AirAsia Philippines Can Take You to Seoul for Less than 10000 Pesos
As you can see, autumn is beautiful, to say the least. But it can be very costly to travel to temperate lands in that season. In Asia, your few options includes Japan, South Korea, and China. Among these, based on my own experience, the cheapest when it comes to overall cost is South Korea. For as low as 15,000 Pesos you can stay there for a day or two (everything excluding airfare). Round trip airfare typically is in the ballpark of 20,000 to 30, 000 Pesos. But it can go really low, like less than 5000 Pesos. But you need to book that about a year before your actual trip. That's what I did for my trip last year. I was able to fly for 5000 Pesos including the baggage.
This time though, since autumn is almost here, Air Asia is offering flights from Manila to Seoul for 4090 Pesos. That plus the corresponding return flight, you may be able to get a total airfare for less than 10000 Pesos. Maybe 15000 Pesos will be a good maximum budget for ticket. So if you have this amount plus another 15000 Pesos, you may book this ticket and start processing you visa. Yes, you need a visa to enter South Korea. But for many, this is easier than you think. Click the link below for the actual process.
This AirAsia promo is open for booking until October 15, 2017 and travel period is until March 31, 2018. If you can't find a suitable ticket for the autumn, another option is Winter and Spring. Both can be beautiful especially the Spring. Don't get me wrong, snow is great but it's too cold. I mean it's too cold! But if you want to try, there may even be more tickets available in the winter time frame, December to January than in Autumn and Spring. Here's a photo of a winter I took in 2014.
