Now somewhere off Korea’s west coast on the boat to Jeju from Incheon.
Departed Incheon at 7pm. Will arrive in Jeju, God willing, at 8:30am.
Oh my, look at all the seagulls.
Hmm… sea slop. Actually quite tasty.
Photos of Korea, Travel
Isn’t Miyeok-Guk bad luck? or only before an exam?
A boat from Incheon to Jeju?
Reminds of the trans-Atlantic voyages of old..
(Were the trains not in service or something?)
I haven’t had that much white rice in one serving since way back… I can’t remember.
Ooh, is that the boat that shoots off fireworks around midnight?
That first photo is one of the best I’ve ever seen. You really should enter it in a contest – it almost doesn’t look real.
JK trains usually have a small problem getting on to Cheku
and that applies doubly to Cheju
Seriously though Mr Marmot, I’ve wondered about making that trip myself. Would you mind giving a few indications of cost, comfort, sleeping arrangements etc….
I meant taking the train to say Mokpo, and then the ferry to Jeju.
(unless, of course, Korea secretly built an undersea tunnel to Jeju. )
I took the Incheon-Jeju about ten years ago, during lunar new year. It was pretty comfortable – lots of space on board, and each sleeping room had bunk beds (my room had 8, maybe?). I think the rooms were different sizes, though, and I guess you could get stuck in a room with a group of ajjeossis drinking soju and playing go-stop through the night, though I don’t remember if you were assigned to a specific room or what. At any rate, it was a nice way to approach Jeju, and I’m sure I don’t have to tell Robert that taking photos at sunrise is a good way to pass the time.
Robert, i recommend Seondeok-sa temple on the SE slope of Halla-san… Interesting artwork, great views, different from the 3 that everybody else covers (Gwaneum, Yakcheon, Cheonwang)…
