Wherever the taxi guide suggests, we would follow (except for caves, cause we've been to 3 caves in Mulu already, and gardens because we have gardens in Malaysia too; Putrajaya Botanical Garden). 

I would like a morning hike up Ilchubong Sunrise Peak to see the sunrise though. Since I've never seen a sunrise before. True story. And hopefully a day spent in Udo Island, since it is highly rated on TripAdvisor.

Oh yes, and the Nanta show too. 

Day 4: Fly To Seoul

Morning flight from Jeju to Gimpo, followed by Namsangol Hanok Village, and shopping at Myeongdong. 

It's not like we will be buying a lot of things either, since the currency exchange rate is high. Food is also not cheap according to a Korean friend. But we'll see, I'll probably come home with a Seoul loot that mainly consists of candy (if they have intriguing ones) and Laneige products.

I also plan on tasting their street food, especially the sweet ones since I'm quite the sweet tooth :)

Day 5: Site-seeing, Pun Intended

I'm hoping to start the day early, so we can grab breakfast and make our way to Changdeokgung Palace & Secret Garden in time for the 11am tour. Before the tour, we will take a walk in Insa-dong and do some souvenir shopping. After that, we head to Cheonggyecheon; it's a long walk so I don't know if we would want to walk from one end to the other. Second to last stop would be Namdaemun, and the final stop for the day would be N Seoul Tower. 

Day 6: A Healthy Goodbye

By healthy I mean waking up early to take a walk in Namsan Park; come back in time to check-out at 11am, have lunch, and then take the subway to catch our 4pm flight back to Kuala Lumpur.

That's the plan so far, which might change, who knows. Might seem short to some as we did skip a few places (eg; the other palaces. Seen one, seen all, right?), but I think it will leave us with enough memories without being taxing on the wallet :)
