Here are a little something more from my South Korea 2014 travel. Some tips I learned and wanna share here.
1. Where to view cherry blossom during spring in South Korea?
I visited Seoul, Busan, Jinhae, Jeonju and Jeju island during spring for cherry blossom and I can tell you that it’s all about luck. We managed to catch the cherry blossom flowers at its peak in Busan. Whereas in Jinhae, Jeonju and Jeju island they were already past their best. We had the least luck in Seoul.
Where: Dalmaji Road
How we went: At Haeundae subway station, we took a cab to Dalmaji Road. We told the cab driver to bring us to Haewoljeong 해월정 which is the famous pavilion at Dalmaji Road. Cab fee 3,600 won.
Note: I repaired my almost 5 years old laptop. Apparently the culprit is the chipset. Cost me RM310. At least that’s better than getting a new laptop.
So after coming back by bus from Jinhae’s cherry blossom viewing, we proceed right away to Jagalchi Market in Busan. Jagalchi Market (자갈치시장) is a famous seafood market in Busan accessible easily by subway.

Actually I have no plan of visiting Busan. The only reason I made a sleep-over in Busan is because I wanted to visit Jinhae cherry blossom. Jinhae is about 1 hour by bus from Busan. However after having visited some of Busan tourist spots the previous day and today, I kinda fall in love with Busan. 🙂
Today is the day we visited Jinhae.
Morning walk in Busan city to Seomyeon subway.
Today day 4 we packed our bags and head to the airport. We’re leaving Jeju (kinda sad) and yet excited for what’s coming next. We departed from Yilin Pension at 7am and reached KT Kumho at 8.25am.
On the way we pumped the car again since the petrol gauge has gone down a bit. We need to return the car back to KT Kumho in full tank. 3.646 litre for 7,000 won. Haha
