I've never seen a full blown cherry blossom before this. So naturally the first thing I want to do in the morning is to take photos of Cherry Blossoms!
They are literally everywhere around the island!
We shot a bunch of closeups inside the Jeju High School area as well as a park opposite of Jeju International Convention Center, down in Seogwipo.
March - April, 2019
Jeju City, Seogwipo
Korean Won (₩)
Also known as Jeonnong-ro (전농로). This is the only place that I found to have Korean street food along the road.
If you are craving for some tteokbokki, grill meat skewer or fried chicken, this is the place to be.
In Malaysia, the strawberries are darker red in color and is almost always sour.
But not in Jeju. Nooooooo, no, no..
They are big and brightly red in color, taste closer to sweet than sour and oh, so juicy!
Don't forget to try their Hallabong too. You can get samples in almost all their markets that sell fruits.
Tips 1 : Don't get them in the supermarket, prices there are almost double!
Tips 2 : For fruits, do try to haggle if you are not shy! And it is alright to politely decline the offer, walk away and come back later when you have decided on what you want.
I suppose this is a one of the
must visits when it comes to Jeju Island. If you have an hour or two to kill and is looking for a moderatee intensity workout, pay a 2,000 won ($1.68) per adult entrance fee and just go for it!
Going up is not a race, do take your time and becareful of the stone steps as they can be quite slippery when wet. You can find a few resting points with benches along the way.
Parking is free here so if you come for a sightseeing and to hangout at the cafes around here is still a decent idea.
Visitors are not allowed to bring food into the hike. So we reward ourselves with this thirst-quenching drink after we finished the trail.
Hallabong Juice bottles can be found in many
touristy spots, available in many different shapes and sizes, and taste as fresh as eating the fruit itself!
I'm certain this meal was worth the price we paid.
The sizzling rice was really nice, portion is good for one person, and all the
banchan (반찬), including the grill fish you saw on the table are free!
This dish is really something. I've never had a plate of abalones to myself so felt like it cost way more than the price tag.
We didn't order Abalone Porridge here since we have tried one in another restaurant and they taste really bland. Maybe it is just me?
Lucky enough, we managed to enjoy the most satisfying porridge at Udo Island!
