an English Guide to Jeju

One of my coworkers has been working on this really amazing website that has so much information about LIVING on Jeju. It can be found here:

Living on the island for over a year now, I recognize that as a foreigner it can be difficult at times to find cool sites, fun cafes, or delicious food. Google maps? Only really helpful with buses and even then it's not the most accurate.

I still remember my early adventures walking around the city: I was so overwhelmed with all of the Hangeul (한글, Korean writing). I didn't know what was what and that was a little intimidated.

Now that I have more experience under my skin, I thought I would start making an English guide, of sorts, to Jeju (or at least my part of Jeju). I'll try to include the information that I wish I had known, but I also welcome feedback and if I don't include something that you think is important, please let me know so that I can fix that!

Happy Travels!

Currently this guide focuses on these two main areas of the island: Daejeong-Eup & Andeok-Myeon. See image map for reference:

I'm also building a google map and have currently denoted four colours for different categories. Find it here:

East Side
Jeju Folk Village

Five Day Market - Moseulpo (오일장)

*Notice: As I went to find the locations for some of these places, I realized that while the teachers and I refer to Moseulpo as the name of the small village at the south-west point of the island (in Daejeong-eup), that is not fully accurate and does not always appear in the address for restaurant/cafes. Foreigner problems.

Things I've learned about France (or at least Normandy)

Well there we go, my second European country. In some ways, very similar to England (a lot of meat and potatoes, fancy churches, pay toilets...
