Yours truly

A Seoul vacation with no money crunch. For the budget conscious traveler, Seoul is something of a great value. You don't have to stay in expensive hotels, eat at lavish restaurants, and shop at high street fashion stores here to have a great time. For one thing, Seoul has dozens of fantastic parks and other free attractions to enjoy. Aside these, even Changgyeonggung and other cultural sites are not expensive. For the kids, Children's Grand Park is an inexpensive way to spend a day.
