Solo Day 5 South Korea - 25th Nov 2014 (Hallim Park + Haepjae Beach)

Today, I decided to go to West site of Jeju which include Hallim Park and Hyeopjae Beach. I took bus no 700 from Jeju City Bus Terminal and headed to Hallim Park. Journey took about 40 mins. If you drive a car, it should be less as “Bus stops at every bus stops”. I get off at Hallim Park and pay 10000krw for the entrance fee. I thought that Hallim Park is just a plain boring park but I was mistaken. I enjoy being there including the fact that they have Chrysanthemums Flowers Festival during my visit. To know more about Hallim Park, kindly refer to the picture below.

After Hallim Park, I went to Hyeopjae Beach. It’s a walking distance from Hallim Park. The crystal clear blue water was really mesmerizing and opposite to it was Biyang-Do island. I thought that I can took a ferry or a boat to the island but there are only 2 trips per day (09:00 or 15:00 and travel time is 15 minutes) from Hallim port. I missed the first one and I don’t think I have enough time to discover the whole island before nightfall,so I just I skipped the plan. Wish to go there for next visit.

To make it easy to walk on the sand

Nice isnt it???

You can see the Biyang-do Island

I walked along the coastline for 2 hours and get on the same bus for Jeju Si.

The houses was few meters away from the beach..

At 5.30 pm, I was on my way back to hostel because at 7 pm, im going to have a date with my previous taxi driver. Mr Boo Yongseok!! horaayyyy
We still keep in touch and I love his family very much. Since he know that i'll becoming to Jeju again, he contacted me and insisted to have dinner with me. of course, i should never turn him down. While texting with him before he picked me up, I somehow tried to explain things like i dont eat pork and meat and so on bla bla bla..and suddenly, he just laughed and said, "No worry Aishah..i know you very well.. you are one of a kind".. errrr, he still remember things i've told him during my last visit???.. hahaha... what a shame..

he picked me up and brought me to the best seafood restaurant in Jeju Island (only the local knows best)..he spell it as Bo Keon.. and i tell you what, the food was superbly delicious..highly recommended..  tak pernah aku rasa soup, kimchee, sayur and mackarel sesedap ini... sumpah

Sharing stories,laughing hard, motivating each others was all we did that night...

I miss him so bad!!

Everything was delicious.

After dinner, he sent me off to the hostel.

He offered to send me to the airport the next morning..

Just in case if you would like to take a taxi tour around Jeju Island, please drop me an email at with Title : Jeju Island Taxi Driver. I will redirect you to him personally.

I strongly recommend him to be your tour guide because he can speak very good English and Japanese. Hes local so he know Jeju at its best. He is very nice kind hearted man and will ensure that you will have a happy/pleasant journey with him.
