your question is very general. what kind of advise will you like? things to bring? things to watch out for? recommendations for places to stay? what sights to see? with a general question like that, it is difficult for us to help you. maybe you will like to be more specific? if you want recommendations on sights to see or things to do, it will help if you can let us know what is your interests. for eg, you want to shop only or u prefer to see more korean culture or u like the mountains and other nature?

basically 10-14 days is a lot for Korea. You can do many places on top of Seoul and Nami Island. Korea has very good public transport and it is easy to get from one place to another. let us know your interests and we can suggest more places for you to visit.

Hi Wei, thanks for responding.
I was thinking of covering everything in Seoul, plus maybe half a day in Nami, I am considering going to Busan also.
Firstly I like to seek help/advise on getting connected. Best is I can get unto whatsapp when I am traveling around.
Thinking of staying in their ?? also, anyone got any experience?
Or anyone got itinerary to share?
It's more of like a photography n experimental trip for me.
