My First overseas travel on the country which feels like my Second Home =)
Sharing to you my journey way back March 2016 at JEJU Island, South Korea.
Arrival at Jeju International Airport i make sure to get these tour guide booklet and map. Guess what? Its all for FREE! There is a section where they have all the booklets and you just need to get everything you want. Korea is indeed one of the best country.
First meal in Jeju, KOREAN BBQ! Its around 2:00 in the afternoon so its kinda a late lunch and it was so delicious, from its taste authenticity and freshness of banchan (side dishes) that makes me so full and wanted to grab a soju or beer in the early afternoon (just kidding).
First stop, JEJU LoveLand located at 2894-72, Cheonbaengi-ro, Jeju-si, Jeju-do. It is a theme sculpture park where art and eroticism meet in cool, fun, humorous styles. This is the sweetest statue i've seen at Jeju LoveLand while the rest i'll just leave it to you open-minded people.
Food stall across "Mysterious Road" or DOKKAEBI ROAD. Its very interesting and its better to don't talk further about it and leave the rest to you as your turn to experience it yourselves and figure it out why is it called the Mysterious Road =) I love Banana milk and Jeju's famous Mandarin.
Time has passed by and its Dinner time already! SAMGYETANG (Ginseng Chicken Soup) for Dinner. A dish for revitalizing / to re-energize. It is a whole chicken with ginseng, jujubes, pine nuts, chestnuts, garlic, and sticky rice served along with kimchi, kimchi radish cubes and noodles.
Lastly, we checked-in on our hotel. This is our hotel from afar. View from the KOREAN BBQ Restaurant where we had lunch.
