South Korea The Three Plentiful in Jeju Island the Wind the Women and the Rocks

In the recent years, South Korea has become a popular travel destination for many Singaporeans. We decided to give Korea a try after hearing praises about this "Land of the Morning Calm". Well, I am glad to say that we made the right choice!.Jeju Island, also known as the "Honeymoon Island", is a must-try in South Korea.

We arrived at Jeju Island in the late morning of March, after an hour's flight from Seoul. The weather in Jeju Island is usually about one to two degree Celsius higher than Seoul. Soothing weather, if you compare with the warm and humid climate along the equator.

Three things are plentiful in Jeju Island ? the wind, the women and the rocks!.-- The Wind -- You will regret if you decide to tuck away those windbreakers of yours. Although the temperature is supposedly warmer, the strong wind is sure to chill you to your marrows! So, wherever you go in Jeju Island, make sure you have your warm clothing (scarves, gloves, thermal wear, etc) with you. Warm water helps to combat the chills quite effectively. A thermo flask of warm water would come in handy. Make sure you put on moisturiser (preferably one that contains UV screen) before you leave the hotel, to protect your skin against the dry weather.

Lip balm is another essential item to bring along, as it provides moisture to your lips. Do not attempt to wet your lips with saliva, it will only cause the condition to get worse!.-- The Women -- In the olden days, young men left their families in Jeju Island to earn a living in the cities. Women stayed behind to work in the fields and look after the young and old at home.

That explains why there were many more women than men in Jeju Island during those days. If the weather is calm and you are lucky, you might be able to catch a glimpse of the lady divers in Jeju Island. An extremely dangerous occupation, it is no longer a popular job amongst the younger Korean women. Increasingly rare, these divers consist of older women who earn a living by selling shellfish and marine products (such as clams, mussels and seaweeds) that they collect from the seabed.-- The Rocks -- It is interesting to know that Jeju Island was formed millions of years ago, as a result of volcanic eruptions. Try stamping your feet on its ground, and you will realise that it sounds hollow.

Rocks in all shapes and sizes can be found everywhere in Jeju Island. The Yongdu-am (Dragon Head Rock) is a must-see in Jeju Island. The majestic rock that faces the sea can be found at the western end of Jeju Island. While most people felt that the rock resembles the head of a dragon, some people felt that it is more like the head of a horse. Well, I shall leave that to your own imagination! If you love seafood, you would be able to come across some older women selling fresh seafood around the area.

Visit South Korea, Jeju Island in particular. It is a trip that will take your breath away!.For more travel resources and information, please visit the Travel Mambo? website at
