After visited Seongsan Ilchulbong Sunrise Peak we head to second destination Seongeup Folk Village. Before that we stopped by a mandarin orange farm and bought some local chocolate and biscuits.

Seriously, we can have Starbucks all day

We are allowed to self pick mandarin oranges. I didn't know Korea also export mandarin oranges. It taste quite good tho.

We reached Seongeup Folk Village. This is the place where we can meet real Jeju local people who still live behind stone courtyard walls in thatched roof rock homes.

They pet rare black pig in the village and was feed with human poo (those days of course)

The famous "Tai Cheong Kam" was filmed here before.

The lady in green winter clothes married to the local here and shared with us the living culture and history of Jeju.

After that it's lunch time!!!!

And we're served with "Black Pig"

It taste a little bit different compare to the normal pork but it's good *thumb up*

Unlimited pork and unlimited rice. Eat till need to loosen by belt. Hahaha!

After the wonderful meal, we went to Jeju Glass Castle.

The entrance fee is as per below;

Everything here are made of colourful glasses

Day 2 - Seongsan Ilchulbong Sunrise Peak

Posted by Anonymous |

On my second day in Jeju Island, we visited Seongsan Ilchulbong Sunrise Peak natural surroundings of one of 360 parasitic volcanoes, which is the world's biggest crater at seacoast. Seongsan Ilchulbong was also listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Behind is the volcanoes hill

Admission fees is 2,000 WON (about RM6) for adult and 1,000 WON (about RM3) for elderly and children.

The trek takes about 25 minutes to reach to the top hill.

Us with Seongsan Ilchulbong

Jeju Island are famous with 3 most things; Winds, Stones and Women.

Winds - It's always windy and trust me you will need better clothing during winter
Stones - There are alot volcanoes thus we can found volcanic rocks everywhere
Women - Why? Those days, men job are fishing on the sea and all the women stay on the island taking care the family. The rage of sea has killed a lot of them who work in sea, thus left a lot women behind. The men on the island are treated like king because of shortage, so they can have few wives and even eat also being spoon-feed. I'm serious! SPOON-FEED!! Sound good to be true? Hahahaha! It was long long long time ago and no longer practicing so.

While on our way up to the hill, the breathtaking view.

Ok! This is the peak of the hill.

The deep blue sky and the strong winds............. frozen my face -.-"

Women diver performance. Diving in such cold weather? Siao ah?

According to Nobita/Tah Shiung the women would dive nearby sore to collect seafoods everyday, doesn't matter it was winter, summer, spring or autumn.

Here is where they dive to collect seafoods for lunch and dinner. Everyday abalone weh!

We saw god after the trek and bought god-coffee before we head to next destination.
