Self-Drive Journey in Jeju Island (Day2-1) – Southern Part of Jeju Island

Pit-Stop 2.1 : Jusangjeolli Cliff (Daepo)

2663, Jungmun-dong, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do
제주 서귀포시 중문동 2663

This cliff is the Jisatgae Coast along with the imposing stone pillars, where the Jusangjeolli are stone pillars piled up along the coast and a designated cultural monument of Jejudo Island. These Jusangjeolli are formed from the lava where Mt.Hallasan erupted into the sea of Jungmun thousand years ago.
Over at this 20m(ht) cliff, it’s consider one a popular tourist spot for high tide and sea angling views. The waves of the high tides crashing into the side of the cliff provide a breathtaking scenery of the ocean surrounding those lava pillars.

Spotted one of the Haenyo Diver Woman after her catch for the day.

There are mobile stalls selling the fresh seafood that were caught by the Haenyo Women along the way too!
Raw seafood, any takers?

Pit-Stop 2.2 : Cheonjiyon Waterfalls

666-7, Cheonji-dong, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do 666-7
제주 서귀포시 천지동 666-7

The word Cheonjiyeon in korean means “God’s pond,” derives its name from the legend that the seven fairies serving the King of Heaven came down to the pond on stairs of cloud and bathed in its clean waters. While walking along the subtropical path towards the Cheonjiyeon Falls, one will be able to hear the magnificent sound of waterfalls.
The clear and deep water of Cheonjiyeon Falls is designated as natural monument No. 27 and is renowned as a habitat for Mutae eels (natural monument No. 258). Also, the annual Seven Fairies Festival is held every May. (cr: KTO)

Crossing that long ‘fairy’ bridge

The greens that gives comfort to our eyes

Cheonjiyeon Waterfall, here we go!

Mid way through the woods..


While walking back to the car park, we saw something really cute and sweet.

Awwww. The ahjumma was really shy and blushing while ahjussi suddenly requested to “piggyback” her for a photo. o(^_^)o

Driving along Olle Trail No. 7 route, we passed by one of the construction sites that were building a resort-style hotel along

Apparently this resort happens to be one of the properties of Fraser Hospitality and it will be having it’s opening launch near the 2nd half of the year.

Oh! That’s the view of Tiger Island (known as Beomseom) directing opposite the hotel!

Pit-Stop 2.3: Saeseom (Saeyeongyo Bridge)

25, Taepyeong-ro482beon-gil, Seogwipo-si, Jeju Special Self-Governing Province
제주 서귀포시 법환동

Saeyeongyo Bridge is one of the longest pedestrian overpass created in the southern area in Jeju Island. The bridge, inspired by ‘Tewu’ (Jeju’s traditional log boat), was opened in September 2009, and connects Seogwipo Port and Birds Island. This overpas is the first single cable-stayed bridge ever created in Korea; and the bridge has a major tower inspired by the wind and a sail and flamboyant LED lights. (cr: KTO)

Field-trips for students in Korea seems to be so common.

Look at that clear blue ocean… *misses*

Saw this cute little ‘musical’ chair. It will auto start playing the local folk songs once you sit on any area on the bench. I tried on it and YAH! The music was so loud that I  jumped up on the spot. =x

Take a look at what happens to Calvin when he’s in overseas. (tune your volume to the max!)

Addy and one of the passerby couldn’t stop laughing at this cranky guy.

At the same time, this Calvin is seriously a photo-bomb manic. I totally have no chance to take a PROPER photo of the bridge. Look at the gif below. (-.-”
Thanks to Addy, I FINALLY have a proper one after (*&%@#$%^& times of trying..

 Sunset view of Saeyeongyo Bridge

Decided to drop by Suhui Sikdang (수희식당) for Lunch since they are well-known for their Hairtail fish.
444, Jeongbang-dong, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do
제주 서귀포시 정방동 444번지


Spicy Hairtail Fish
This dish may tasted a little spicy to some but I simply love the strong spice in it as it covered off those strong odd fish smell. The fish meat is rather tender and tasted really well with the spice. Guess the only downside for this dish was that there’s too much tiny fish bones in it.

Grilled Mackerel

After having the hearty home-cooked lunch, we’re finally bidding goodbye to the Southern part of Jejudo, heading towards to the East area.

More funny entries coming up! Do keep a lookout during the weekends people! =D
