Annyeonghaseyo Korea: Day 2 in Jeju Island (Part I)

Date: 22nd March 2013

We woke up to a beautiful weather on day 2 in Jeju Island. Temperature was around 2-3'c, quite tolerable except when the wind blows, brrrr....

There's a nice temple just opposite the hotel we stayed

First stop, Seongsan Ilchubong, aka Sunrise Peak, it's located at the east side of Jeju Island.

Here we are! 城山日出峰

We saw a huge group of local students there!

Our first group picture! There're a total 20 of us, not too many I'd say, compared to my previous experience.

到了这里就觉得很冷了!因为是在山上的关系不得不带手套和帽子。哦对了,这对手套和帽子可是陪了我4年呢!^^

Well, the purpose of this visit is to conquer the top of the mountain. Can you see the small roof marked in yellow? That's the target! But due to time constrain, only a few of the tour members conquered that top.

Mummy and I

The surrounding is so nice and beautiful

妈咪和阿姨们因为脚的关系所以不打算继续爬上山。而我就很有义气的陪着她们咯! xD

从半山望下去也是很美耶!当然人潮也很多。。

其实要爬上去也不难因为都有阶梯。。只不过时间的关系所以我也不打算再上了。导游说如果用跑的大概要20分钟。。那如果用爬的不就。。。=_=
加上如果要上山就不能下海了,最后我们决定下海去。。
Actually it's not hard to climb to the top as there're staircases like this. 

In the end we decided to give up climbing and went to the seaside instead 

If only our country has this kind of weather and fresh air!

=)

This mountain is an unusual volcanic cone formation. 

Our decision, went down to the seaside instead

Korea is really a beautiful place, and everywhere is so clean! Even tourist spots and toilets are very clean!

要往后面的海边走咯!

其实这个城山日出峰是世界上最大突出于海岸的火山口!


We walked further down and the local ladies there shown us their freshly caught abalone. All seafood here are caught by the local aunties by diving into the deep sea.
新鲜鲍鱼,是不是很像。。。。。。。:p
Looks familiar to you? *wink wink*

导游请我们吃一碟生鲍鱼。其实要沾酱汁才有味道,因为鲍鱼都是无味的,而且咬下去像在咬塑胶 >.< 没记错的话这碟大概是1万韩币(大概 RM 30, 不过到最后我们还是把钱还给导游啦,毕竟人家都是打工罢了)。这里的海鲜都是海女们亲自下海捕捉的哦!
The tour guide insisted on treating us a plate of raw abalone but we paid him back the money. The raw abalone is tasteless so have to dip with sauces. I ate only 2 pieces because I am not a fan of raw stuff, and am worried my stomach would go uneasy during the trip.

My eye bags are so obvious! *sob sob*

Actually we did not regret for not climbing to the top of the mountain, as the view here is very nice too!

吃完鲍鱼拍完照片就要回集中点咯。。妈咪和阿姨们就慢慢上楼梯而我就趁机运动下。。嘻嘻。。

Actually we are not allowed to sit on the field, so we took this shot very quickly!

Almost time to leave this beautiful place!

Saw a man selling Turkey ice cream and intended to try!

Ice cream time! If I'm not mistaken it's 3000Won (RM 9) per ice cream. Although ice cream is good to have under a hot day but yours truly prefer to eat it on a cold day! =)

On the way to our 2nd destination, we saw a lot of pretty Canola flower fields. 
好美的油菜花哦!只可惜不能下去拍拍照。


Then we were here at Soepjikoji, a movie set for the Korean drama 'All In', did you watch?

来到了韩剧‘大赌注’的拍摄地点

可惜天不作美,竟然下起了细雨!
It started to drizzle so we did not walked further to the church

If you watch the drama, this scene should be familiar, the church and the light house

Then we saw some handsome Harley Davidson bikes nearby


We also visited the Seongeup Folk Village on the same day.

接下来我们到了民俗村

其实这民俗村还有一些居民在住哦

Surprisingly there're still villagers who lives here and speak their own languages

This village is well preserved, and also becomes a famous tourist spot in Jeju


Lunch this day was at a nearby restaurant, and we had this.....

BBQ spicy pork belly, quite nice!
其实这是黑山猪的肉!

Topped with some side dishes which are also yummy!


That's all for today! Stay tuned for more of my Korea trip and also, gift time soon! ^^
