Hi, would like to share my wonderful experience in jeju. We engaged a taxi driver to drive us around for 2 days.
First day, he brought us to main attractions like the cheonjiyeon waterfall, jungbang waterfall, oedolgae rock and yongmeori coast with a sumptuous seafood lunch near the coast. The price was so reasonably priced and you will never find such rate eating fresh abalones and seafood in singapore! In between, he will make an effort to introduce us to some special places along the route.
Second day, we requested to watch the sunrise peak at seongsan llchubong and our dear driver woke up at 3am to check if the weather was clear to be able to watch the sunrise before giving us a morning call to confirm the excursion! We were really impressed with his dedication and kindness.
After sunrise, he treated us to a simple korean breadfast which we insisted on paying instead as already felt so bad to trouble him at such early hours. As it was still too early to catch the ferry to udo island, he brought us to another nearby coastal area to watch the female divers. We were so lucky as we followed them to the rocks and witnessed the aged but feisty ladies jumping into the freezing cold water to start their catch. The oldest woman aged 83! So amazing!
At udo island, We had a super great time enjoying the scenic views of the island with our taxi driver. As my ten year old girl was exhausted after touring udo island for half day, our taxi driver ensured us to have a nap n woke us up just before reaching our next destination- the manjanggul lava cave. Our last attraction was the gimnyeong maze and my girl found it pretty easy to find the exit. I was just tagging behind her and was surprised to find it ended so soon,,,After all the sightseeing, our driver brought us to have a great sumptuous black pork dinner. It was an experience! First, he brought us to a fresh pork market stall to buy the meat and walked into the opposite eatery for them to cook for us and provided us the side dishes. He explained It was the way most local people enjoy their black pork feast and the bill was less than half compared to the black pork restaurants near our hotel!
We had such great time and he did not want to accept the extra money for the extra early hours initially and we insisted as we felt it was not right to work so many extra hours for nothing. The arrangement was 9am to 5pm but we started the day at 4am!
We felt so lucky to engage him and I think we should share his excellent service and recommend him to people who are keen to sightsee in jeju to ensure a fantastic time during their holiday.
