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.
There’s not much to do on day 7 since basically our Jeonju trip is kinda free and easy. We woke up late and depart to our breakfast place at 10am. Hehe Check out our kongnamul gukbap breakfast at Waengi.
Cute ain’t it? This is rice and sweet potato crackers. It’s not super sweet. A lil’ bland but yummy.
Beware extra long post…
After accomplishing our cherry blossom mission at Jinhae and visiting some interesting places in Busan, it’s now time we head to another location. This morning we are going to Jeonju. From my investigation before this trip, I found out you can take bus at Busan Central Bus Terminal to Jeonju. However while I was in Seobu Bus Terminal (while buying bus ticket for Jinhae), I found out there is bus to Jeonju too. Seobu Bus Terminal is nearer to my accommodation compared to having to travel to Nopo metro for Busan Central Bus Terminal.
We checked out from Dynamic Guesthouse and reached Seobu Bus Terminal near Sasang metro few minutes before 8am. Managed to buy 9am bus tickets to Jeonju. While at the bus terminal we also topped up our T-money cards.
Our bus tickets from Busan Seobu Bus Terminal to Jeonju @ 17,000 won pax (RM51.00). It’s a jikaeng (직행) bus which goes straight to its destination.
