Korea travel diaries- Jeju Island

Hi readers,

This is a post record my Jeju trip with family last year. After we visited Seoul, we managed to visit Jeju for our first time :)

The itinerary is as follow:

We managed to try a chinese style breakfast- porridge, egg and mantou :)


Jeju Island, also known as the "Island of the Gods," is a popular vacation spot for Koreans. As mentioned by the tour guide, it used to be the hotspot for korean to come for Honeymoon!The island's mixture of volcanic rock, frequent rains, and temperate climate, make it very similar to the Hawaiian Islands in the U.S. 

Jeju Do also hard to find many shopping sites similar to Korea.

The first stop we visited Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak!

Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak (182 meters high) was formed from the sea in a series of volcanic eruptions starting since over 100,000 years ago.

The site resembles an old fortress on a coastal cliff and was originally a volcanic island but was later connected as sand and gravel accumulated in between. Super nice view on top of it. But you need to have strong legs and good determination to reach the top. I nearly gave up because of lack of exercise. It is not suitable for senior citizens to climn to the top.

The sunrise seen from the peak is considered one of the most fascinating scenic views in Jeju!

After the climbing and exercise, we proceed to the korean food place. Hot and spicy black pork bbq pot!

Later, we proceed to view a indoor horse riding performance at Pony Valley! I was too sleepy and I fall asleep several times :)

Of course if you in Jeju, you must visit the teddy bear museum!

The Palace teddy Bears- My favourite drama during my college years!!!

Remember to watch the Elvis Presley show at the end of the exhibition :)

Admission Fees

Adult : 7,000 won / Youth : 6,000 won / Child, Senior & Disabled visitors : 5,000 won

Getting there

Bus – Take Airport Limousine Bus & stop at Jungmun Tourist Resort Complex
Of course we went for our dinner again : Seafood steamboat with live Abalone!!

I asked my father to show super exciting emotions LOL
Me with the Jeju Grandpa-Dol hareubangs

They are considered to be gods offering both protection and fertility and were placed outside of gates for protection against demons travelling between realities :)
