    I'm headed there on Thursday and staying through Sunday for a wedding. I leave on Wednesday of the following week.

    Would you advice a trip to:
    - DMZ
    - Busan
    - Gyeongiu
    - something else?

    Thanks!

    Tell us what you're looking for...

    if you're looking to stay in Seoul and you're not wanting to do a mix... you really can't beat Seoul

    Here's my experience:
    Would you advice a trip to:
    - DMZ: It's ok. Don't expect to see Kim Jong Eun or cross the border... it's pretty much: you stare at NK and how clear the water is between the borders

    - Busan: Honestly, I would avoid this area... It's "ok." At best, it's a poor man's Seoul.

    - Gyeongiu: lots of old korea. if you're interested in korean culture, then this is where you should go.
    - something else?

    3 days in Hong Kong would be nice - fly Sunday return Wed. Could also do Beijing, Shanghai, Guilin, or Tokyo instead, though PRC visa can be pricey.

    I'd just stay in Seoul the entire time. Maybe a side trip to Jeju-do but it's going to be hot.

    If traveling alone, I would try to snag as much plastic snatch as I could.
