Jeju Island Itinerary Day 5: Songaksan Mountain, O'sulloc Tea Museum & Jeongbang Waterfall
We woke up early in the morning to start our day as Jeju Island has so much thing to see and each attraction is located 30-40 minutes from each other’s and the speed limit is 50 - 80 on the highway. FYI, there’s plenty of cameras on the highway so be prepared to drive slow or should I say drive safe?
Our first stop was Songaksan Mountain, which is 40 minutes ride from our Airbnb. We were hungry by the time we reach the Songaksan Mountain and we decided to have our early lunch at a random Korean Restaurant that’s located at the car parking. The food was damn good and excellent service. I loved their Grilled Mackreal and Seafood Stew. YUM!!
After our fulfilling lunch, we decided to explore the Songaksan Mountain. It's chilly and the weather was excellent to explore the Songaksan Mountain. I loved the beauty of the nature and cold wind blows on my face, GORGEOUS!! After spending about an hour or so, we decided to take away Starbucks before moving on to our next location. Jeju Island Starbucks has some limited editions drink & snacks that are only available in Jeju Island and we decided to try their Black Sesame Latte @ KRW 7,200/RM 25.28, it’s so good. In my opinion, it tastes almost similar to the Black Sesame Tong Sui that you can get from any Tong Sui Chinese Restaurant in Malaysia. Starbucks Black Sesame Latte is a little dilute version than the thick and creamy black sesame tong Sui.Our second attraction is Tangerine Picking Farm however; the luck was not on our side. At first, we went to the wrong location (Jeju Island Zoo). Thanks to the GPS!! Then, we followed Google Map but the Tangerine Picking Farm was closed. SO SAD!!
Hence, we went to the third location, which is an Osulloc Tea Museum. It was very crowded with people and we actually struggled to get a table. After waited for about 10 minutes, we managed to get a table. Therefore, I asked my dad to sit at the empty table while both myself and my sister went to order the food. We ordered Set C, which comes with Green Tea Ice- Cream, Green Tea Roll Cake and Tangerine Drink. I loved their Green Tea Roll Cake and Tangerine Drink, so good!! It cost me KRW 17,600/RM 61.80.
After our short tea break, we went to the Jeongbang Waterfall and it cost us KRW 2,000/RM 7.02 per person. It was so gorgeous that I have fallen in love with it. The water was clear and swimming is not allowed in the Jeongbang Waterfall if not I could have enjoyed myself here. I guess we were lucky; we reached here around 5pm without knowing about their entry hours. FYI, they don't allow anyone after 6pm. It started to get dark around 7pm so we decided to head back home.
Same thing happened all over again that we went to the wrong location. I think I should have saved the location in my Google Map so that we don't get lost again. We were dead tired by the time we reach our Airbnb that I cooked Korean Maggie for dinner before calling it a day. My dad loved their Korean Maggie that he doesn’t mind having it every day. Hahaha!!
