Due to its windy condition almost all year round, Jeju Island is also called the Windy Island.
We’ve been stucked at Gimpo Airport for 4 hours as the windy condition has gone really bad to the extend where most flights had to be cancelled/postponed.
It has turned into chaos at domestic airport, people were squeezing each other, all waiting for their turn to be on board.
At last, we’ve arrived at Jeju island!
Since it was quite late, we were happy to find a restaurant nearby the hotel.
Cheap korean food ranging from 3,500 KRW to 5,500 KRW, which is around RM9.50 to RM15.
One thing I like about Korea:
Water is easily available at any water dispenser, either in restaurants, airports or other public venues.
Therefore drink bottle is essential for water refilling, save up the money instead of buying one water bottle, which cost at least 1,000 KRW, around RM3.
Korean side dishes, aka Banchan
Clockwise: Kimchi (fermented vegetables, napa cabbage), tofu, bean sprouts, Kimchi (fermented vegetables), leek, anchovies
Seaweed Rice Roll
Pork Ribs Soup with rice
All of these only cost us 22,000 KRW (RM60) for 6 people.
The motel where we’ve spent 2 nights here.
100,000 KRW for 3 rooms (one 40,000 KRW, two 30,000 KRW), RM45 on average per person.
Mom always wanted to see sakura blossom, though sakura in Korea was white instead of pinkish like those in Japan.
The spring came later than what we’ve expected, so some of the flowers still in their bud.
Mom regretted for not taking the petals back for dry flower processing.
Hired driver cum tour guide for 150,000 KRW (around RM408) for one day tour.
Grilled fish, Mackerel I guess?
If I’ve remembered correctly, this fish was around 8,000 KRW.
But definitely worth it, crispy yet succulent.
Haemul ttukbaegi (Seafood Hot Pot)
with prawns, clams, mussels….
This was my first time eating abalone still in its shell!
This seafood hot pot only cost 11,000 KRW, which is around RM30.
*Happiness of having luxury seafood came in affordable price*
