Jeju Arumdaum Resort – located near Seongsan Ilchulbong (Sunrise Peak)

I was originally only looking for guesthouses near Seongsan Ilchulbong (Sunrise Peak), knowing that we were going to have to wake up super early to go see the sunrise. After  browsing through several websites, we decided to splurge and found this little resort. Our biggest criteria was to have a private room for three girls. […]

Korean BBQ: Samgyupsal and More

When we think of Korean food, most of us will immediately think of Korean Barbeque. That was also the number 1 thing my friends and family told me to try before leaving for Korea. During my trip to South Korea, we went to three different cities; Daejeon, Jeju, and Seoul. In each of these cities we made sure to have barbeque; more specifically samgyupsal (my favorite).

Cheonjiyeon Waterfall, Bridge to Saeseom, Oedolgae Rock

A waterfall, a bridge, and a big rock; all within 5 minutes of each other. These three destinations are almost all next to each other, and if you’re in a time crunch or looking for a place to hike just outside of Seogwipo check out Cheonjiyeon Waterfall, Saeseom Island, and Oedolgae. Cheonjiyeon Waterfall Legend has […]

Wander Around the O’Sulloc Tea Museum

Located a little further away from almost everything towards the west of Jeju Island (in the middle of nowhere) is the O’Sulloc Tea Museum. There were a couple small exhibits near the entrance of the museum and we walked directed into what looks like the main exhibit. It’s a small exhibit of tea cups, tea […]

A Waterfall that Falls to the Ocean: Jeongbang

How many breath taking views can one take-in in one day? Jeongbang Falls is the only waterfall in Asia that falls directly into the ocean. The boulders around near the foot the waterfall also make it possible for visitors to get relatively close. I don’t think you can swim in this area though. This waterfall […]

Wake up at 4am for the Sunrise in Jeju

One of the main reasons we chose to go to Jeju during our two week trip to South Korea was to go see the sunrise from Seongsan Ilchulbong (Sunrise Peak). My sister and I were fans of a famous Korean variety show called “We Got Married” where celebrities pretend they got married. Our favorite couple […]

Manjang-gul Lava Tube

Our flight arrived at 1:30pm, giving us half a day to explore. We ended up going to 1 place, checked into our hotel, and then drove for more than an hour to get to town. When planning our itinerary, we decided to head east first because we wanted to make sure we saw the sunrise. […]

Driving in Jeju

I was inspired by Polkadotyyann’s trip to Jeju Island and decided to plan something similar. Her trip to Jeju covered the whole island, making it an awesome road trip all the way around Jeju. Plus, we have to be 25 years old to rent a car (with out having to pay ridiculously high fees) so […]

My South Korea Itinerary

I found out my friend was getting married in February 2013 and decided that I had to go to Korea to attend her wedding in September 2013. And my planning started there. After months of planning I finally came up with an itinerary for my trip with my sister and my friend. Of course, my […]
