My Jeju Map

As I’m preparing for my upcoming trip to Jeju, decided to put together this map of my accommodation, attractions I plan to visit, and interesting vegetarian/halal-friendly/ halal food places in Jeju for my reference.   Hopefully others will find the map useful too! (This map is still a work in progress and will be continuously updated over June – Aug 2015 as I plan my trip). (Also see my Seoul map here).

Last Updated: 4 July 2015

Note: Those labelled “Tried & Tested by Ms. RaRa” are those that I’ve actually visited on my last trip. Other places were found based on my research online. When you click on each place on the map, you will also also see links to blogs/websites that I referred to. Click on those for more info. The following are my main references.

Autumn 2014 Trip: Final Itinerary

Cycling along the Han River
Cycling along the Han River

The autumn trip finally happened and needless to say, I had a fantastic time! The photo above captures one of the key highlights of the trip, which was cycling along the Han River. In that sense, my dream of cycling IN Korea really came true, though that is really not the same as cycling across Korea, which I hope I get to do some day.

Anyway, here goes, my trip itinerary. Will be updating with hyperlinks to posts about each day’s activities as those get written. So this post will function as a sort of directory for the posts on this trip.

Autumn 2014 Trip: Planning

Who’d have thought I’ll be going to Korea twice in a year? Just happens that I’m getting a few weeks break in between jobs and thus have a chance to travel. Korea is the natural choice given how much fun I had on my trip there this past spring, It’s also much easier to plan a trip to somewhere one has been to before. Yup, just like the last time, I’m self-planning the trip. It’s not easy, with a million and one decisions to weigh, but so very fun!

In anticipation of future posts on the trip this time round, I started a new blog category (Autumn 2014) and commemorating it with this post 🙂

Let’s start with my itinerary. For now, only the first 3 days are more or less confirmed.
