The Mountainous Side of Jeju Island

One of the most difficult questions to answer whenever it comes to deciding where to go on a holiday is: to the beach or to the mountain? Fortunately, Jeju island is one of those places in the world that can satisfy both “beach” and “mountain” people!

Although the island has been gaining popularity for its beautiful beaches, Jeju also offers a variety of unique mountainous and forest experiences that are absolutely worth trying. Here are some of KoreaTravelEasy Team’s suggestions:

 

1. Go hiking on Hallasan Mountain

A must-do activity when coming to Jeju, especially for people who enjoy hiking and challenging themselves. Hallasan, one of Jeju’s most important landmarks and icons, is famous for its geological and biological values as well as spectacular scenery. Known as the highest mountain in South Korea, it is definitely a peak worth conquering for every enthusiastic hiker who visits the island.
 
Despite its 1.950 m height, Hallasan offers 7 trails which are all less than 10km in length and not very difficult to hike. Getting to the top of the mountain and going back is a task feasible to be done in just a day, but be careful of the constantly changing weather and strong wind along your way to the peak.
 

 

2. Even more hiking on the Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak

Your hiking journey on the island cannot be complete without a hike up to the Seongsan Ilchulbong (성산일출봉). The Peak, which is nicknamed the Sunrise Peak due to its location on the eastern corner of Jeju Island, was formed over 100,000 years ago after a volcanic eruption under the sea. The ultimate reward of a climb up this crest is the breathtaking view of an ancient crater that looks like a giant green majestic crown. The place is also famous for having a magnificent sunrise view.

It is not at all a too tiring task climbing up the peak. Theoretically, you only need 20 minutes to finish the hiking course without resting time. But since the most important thing is to enjoy the scenery, a slow walk with occasional resting is highly recommended.
 
 

3. Your legs got tired? Get on the rail bike trip at Jeju Island Rail Park

That seems to be quite a lot of leg works already huh? Now if your only desire is to appreciate the countryside and mountainous scenery without having to walk yourself around, the rail bike trip is a perfect choice. If you haven’t tried the rail bike before, then imagine a combination of a car and a bike, which moves on train tracks.

Theoretically, the vehicle only moves when you use your leg power on the pedal (just like a normal bike). However, since it is actually quite an exhausting work for most people, there is an automatic lever which can be pushed to move the car forward and stop it when needed. Thanks to this, you don’t need to be too focused on pumping your legs and forget the picturesque view of mountains, hills, and grassy stretches around. An important warning: be careful of the cows and horses that might just casually cross your path.
 
 
4. Fill your stomach with delicious food in the middle of a forest!

Now that you’re completely tired from all those climbing and (partially) cycling, you need to treat your belly well with good foods, not from the fancy restaurants by the beaches, but from a sparkling night market in the middle of the forest. Sumokwon (수목원) night market is an interesting food truck experience that is still rather new to a lot of tourists to Jeju.

If you’re familiar with the night food market in big cities like Seoul, then you know exactly what this place offers. Beef steaks, giant turkey legs, buttered shrimps, Jeju special black pork on a stick…a variety of dishes offered by colorful food trucks would surely make you immediately drool and satisfy your hunger. Pick your favorites, and sit down on a wooden table set under the romantic string lights surrounded by the green hue of the forest. A definitely cool and not-so-mainstream Jeju experience!

Busan is known as the 2nd largest city in South Korea after Seoul. This beautiful port city not only attracts tourists by its poetic natural scenery and abundant shopping locations, but also by its attractive street cuisine.

 

So which special street foods should we go for in Busan? Let’s explore Busan culinary culture with KoreaTravelEasy via this article!

 

 

1. Ssiat Hotteok (Busan Sweet Pancake)

 

Hotteok – a type of sweet pancake filled with brown sugar – is a very popular snack in Korea.  The basic ingredients of this dish consist of glutinous rice flour mixed with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon, then fried in oil pan or butter. Instead of filling with only traditional brown sugar, different kinds of healthy seeds such as sunflower and sesame seeds are also added into the Busan version “Ssiat hotteok.”

 

When you bite into the hotteok, the cinnamon sugar mixture will flow out and bring about a sweet and delicious flavor. This snack can be very addictive to people who have a sweet tooth! You can find ssiat hotteok at Nampo-dong, BIFF square, Gukje market, or street food stalls in Seomyeon Food Alley.

2. Eomuk (Fish Cake)

 

Referring to Busan – South Korea’s most important port city, people will naturally think of its cool sea breeze and fresh seafoods. Therefore, Busan’s most famous specialty is fish cakes made from fresh fish and other seafoods such as shrimps, crabs and squids caught directly from the sea.

 

You can choose from a wide variety of fish cakes made from different ingredients, with different shapes and ways of processing. Eomuk can be found at many street foods stalls across the city, in subway stations, or you can also go to the famous fish cake stores in Busan.

3. Sundae (Korean Blood Sausage)

 

Be careful not to confuse this dish with the American ice cream dessert😅 , sundae’  here is the Latin transliteration of Korean blood sausage ‘순대’.  Filling ingredients such as pork, vermicelli noodles, barley, and herbs are stuffed into a cleaned pig intestine and then steamed. This savory dish when served hot will bring about the juicy taste of meat as well as the interesting chewy texture of pig intestines.

 

This delicious and unique dish is easy to find on the major roads in Busan or near Seomyeon station. You can also enjoy it while walking because it will be put into a convenient paper cup with a wooden skewer.

5. Yubu Jumeoni (Fried Tofu Pocket)

 

Yubu jumeoni is the signature winter food of Busan, made by stuffing glass noodles and other ingredients into a fried tofu (yubu) ‘bag’ (jumeoni). Yubu jumeoni is cooked in hot broth, similar to eomuk. Within the yubu, the glass noodles and vegetables offer a light yet rich fragrance, deepened by the broth.

 

This snack can also be made into the main ingredient of a more complicated dish: “halmae yubu jeongol” (fried tofu hotpot). Other ingredients of the hotpot include beef or fish cake, shiitake mushrooms, enoki mushrooms, carrots, bean sprouts, oysters and onions. Fried tofu hotpot is served with udon noodles or potato vermicelli noodles.
