Finally, we get to the highlight of my trip! Jeju is so different from Seoul and I loved it. I could have spent my entire week here and not regretted it. If you’re trying to see as much as you can on limited time though, the best way to go around Jeju is to rent a car. Public transportation is available, but not that frequent. You see a lot if you join a tour group but these are quite expensive. Navigation using a rented car is easy as long as you get a GPS from the rental companies (we used KT Kumho). Google maps also work in a pinch.
We spent 2 full days going around the island’s beautiful coastal areas and waterfalls. It’s an amazing place to visit and I highly recommend it.
Cheonjiyeon – this is the waterfalls closest to Seogwipo city. There’s also a beautiful park you pass through before getting to the falls.
Jeongbang – the first waterfalls I’ve seen that leads directly to the ocean. Fresh seafood and soju are also sold by the fisherfolk near the path.
Cheonjeyeon – there are three cascades in this area. The first was underwhelming (maybe since it wasn’t the rainy season?) so I didn’t take a picture but the other two are shown here. The brightly colored Seonimgyo bridge can also be found here.
Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak – a small volcano jutting out from Jeju. Sunrise views are said to be amazing from here. Too bad it was cloudy when we visited. The women divers of Jeju also put on demonstrations here and serve fresh seafood and soju.
We also visited Loveland (erotic art museum) but I though the pictures might not be appropriate for posting 😀
