Korea Day 1 (Seoul -------> Jeju Island)

on Jan 1, 2010
Next destination... Jeju Island... Considered as the most beautiful island in Korea... This was the place that the Koreans will go for their honeymoon... We were considered lucky because our flight to Jeju was scheduled at around 2 something in the afternoon... So we got plenty of time and we don't have to rush unlike some others... I knew some of the other tour were not so lucky because they needed to wait at the airport for around 2-3 hours in ordered to catch their next flight to Jeju... We still managed to tour around Seoul and had nice BBQ lunch before taking off to the airport...



Along the way, I saw a lot of Coffee Beans and Starbucks... Guessed the Koreans really likes to drink coffee... What surprised me the most was the lack of McDonald's and KFC in Korea... The reason for this was because Korean prefer Lotteria which was they very own local fast food joint... So that explained the lack of McD and KFC in Korea...

But Dunkin Donuts was everywhere!!! You can virtually walked around in Korea blindfolded and simply walk into a Dunkin Donuts shop...


Snapped this pic in our tour bus...


I'm so excited because the moment we reached the airport, it started to snow!!! Just looked at the road... I bet the Koreans were really curious looking at a bunch of really 'JAKUN' people snapping pictures of the road covered in snow...

Waited for our turn to board the plane... Oh gosh another boring hour on the plane!!!


Thank god because the view out of the plane was really spectacular... Cotton candy like clouds covering the whole sky... Really a sight to behold!!!

To be continue...
