Seoul instead of Tokyo

Tokyo may be intoxicating, but it’s pricey, especially if you’re not getting paid to post. That’s why InsideAsia Tours sends its cost-conscious clients to Seoul, which it says is at least 10% cheaper.

The capital of South Korea also boasts cherry blossoms, bullet trains, temples and ski resorts less than an hour away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. With its artsy vibes, RYSE, Autograph Collection (from $200 per night), is the city’s most Insta-worthy hotel. But don’t take behind-the-scenes military checkpoint photos on your DMZ tour unless you want to end up behind bars. And book early; they only allow around 1,000 tourists per day.
