Filipino Budget Trip to Korea

I’ve been asked many times, “How much should be the budget in trip to Korea?” Since I live here, I don’t spend money for flight tickets and accommodations. I only spend money for food, transportation, and entrance fees. Good thing, I have a lot of friends who visited Korea. Here are the breakdown of their expenses in their trip to Korea:
