Ultimately, your budget will depend on your itinerary, as well as your preferred "accommodation and restos." In her case, Hazel shared: "We actually chose a hotel that's near the subway & right in the middle of busy Hongdae area. I'm sure there are guesthouses/Airbnb that are relatively cheaper than the rates in my previous story."

"Plan ahead of time," she advised. "Our flight was booked just a week before so it's more on the expensive side." 

"I noticed that it's a lot cheaper to travel with friends because you get to share food and drinks," she added. "Usually, there's a minimum order required sa resto nila."
