|Titanic? hihi so cute|
|Awwww Mona Lisa Bear|
|Princess Hours! :)|
We enjoyed our time there and I also spotted Teddy Bear on Princess Hours Korean Drama, so excited! but here I couldn’t find the big one like in Namsan Tower. At the Museum Shop and some spots which somehow I feel like similar like Madame Tussaud but in a different feeling :)
|feel the breeze and fresh air! <333|
|look that column, looks nice!|
Make to another stop not far from there, on my list is Hwanguji Coast located nearby Oedolgae Rock, both are located in same area. This Hwanguji Coast probably not very common destination yet since based on some blogs that I read, people called it in different name, some named it natural swimming pool etc. I also need to write it in Korea, Hwanguji Haeanyeoldugul (황우지해안열두굴), so I can see the map and show it to the driver. Most people know Oedolgae Rocks better than Hwanguji Coast.
Downpour was not going to stop but we already prepared with our raincoat and the driver also provide umbrella, there were 2 umbrella and they let us to borrow it. So we walked out and going to Oedolgae Rock, the rock is not far from the entrance and it’s free to enter. The unique thing from the rock is it stands alone like number one with 20m heigh, apparently this one also one of filming sites of Daejanggeum, we kind of wait the rain in order to stop for a moment while my friend bought Jeju oranges from a lady, small orange but sweet and so delicious.
Rainy didn’t stop us to explore Jeju, from there we walked again to explore and find that Hwanguji Coast which initially our destination. Following the path and seeing beautiful scenery there and yeay rain is slowly stop and we found that Hwanguji, the location is not that common, there was no sign for Hwanguji Coast so I’m just guessing and I am guessing right when I found a place where it mentioned Hwang something and there is a path down through stairs, I went down and yay we found it!
It’s so unique to see that-so-called-Natural-Swimming-Pool, we saw 2 people are swimming there or maybe snorkeling. There were 2 pools, in different color, we didn’t look that closer because we satisfied enough to see from not so far away. In Jeju you will find so many oranges garden which I kinda regret didn’t have a chance to stop somewhere where I can see closer enough, I found there but small ones, actually there were many at there but you need to walk again to that area which is pretty far and need some effort and I choose to end it and heading to our next destination.
|found this small orange tree :D|
The driver asked us if we are hungry already and we said YES! We are starving..since it’s late already for lunch and raining makes us more hunger :p Our driver took us to a Korean restaurant, it was a small restaurant and we ordered Fish, forgot what kind of fish and wow we got a big banchan (Banchan means side dishes in Korean), our meals looks festive and we ate right away and so delicious!
Not only because we were hungry but it’s really delicious :) totally love it and even asked more banchan, haha. We paid KRW 8,000/person which totally worth it and happy.
|sooo delicious!! love it!!|
Let’s heading to our next destination, Jeongbang Falls, another waterfall in Jeju, admission fee KRW 2,000. From entrance you need to get down through stairs, it’s not that far, took about 10-15 minutes to go down. Pretty crowded and it’s just a waterfall I think haha, I have this a lot in my country so not too impressed ;p actually next we have Cheonjiyeon Falls but we decided to skip waterfall and heading to the next place.

It’s really interesting to see and hear his stories, he said his house is getting famous because Daejanggeum took his house for shooting their drama and we were like Wowww daebakk…he sometimes gave a joke and such a well explanation, he has a pet, a black pig, hmm is it considered a pet? But he had it so maybe yeah..at the end of his guide, he invited us to a small room and have a seat there.
He served us with this special tea that he made and have 5 different flavors. Each of us took a sip of that tea and after that he will ask us which one have a sweet taste, or sour taste etc because each taste has different meaning. Like sour means you were exhausted and you need to get a rest so on so on. Amazing, he said this tea is good for your health. He only sell this tea in one size which quite pricey for us. Some people will buy and it’s totally okay if you don’t want to buy. We were very thankful to Ahjussi for welcoming us at his humble house :)
Our last destination for that day was Sangumburi Crater (Sangumburi), admission Fee KRW 5,000 (our driver bought us the ticket, should be KRW 6,000) maybe because I went to Haneul Park already which filled with Eulalia Grass and I found it again in this place but much bigger. Eulalia Grass is everywhere in this place, we spent time longer in this place before heading back to our guesthouse.
In about 40 minutes drive from Sangum Crater, we arrived at our guesthouse around 6pm which is end of schedule of the taxi driver. We went to so many places for that day but we were extremely happy. We stayed at Goodstay Hostel Lyndon, Jeju Downtown Airport area. We choose this guesthouse based on references that I read. And I love this guesthouse :)
We rent a Family Bunk Room (4 people) with bathroom attached, AC, TV, hairdryer, towel, free WIFI and free breakfast etc. We love their service! I love staying in that guesthouse, so clean, neat and homey.
|Our Driver on Jeju Island, thank you ahjussi :)|

Took a shower to relax, and at night we strolled around guesthouse. There were some area where so many shops or restaurant. We went there and wander around there, I even ate Odeng (KRW 500) and another Tteokpokki (KRW 2,500) at that night, it’s delicious but I’m still thinking the one at Hongdae is still the best of all. There we also stop by at cosmetic shop and buy couple things, sometimes the price is lower comparing with Seoul’s shop, it was a good deal and such a lovely day at Jeju.
