where are the bars?
we are looking for good bars, nightlife,shopping and some good sight seeing, anyone know of a good hotel to stay in close to these area? We are leaving on Friday the 15th of september. we are looking for something around $100 to $120 USD per night, we really don't care what part of the island we stay on.
RE: where are the bars?
Stay along Jeju's southern coast. With your budget you can probably stay within Jungmun Resort area. There are lots of decent hotels around...
There is nothing much to do in Jeju-si (city). Hence, I really do not recommend to stay there. Fly onto Jeju-Do, rent a car and hit the road. The southern part is really nice.
As for bars:
Frankly, I never looked for bars during my trips to Jeju-Do but all hotels have some good bars and restaurants in case you're willing to pay the charges. In this respect, Jeju-city might be a better place to stay but I don't think that your main purpose of visiting Jeju-Do is to go into bars, is it...?
Have a look at my VT Jeju-Do page for more details if you like.
Travel Tips for Jeju (city)
Ever Been to Scotland, or any Other Rocky Place?
What did they do with all those rocks..? Well Jeju is a Volcanic Island, and full of stone, just like Hawai'i, and just as the ancient Hawaiians used the ubiquitous basalt to build EVRYTHING, so too did the ancient Jeju Islanders. You've already seen picture sof the stone houses. Now you see the rocks used as rocks walls.
These walls often demarcate not only houses and their Madang or Courtyards, they are often also used to shelter paths (Walls of both sides) jeju is somewhat windy you see. But most commonly you will see these walls demarcating boundaries and providing shelter as shelter belts for non wind hardy crops.
All the same. they are beautiful huh.
