List Your Trip into Muslim Backpackers Seoul Calendar!

How would you like to meet new friends during your trip? Or get someone to travel that few hundreds kilometers to Mount Sorak with you? Maybe you have finally booked that ticket for your solo travel to Seoul but want to split the fee for a double room so you can get both the privacy and cheaper price for your travel? Perhaps finding someone to split the fee of planning service with? /shameless promotion

You can now do this by listing your trip information into the Muslim Backpackers Seoul Calendar. List and wait for someone to contact you, or browse the calendar and contact someone going at the same time as you.

How does it work?
