6 Days 5 Nights South Korea Itinerary

I have always hated going on tour groups.  Mainly because you have to follow their strict schedule and you can't wander on your own freely.  I am thankful that in this day and age, there are a lot of options for us travelers that can help us create our own itinerary and be free to go wherever we want.

This itinerary is good for those who are going for the first time in South Korea.  It has a balance of both shopping and sightseeing.
