Jeju Island Adventure: Seongsan Ilchubong

After visiting the Manjanggul Cave, we drove for an hour or so to Seongsan Ilchubong, another UNESCO Natural Monument. According to all the travel blogs and guides I read, sunrise and sunset at Seongsan Ilchubong is supposed to look amazing but you need to get there before 7 am KST which means we need to set off from our guesthouse in Jeju City at about … Continue reading Jeju Island Adventure: Seongsan Ilchubong

Jeju Island Adventure: Manjanggul Cave

Among the few natural attractions that I went to on Jeju Island, I like the Manjanggul Cave the best. While it might not look like much, I think it is a super cool place because it used to be where molten hot lava was flowing through. Sorry, Geography geek in me is very excited. #NotSorry XD Also, along the walls of the tunnel, you can … Continue reading Jeju Island Adventure: Manjanggul Cave

Jeju Island Adventure: Dragonhead Rock

We headed over to see the Dragonhead Rock early in the morning before we headed over to the Manjanggul Cave. It was another one of those, “that’s it?” when you see the actual rock. LOL. This rock is apparently a must see when in Jeju Island but I’m not clear as to why and I’m just going to see the rock coz it’s a mandatory/obligatory … Continue reading Jeju Island Adventure: Dragonhead Rock

Jeju Island Adventure: Cheonjiyeon Waterfall

After visiting the Jeongbang Waterfall, we headed over to Cheonjiyeon Waterfall because it was nearby despite the rain. The Cheonjiyeon Waterfall is basically a sequence of 3 waterfalls which are really near to each other. Truth is, I went to take a look at the Cheonjiyeon Waterfall because it was a UNESCO World Heritage site. And like the Jeongbang Waterfall, I looked at it and … Continue reading Jeju Island Adventure: Cheonjiyeon Waterfall

Jeju Island Adventure: Jeongbang Waterfall

Jeongbang Waterfall is supposedly the only waterfall in Asia which falls directly into the ocean so we headed over there as soon as we arrived in Jeju Island. However, luck wasn’t on our side and it was raining when we got there so the view was like “meh”. The waterfall itself was just alright to me. I’ve seen nicer and more majestic waterfalls so I … Continue reading Jeju Island Adventure: Jeongbang Waterfall

Jeju Island Adventure: Seafood Soup

Another must eat in Jeju Island is their seafood; sashimi, soup, bbq, whatever. My Korean colleague was recommending that I try the sea urchin soup but the random restaurant that I walked into along the road leading to the Seongsan Ilchubong didn’t have the sea urchin soup so I went with their seafood soup. OH. MY. GOD. I could SMELL the sweetness of the seafood broth … Continue reading Jeju Island Adventure: Seafood Soup

Jeju Island Adventure: Driving on The Other Side of the Road in Jeju Island

Initially, we wanted to get a guide to take us around Jeju Island for our trip there but there was none available so after much consideration, we decided to go with renting a car to self-drive on Jeju Island. We worked out the Math, it was way cheaper. We rented the Kia Morning, the smallest and cheapest car (like most typical cheapo Singaporeans), from KT Kumho (ENG … Continue reading Jeju Island Adventure: Driving on The Other Side of the Road in Jeju Island
