Korea Day 1 (Mysterious Road In Jeju Island)

on Jan 2, 2010
'Dokebi Road' aka 'Mysterious Road' in Jeju Island was a tourist attraction but not so to the locals... So why called the 'Mysterious Road'??? What's so mysterious about this particular stretch of road??? Apparently when one turned off his/her car engine, their car will start rolling uphill!!!

This road was founded by a taxi driver who was giving a newlywed couple a driving tour around the area in year 1980... So obviously this stretch of road became really popular after that...


Scientifically there was nothing mysterious about this road... Actually the cars were all going downhill instead of uphill... This was all an illusion... Due to the lack of a true horizon, subconsciously our judgement of a slope was misled by the false horizon in that area... When you reach the end of the road, you will noticed that the road was actually going downhill instead of uphill... And this explained why the car will start rolling when you turned off the engine... Myth busted I'm afraid!!! Haha... But we all enjoyed it nonetheless...






It started to snow AGAIN!!! But too bad I can't captured the snow in this pic... I tried but I failed!!!


BBQ chicken stick... Really nice... The chicken was really really soft and tender!!! And not forgetting juicy as well...


My darling enjoying her BBQ chicken stick...


Noticed this really nice scenery near our tour bus and decided to snap a few pics...



To be continue...
