Solo traveling is easy, cheap and challenging. I can not share my expenses during this trip, but I can guarantee you can cut 60% on your budget compared to travelling with travel agent. Check on my details.


Document required:
1. Passport, make sure that its valid more than six months after departure in Japan (check here for online passport registration).

2. Visa, issued by the representative consulate in Jakarta (find here).

3. ID card from your home country.


Gadget required:

1. Smartphone

2. Local sim card, for internet connection.

3. Installed Offline digital map of South Korea if you don’t want to have more SIM card and (or) just in case our international roaming is not working.

4. Smartphone camera is enough, everything in South Korea is CUTEEEE….

5. Installed Google translate.

6. Digital compass for qibla



Trick and tips:

1. Registering international roaming for internet service from Indonesia gsm card is NOT RECOMMENDED (I had a difficult time with XL, t-sel or even i-sat at that time).

2. Make sure that you have a ‘healthy’ checking account. There is no minimum requirement, but still, at least its in sufficient amount.

3. Be an aggressive promo ticket hunter (check here for the recommended airways).

4. Not so many free wiFI.

5. The civil servant is sooooooo…NOT helpful. You better ask people around you, BUT the civil servant.

6. Bring your survival kit (mine: tolak angin and minyak angin).

7. Instant food in convenience store is quite cheap. Bringing bon cabe even better.

8. Long john and winter jacket is a must. I almost die freezing when it reached -9dc.

9. Bring along gloves, ear cover, and shawl.
