Breakfast in Shinee Guesthouse~.
Looks very goooood
Bread, Yogurt, egg, tomato, orange juice and dripped coffee*
Well, about sightseeing in Jeju is just for today, so guesthouse manager Shinee gave us advice to go, so I follow it.
First, we took taxi to Bus terminal.
The cost was 3000w(About 3USD).
We took a bus to Udo island.
This is the bus.
We can use T-money card that I bought in Seoul too.
Bus cost was 3000w(About 3USD)
I expected short time riding but I didn’t know Jeju island was such a big!!
From guide book, the island size is 73km East-West, 41km North-South~!!!
So it took 1.5hours to bus stop near ferry port. Very far!!
I bought ferry ticket for 5500w(About 50USD) a each for return.
When we went to ferry terminal after went to Toilet,
Oh no~!!! The ferry just gone-!!!!(>_<)
Have to wait 30min more...so we went to waiting room but the next ferry came in 5 min!
Hey…it looks older than before…but we took~.
Then the ferry got to Udo-island in 15 min~.
But when we got off, there was no information center, no-one speak English or Japanese, so just I showed very small map in brochure in Korean and used body language that how I can go arund the island.
A souvenir shop woman said “The bus!”, so we took the local bus that just was moving.
I had no idea where to go, so I showed the map picture and said I wanna go here.
The bus fee was 1000w(about 1USD) by the way.
Where we go~?? I was thinking but the bus just stopped at next stop and got off.
Here we came.
Oh~, quite good~*
We bought ice cream for 3000w(About 3USD) and took some rest.
But how can I go to next place…?
The bus that I took just before was gone already, instead of that I found pink color bus.
It seems many Korean tourist are taking the pink bus, so I wonder the bus fee is also 1000w?
I got on and asked the fee to driver but he asked me “Chinese?”, so I said “Japanese”, then he said “6000w(About 5.50USD)”.
Hey driver!!! You are trying to cheat me as I’m Japanese!!! I really don’t like that!!!
He was slightly laughing with nasty face, so I got off quickly.
Ummm,,,, shall we walk??
I also found many young people riding on buggy car.
I didn’t find that on the ferry port…
I didn’t realize anything as I got on the bus quickly…
I walked a little bit but there was nothing special, so I asked the fee agin to the other pink bus driver.
He said “5000w(About 4USD) for hop on/off trip”.
Oh~, there was such a bus~.
It means the first nasty driver was scam to me about 1000w more, or 6000w just for 1 ride…
I expected Korean people are similar to Japanese people but there are still this kind of scam people who work on touristic work. Like cloth seller woman in Busan and taxi driver…
I disappointed very much…it’s like a Thailand and China…
In Japan, there are completely no such a scam people who try to cheat foreign tourist in though.
Taxi always have a fee calculate machine, about price we always have price tag and always tell correct price.
I expected too much to Korea… I have to think Korea is still in south east asia.
Anyway, I paid 5000w a each to got on the pink bus.
This is the bus ticket.
There is the price on it, but why the nasty driver said such a small lie!?!?
(I guess if I suspicious the price, he said it’s tax or something though.)
Well, the next stop was beach!
I put jut my feet in the sea, feel so goooood~
I could swim there but next bus was coming, we got on.
The before one was more beautiful.
I got on the bus again to next interesting stop, but when we got on the bus, the driver started to get the ticket!?!?
Why!? I thought it’s a unlimited ticket!! We have gotten on the bus just 3 times!!!
The driver said, next stop is the last, ferry port.
No way~~~~, I didn’t think the Udo-island is such a small island…
What did we do here? Just took some photos…
Actually, it seems there are 2 ferry port in Udo-island, so last stop was different port that I got on first.
But when I asked the place where we were to driver, it seems no special place anymore between 2 ports, so I decided to take the ferry to return Jeju.
I wonder why we came Udo-island for.
For incidentally, the last ferry port was bigger than the first one, I found Buggy rental shop and asked the price though, it was 30000w(About 26USD). Huh, it’s a little it pricey~.
We went back Jeju-island and head to “Song sang illchulubon”, the world nature heritage.
I saw the mountain very close, so I asked how long.
Shop seller said about 20min walk. Ok, we can take taxi for 2500w(About 3USD) too but let’s walking there~!
We were using sun umbrella but the sun is very strong and hot.
I should have taken taxi with mom…
In 20~30min, we got to good view place, whoa~.
There was small rest place, so we sat down there to see the view.
I satisfied seeing this view already… but guidebook said it’s just 30min to crater, so I decided to go up.
Mom got tired, so I let her take a rest at the rest place for an hour.
Well, I go~!
Good road too.
Then I got to bus park for tourist.
I bought entrance ticket for 2000w(About 2USD).
It was very steep steps…
I may fall down by heat stroke…it was good dicision I left mom…
There is no shade, very hard..
I walked up and found rest place~!!
I took a rest there!!
View from the rest place~.
But I was too tired to enjoy the view.
I took a rest about 15min, then I walked up again!
I got to summit~!!!
…but what’s this…?
Is this the crater~!?!?
I expected there is lake or something~!!(>_<)
I didn't need to come here..
Mom was right.
I walked down quickly.
Mom was there, I took the photo from the mountain(LOL)
We took bus for 2000w(About 2USD) a each, then we got off at 万丈窟, Manjangul.
But still 2.5km away to Manjangul, so I took taxi for mom.
Other Korean couple also took same taxi, the taxi driver didn’t use counter meter and said “1000w a each”.
If he used counter meter, it must be 2500w altogether but 4000w.
It’s a kind of scam though, Korean couple didn’t say anything too. Why?
2000w(about 2USD) a each to enter.
Walk walk down…
If you go there, take some jacket!!!
I put towel on my shoulder...
We had to walk 1km under such a cold temperature...(Actually 2km for return.)
It’s like a big tunnel, not so interesting, just walked in the cold temperature…
Long tunnel like man made, it’s not limestone cave but volcano cave.
There were some special shape point but not so interesting…
This is the last point.
Then we walked back in the cold temperature for 1 km…
We took a taxi to go back to bus stop for 2500w(about 2USD)
Then we went back to Jeju city by bus.
Well, I will try black pig pork for dinner!
I fond the place from guide book, the place is for local people and a little bit far from the center.
When we went inside the restaurant, I found 4 Japanese boys were on the table.
I felt bad feeling…
Hey! The guide book said 12000w(about 10USD) for black pork!!!(second one)
And also it’s 17000w(About 15USD) but 15000w by the sticker on the price!!!
What a price up!!!
I suspect the price just for Japanese…
It was same in 三金 in Seoul, when Japanese media introduced the restaurant, they make price up for Japanese tourist I guess…!!
Sigh…, but it’s rain outside, the black pork is local specialty, so I have to eat.
I ordered pork with skin for 13000w(About 12USD) and black pork with skin for 17000w(About 15USD) with beer for 4000w(About 3.50USD).
This is the order.
Well,,,excuse me…the meat has a lot of fat in it…
This is the article of this restaurant by Japanese magazine on the wall.
Hey, it’s very different!!
I asked about it to shop master with pointing the magazine picture on the wall, then she said “it’s a chuck”.
Isn’t it scam??
Sigh=, I wanted to let mom eat good dinner, but I will not come again such a restaurant on the Japanese guide book…
This black pork must have 5 layer by red and white part, but this is not so…
I wonder Korean people doesn’t complain this?
Ah~, I have eaten Korean BBQ for 3 times but Busan one was the best~!!(>_<)
Well, our stomach were filled with many fat, so we went back to guesthouse by walk.
When we went to underground shop street, I found the shop, Etude house, a cosmetic shop.
I found interesting stuff there!
I bought these, pink one and just water proof mascara.
The pink one, the liquid make our eyelash long in 4 weeks.
I wanna try it! XD
The shop gave these stuff for service, vegetable pack and BB cream
We wanted to eat something feel good, because our stomach were full of fat.
I found nice cafe~!!
Wow, looks good~***
We ordered these.
Yogurt ice on shaved ice for 4000w(3.50USD) and ice cream with coffee source for 4500w(4USD).
But wait! There are small tomato on the ice cream~!!!
We went back to guesthouse past 10pm, then I wrote blog in Japanese but it’s already 3am…!?!?
I wrote this blog in English in 2 days.
I'd be so happy if you click these :D
