As a lot of Korean TV dramas have taken Jeju Island as a must-have scene, it is always a paradise for holiday of Koreans.
If you are wondering a substantial travel around the island, just set out with me, Teresa and my close friend Szeci. We will give you a relaxing tour!
Flower Sea Fantasy
As the southernmost island in South Korea, Jeju Island is very suitable for the growth of flowers and trees. To experience the most stunning flower sea, the best option is definitely the Camellia Hill in Seogwipo City. With an area of over 6,000 sq. m., the arboretum is home to 6,000 camellia trees of 500 different species from more than 80 countries, which is the largest camellia garden in Asia.
In addition to camellia trees, the arboretum also boasts cherry, rhododendron, lavender, lotus, rose and other plants to let you immerse yourself in the flower world at any time of the year. As is said that hydrangea is the king of summer time, Camellia Hill embodies the densest hydrangeas although they can be seen everywhere on Jeju Island in midsummer. Slowly walk to the greenhouse in the park, you will find many cute decorations in addition to the hydrangeas on the green grass. Don’t forget to take pictures on your way and finally you will see a hydrangea tunnel and a hydrangea wall in front of the greenhouse, which are surely dreamy and romantic.
這裡可點的食品只有海鮮拼盤一款，店員會因應人數而送上代表著濟州島兩大名山：城山日出峰與漢拏山的“ 城山三合 ”或“ 漢拏三合 ”。其後便會以火槍炙燒山峰頂端的鮑魚，從旁看真的有點火山爆發的模樣！當揭開山的模型，章魚、螃蟹與鐵甲蝦等海鮮即呈現眼前，配以鹿尾草與辣炒黑豬肉同吃，完美把濟州獨有的美味三合為一，讓人大快朵頤。
As Jeju Island is surrounded by the sea, it has a wealth of seafood, which is suitable for foodie travellers like us. Red Jeju in Aewol-eup is a sought-after seafood restaurant these days, even the local are amazed by the seafood on the plate.
The restaurant serves only one thing: seafood platter in three sizes, together with lettuce wraps. The volcanic cone-shaped domes right in front of your eyes represent the two famous mountain on Jeju Island: Seongsan Sunrise Peak and Hallasan. An abalone appetizer is flamboyantly seared with the flame of a chef’s torch, resembling a volcanic eruption. The meal consists of seafood such as octopus, crab and shrimp, accompanied by hijiki seaweed and Jeju black pork. The three perfectly present the unique Jeju taste, definitely worth a try.
It is inevitable to mention Jeju haenyeo which is on the UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity while enjoying the seafood here. Haenyeo are women who dive into the deep sea to collect sea treasures. Without any diving equipment, they hold the breath and dive into the cold sea water and work with only one eye mask. Nowadays, the oldest haenyeo on Jeju Island is in her 90s, and the youngest is 53 years old. The village of haenyeo at the foot of Seongsan Sunrise Peak provides the famous haenyeo show as three to four haenyeo with tight-fitting wetsuits jump into the water in the same tempo. The show looks like synchronized swimming which attracts many tourists, and we are truly respectful of the haenyeo.
As its name suggests, Seongsan Sunrise Peak is the best place for viewing the sunrise. Listed as a UNESCO Natural World Heritage site, it is also one of Jeju’s top ten scenic spots. Rose from under the sea in a volcanic eruption, the site is a rare submarine volcano that remains on earth. It looks like a gigantic bowl with a huge crater at the top. The sunrise is magnificent at the peak of more than 180 m. The sun rises slowly from the horizon and the refraction of lights generates a fascinating view. Maybe you cannot climb Hallasan, the highest mountain in South Korea, but you difinitely cannot miss Seongsan Sunrise Peak.
韓國咖啡館的文化風行，從老至少、不分年齡性別，只要一有空就是泡咖啡館坐坐，故漫步街頭總會看到不同風格、不同特色的咖啡館，其中在濟州赫赫有名的莫過於由南韓天團Big Bang隊長權志龍（GD）開設的Cafe Mônsant De Aewol。不過，大家先不要以為這裡高人氣的原因是GD，當您來到之後，便會發覺此咖啡館確實是獨一無二，雖然GD在年初宣布已正式撤資，其人氣依然高企，獨特設計風格、時尚的外觀，加上涯月海邊的自然海景，還是很值得過來一睹風采。
Cafe Mônsant De Aewol樓高兩層，寬敞的空間有大量的落地玻璃窗，讓建築成了凸顯自然的存在，以鏡面玻璃打造外模更讓人看不到室內，完整照射出涯月海邊的美景，隨著每日的光影、天氣而改變出不同色澤，當日我們前往時正下過一場雨，雨後陽光灑下的玻璃咖啡館，與當地環境巧妙融合，真的像一幅自然美景！咖啡館外雖看不到店內，但在店內卻可看到館外一切，坐在店內，點上當地人最推薦的胡蘿蔔蛋糕、綠茶提拉米蘇，喝一口濟州獨有的橘子茶，再看看館外一望無際的景色，真是讓人心醉。
The Unique Cafe
Cafes are so popular in South Korea, you will always run into cafes of different styles on the streets. Cafe Mônsant De Aewol, which was opened by the leader of Korean top group Big Bang, GD, is having a great popularity in Jeju. Of course the fame did not just come from the owner GD, the unique designs and natural seascape also contribute a great part of it. Although GD has made a formal announcement of the divestment at the beginning of the year, the cafe is still attracting numerous customers.
The two-storey cafe has a large space with plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows, which emphasizes the presence of natural landscape. The mirrored glass creates an outer model that makes it impossible to see the interior from the outside. Furthermore, it perfectly fits in the beauty of the seaside of Aewol with the light and shadow changes at different times. Take a seat in the store, order the carrot cake and green tea tiramisu recommended by the locals, drink the citrus tea only available in Jeju, and then take a look at the endless scene outside. What a fascinating enjoyment!
The Top Resorts
Jeju Island gathers a variety of resorts and hotels, but Jeju Shinhwa World Hotels and Resorts, the 2.5-million-square-meter grand premium resort complex, definitely stand out with its themed park, hotels, malls and restaurants. Among the choices we recommend Landing Jeju Shinhwa World Hotels & Resorts. The hotels itself collects plenty of Korean artists’ works and the 615 guest rooms have been equipped with smart control system for temperature and lighting adjustment.
Furthermore, the themed park is just a 5-minute walk away with the cute cartoon character “Larva” awaiting tourists at Larva’s Adventure Village. Oscar’s New World and Rotary Park are also not to be missed. From now till the end of December, there would be an interactive exhibition of Transformers. Apart from the feature areas in the park, many water slides can be seen – they are a part of the newly opened Shinhwa Water Park. Covering an area of 13,000 sq. m., it is the largest water park in Jeju, running all year round.
最鮮嫩美味—— CRAB TONG
前題提過濟州盛產海產，但除了章魚與飽魚等，大家可有發現我們還未品嘗過被譽為“ 海底霸王 ” 的帝王蟹？專吃帝王蟹的餐廳在濟州每走數步便能看到，但想吃得鮮吃得尊貴的，可跟我們一樣，到神話商業美食街的CRAB TONG餐廳。與其他吃帝王蟹的餐廳不同，這裡特設數間私人包廂，且價格合理，只要點上一隻帝王蟹，店家還會送上豐富的小菜，如烤鮑魚、煎餅、海鮮鍋、鮑魚粥與龍蝦等，大大小小的碟子足以擺上滿滿一桌，最後店員甚至把螃蟹黃用來做蟹黃炒飯，真的讓人喜出望外！
The Tender Delicacy – CRAB TONG
Jeju Island is rich in seafood, including octopus and abalone.There is one more we are yet to try – king crab, the dominator under sea. You can see restaurants everywhere selling specifically this kind of crab, but the freshness and high quality are what we are after, so CRAB TONG in Jeju Shinhwa World’s Food Avenue is our destination. Private booths have been set up and the price is reasonable. The king crab comes with several side dishes like fried abalone, pancake, seafood pot and lobster. Fried rice with crab spawn could be a huge surprise in the end!
要數濟州的必吃美食，黑豬肉一定當之無愧，鮮甜的油脂加上大火炙烤後的焦香，讓我們至今仍回味無窮。濟州黑豬是生長於濟州島的特有品種豬，以黑毛、臉小、嘴長為特徵，肉質吃起來比其他豬肉更柔嫩，味道更爽脆，於神話度假區內的YG娛樂小鎮中，就有一間名為“ 三兄弟烤肉 ”的餐廳可品嘗到此人間美味。與島上其他黑豬烤肉店最不一樣的是，餐廳內的黑豬肉在端上桌前會在恆溫控制的房間內先熟成五天，讓肉質風味更增醇厚，配以店內特制的蒜泥芥末醬和花生醬混合同吃，絕對是夢幻組合。
Charcoal-roasted Black Pork – Three Brothers Barbecue
Black pork is a must-taste on Jeju Island. The sweetness together with baked grease lingers in one’s mouth. The black pig here is an exclusive species on Jeju Island with black hairs, small face and long mouth, which has a far more superior taste. Three Brothers Barbecue in YG Entertainment Town is where you can get a bite. Before serving, the pork is aged for 5 days in a room with constant temperature to gain a mellow flavor. It will then be served with 2 types of special sauce of the store: garlic mustard and peanut butter.
New Landmark for Night Life
Jeju Island boasts breathtaking natural landscape, but for visitors who always search for something fun at night may not get used to it. But things have changed since the opening of Shinhwa Resort at the end of last year. Apart from bars, “AC.III.T”, a bowling club designed by GD, is the greatest hit.
Located in YG Town, AC.III.T is a rock-themed bowling club that features a stylish lounge pub. Using bowling as the theme, it would definitely suit young people as well as family visitors. The
exterior resembles a piano also designed by GD. Especially for the exclusive bowling alley private room, the intense industrial style and the colorful graffiti is a favorite of GD. The most appealing part for us is the concept of a bowling bar. Unlike bars in Hong Kong and Macau which play mainly darts, bowling is really like a “never before”. Definitely a new landmark for brand new night life and entertainment on Jeju Island!
