Jeju-do

Jan 18
Jeju is an island located just a mere 1.5 hours plane ride from Seoul, South Korea. Jeju has a laid-back vibe as compared to the busy Seoul. Perfect for self-drive travellers, rent a car and visit!

Try Jeju Black Pork BBQ!

Head to the Black Pork Street!

Manjanggul Cave

Be sure to wear a pair of good walking shoes as you descend into the lava cave!

Bijarim Forest

There are lots of good photo spots here in Bijarim Forest. Otherwise, you can also take a short stroll in the forest!

Try grilled abalone!

Try freshly grilled abalone at Myeongjin Jeonbok Abalone Restaurant!

Seogwipo

Seogwipo is the second largest city in Jeju after the Jeju city center. It is located on the southern most side of the island. Here, try the popular 오는정김밥 for its amazing Gimbap. It is so good that it has become so popular with both locals and tourists. As a tip, call them in advance to order your gimbap before going to collect it. Otherwise, head there to order your gimbap, pay, and return for the snack! It is also a take-out only restaurant!

Chasing Waterfalls

Visit the Jeongbang Waterfalls and the Cheongjiyeon Waterfalls. Jeongbang Waterfall is one that falls right out into the sea. To get there, you'll need to go through a little bit of climbing! Cheongjiyeon has three falls and to get to the waterfall, you'll need to also walk through a park. Good walking shoes are a must!

Innis Free and Osulloc Tea Museum

These two museums are located next to each other and it deserves a visit! This place is also possibly the most touristy area so parking can be quite a challenge. If the parking lots in the museum are full, there will be friendly South Koreans ushering you to an open-air carpark right across the museums. 

Do try the Osulloc Green Tea Ice Cream and their Swiss Rolls! At Innisfree, you can also try your hand at making your own soap!

Jeju Love Land

This is an interesting place where you get to walk around in an open-air museum, looking at all the interesting exhibits. It is a great place to take some naughty photos to laugh about when you head back.

Mysterious Road

Because of the uneven ground, this seemingly uphill road is in fact a downhill path. Here, you can switch off your engines and be amused as your car rolls down the road!
