Annyeonghaseyo Korea: Day 1 in Jeju Island

Date: 21st March 2013

Annyeonghaseyo (Hello)! This is the first post of my Korea travelogue! ^^
As I am running outta time (What a lame excuse!) I'm just gonna make this a warm-up post so pardon the short post ya! 

这次出国不是跟老公而是跟我亲爱的妈咪还有我3个阿姨。。Erm可算是第一次抛下老公独自出国吧!哈哈(还敢说抛下?还敢笑?!)
至于Aden呢,这是第二次妈咪我离开他那么多天。。呜呜。。虽然很enjoy我的韩国游不过我无时无刻都在想Aden呢!(当然还有老公啦!)^^ 

我爸没兴趣join,因为他说3个女人一个墟,5个不就。。。。。哈哈!xD

每次出国的必做!要帮指甲穿上美美的衣服!
A must-do everytime I go oversea, hehe


We arrived at Incheon International Airport at about 6am local time.
This is my mum and I, we looked quite tired don't we?

left-right: my mum, 2nd aunt, 3rd aunt and 4th aunt. Yep, my mum is the eldest ;)
My dad din't join as he was afraid to be the only man in the group, haha xD


We had a plane to catch at 3pm that very same day, it was the plane to Jeju Island. We spent 2 nights there before we flew back to Seoul again.

飞向济州岛的机票!Jeju we're coming!


Here we are at Gimpo Airport, waiting to catch the 3pm flight. Of course we din't spent the whole morning wandering at the airport. Tour guide brought us around Seoul which I'll blog later on.


由于是国内航班所以都是酱自己boarding,哈哈我很三八hor!因为我每次出国都是走boarding lane的,没试过酱自己爬楼梯的。。(Erm Air Asia好像也是酱hor?)
Bye bye Seoul, see you after 2 days! 


Our first destination upon arrival at Jeju was this, Mysterious Road.

到了济州岛的第一站就是这个,神秘之路。
Why is it called Mysterious Road? That's because all vehicles will go up the small slope by itself even with engine off, and even the water on the road will flow upwards, pretty strange huh? Do you know why?
Click HERE for explanation.

好多游客呢!
它看来就是那么短短一条路,没什么特别对吧?其实能够吸引那么多人的原因就是所有车辆(不管大小)只要到了这里,关掉引擎,车子都会自动往斜坡上走!就连路上的水都会往上流哦!很神奇吧?知道为什么吗?答案请按~

Hawker stall nearby

Weather was tolerable here, about 3-4'C

Nice view!

天气还算不错。。


其实这次去韩国我有几个人要谢!(好像拿到金马奖致词酱。。哈哈!=D)要谢谢我哥因为他赞助我团费,要谢谢老公和家公因为他们赞助我零用钱,最后要谢谢家婆和小姑因为她们帮我照顾那化骨龙!<3
我知道我好幸福!Muacks~


Then we traveled on bus to another tourist attraction, along the way I saw several petrol stations like this...
SK is one of the leading petrol company in Korea. Wow SK, I din't know you own such big company there? ^_*


Korea mandarin oranges, so big!

接下来我们来到了龙头岩, 也是很多游客的地方。我们在韩国的一个礼拜遇到最多的就是中国的游客。

2nd destination in Jeju, Yongduam Rock.It's the formation of volcanic rocks which looks like a Dragon head.

跟美人鱼拍照!

太阳还没下山不过这里是冷到。。。。因为是很靠近海边所以那风是超冷啦!
It was very cold here cause it's just next to the sea!

这就是主角!像不像龙头呢?可能是拍照角度问题看不大清楚。。不过我们看现场的的确满像的。
This is the attraction, the so called Dragon Head.

先来个大合照吧!Group photo with my mum and aunties

Too many people so we din't walked down further

Lots of tourists here, especially from China

There're some hawker stalls and a gift shop here too


Later on, we had a warm and nice pot of fish soup dinner before check-in to the hotel.

导游说晚餐吃鲍鱼,害我们还以为有得吃鲍鱼那么爽?!哈哈,原来是另一种鲍鱼啦! ^^

Side dishes are plenty there!


We had a late shopping at one of the subway market before we called it a day.
But I went back empty handed cause the clothes there are not cheap! Really, things in Korea are quite pricey, I shopped the least this time, compared to other trips I went last few years. But still I finished every single Wons I brought there =_=""
Shall talk more about it in the coming posts, and reveal the loots towards the end of the travelogue.



有没有觉得这篇好短?哈哈,只是个热身篇罢了哦!接下来还会有更多的游记啦别担心~
