Jeju vacation Day 1

So, for my Summer vacation I  decided to sign up for a trip to Jeju Island with Adventure Korea.


The First Day  was pretty good.   We went to Gimpo Airport  and had a quick flight up and down.   We were only on the plane for about an hour and it was a pretty smooth flight.

Upon arrival we headed for a restaurant to have Black Pork–a famous Jeju island speciality.  It was pretty fatty and mixed with a few vegetables.  It really just amounted to some marinated sam gyup sal.   I was pretty disappointed with it, since it’s really built up as a specialty of  Jeju.

From there we set off for Udo island, the largest of Jeju’s satellite islands.   We went to a few places. The first was a horse farm by Lion Head Rock.   It’s  what you would expect, a rock that looks like a lion head.  From there we headed for a black sand beach to take some pictures. Our final destination was a White sand beach.

It was beautiful and  quite enjoyable.  The sand was a bit weird.  You really sank into it  rather than walking on top of it, it had a kind of snow like quality.  The water however was beautiful and blue and  you instantly  dropped off into very deep water after only a few steps.

From there we went back to the main Jeju island and to a restaurant for dinner.  Unfortunately  it was pretty subpar.   The food was all remarkably unremarkable.  It really was the kind of quality you might expect from a school lunch.

THe last part of the day was checking into the hotel.  It’s really nice.   From there we headed down to a night beach and set off some fireworks.

All told a pretty good first day.
