From Jeju With Love

Day 7 — 27.02.14

Our first full day on Jeju! And we had no idea how to navigate it…

9am

We wandered the streets for a while looking for breakfast and trying to figure out how to get around the island. Turns out most people hire a taxi for the day (for about $150 AUD) and hit up each popular spot. We thought about doing it, but decided to figure out the bus system instead.

2pm

We eventually made it back to the airport, where we had to get a bus to take us all the way over to the other side of the island. The trip was about an hour, and it put us at the Jusangjeolli Cliffs.

They were amazing! They are volcanic rock formations, really similar to the giants causeway in Ireland, or Mt Scoria in my home town of Biloela! There are only a few places in the world to see rock formations like these, and this one has pounding waves and waterfalls on it, so it’s better…

4pm

We started walking from the cliffs to the other main attraction area nearby, it was a while away so we hailed a taxi… He took us straight there and it cost about $4. We were at the Cheonjiyeon Falls! This place was huge and super cool! There were 3 falls in total (2 of which were actually flowing…) and a really cool bridge.

We did some rock climbing, explored a lot, ate some pineapple… And then Jess wouldn’t let me go to the “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not” nearby.

7pm

It took us a while to get back to our side of the island, but as soon as we were there we decided to go straight to ‘Jeju Love Land’. The story goes, about 40 or so graduate artists from Seoul’s leading art university got together and decided to open a park dedicated to sex and the human body. The entire park was full of statues, sculptures and interactive displays featuring naked people and things… It was hilarious, we even ate boob and boner shaped waffle cake things.

That was the end of a late starting and long day, and it seems that would be the end of daily adventures for a little while. Jess got pretty sick that night so we took a couple of sick days.
