Korea Spring Trip 2016 (Day 7)

Tuesday, 19 April '16

So today we went to Maeil Olle Market in the morning, they sell a lot of stuff there, from local produce, food, snack, fruits, etc. There are a lot of restaurants too, but I think you will be full just by eating snacks from one stall to another because there are a lot of stalls that sell food here (chicken, seafood, juices, tteokbokki, steamed bun, skewers, odeng, sausages, twist potato, you named it), they also sell fresh seafood, banchans, and if you want to buy Jeju chocolate, hallabong and souvenirs you can find it here.

We bought Black Pork Dumpling (KRW1,000), not really sure though if it's really black pork or not :p and it's more like steamed bun not dumpling and it's tasted just ok. ><

We also bought Omaegi Tteok (6pcs/KRW4,000).

It looks like sh*t because I put it in my backpack for the whole day haha. But it tastes good though.

We only spent half an hour there. While we were on the way to the bus station, we saw a restaurant, and the pictures that plastered all over their window are so tempting that we decided to have our lunch there :P

The restaurant called Sujin Stone Pot Rice (Sujin Dolsot Bap), we ordered their Grilled Mackerel (KRW12,000) and Yeongyang SotBap (nutritious hot stone pot rice/KRW10,000). I really love their grilled mackerel, so good so tasty :9 Yeongyang Sotbap is rice with gingseng, jujubes, chesnuts, pinenuts and black beans, then they mixed it with butter and seasoning sauce.

We then went to Seogwipo Old Intercity Bus Terminal and boarded bus #701 (KRW3,300) to Sunrise Peak/ Seongsan Ilchulbong, but now when I looked at Naver Map it says the bus number is 201 (KRW1,150) and it takes 1hour 48 minutes, to Seongsan Ilchulbong you can get off at Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak Entrance, and no need to worry of getting lost or miss the stop because of language barrier, there's a screen near the driver's seat that shows the bus stops in English, Korean, Mandarin and Japanese.

When you get off, turn right walk 35m, then turn left and walk straight around 140m until you see big Innisfree building on your left, the entrance is beside the building, turn right and follow the road.

From the bus stop it takes around 6 minutes (300m), and if you want to hike up to the peak, it takes around 30 minutes, depending on your speed and rest time hahah. We took a lot of pictures and several breaks along the way and it took us 35 minutes to reached the peak. I've never gone hiking before, so I was a bit worried whether we will make it to the top or not, especially my mom. But it turns out, the hike up was quite ok, except the many stairs that we need to climbed, which most of them are stairs lol that's why we were so out of breath and the first thing we did when we had reach the peak was sitting down. But the views were beautiful though so it was worth the climbed up.

There's an entrance fee of KRW2,000 to Seongsan Ilchulbong. We also bought a Hallabong Ice Cream (KRW4,000) near the car park.

We then went to Hanseong Restaurant to try their Abalone Porridge/ Jeonbok-juk (전복죽/KRW15,000). I didn't try it since I don't like abalone :p

Our next destination: Seopjikoji 

From Seongsan Ilchulbong to Seopjikoji you can take bus #295 to Seopjikoji Bus Stop (Seopjikoji Jeongryujang/KRW1,200 now KRW1,150), it takes around 14 minutes, but then you need to walk 1,95km/29minutes to Seopjikoji or you can also grab a cab there and it takes around 5 minutes. What we did was order a cab from KakaoTaxi, which cost us KRW4,000. Thanks God, I didn't walk from the bus stop, it's really far :')

Seopjikoji was a filming location of several Korean dramas, such as All In (2003) which starred Lee Byung Hyun and Song Hye Kyo. Besides the house, there's also a lighthouse. You can just strolled around and enjoy the beautiful scenery :)

We spent almost 2 hours there, we then ordered a taxi again from KakaoTaxi to a bus stop to Seogwipo. It cost KRW4,300 for the taxi and KRW3,300 for the bus to Seogwipo.

We then asked for more recommendation on where to eat for dinner from our Guesthouse and we ended up at UngDam Sikdang (웅담식당), which is near our Guesthouse (2mins/110m).

They don't have english signage but they got english menu and they only have 2 menu hahaha Jeju Pork Belly/ Ogyeopsal (200gr/KRW14,000) and Fried Rice/Bokkeumbap (KRW2,000). We ordered 2 portions of Pork Belly and Fried Rice. It was a good meal to end the day :)
