    1. Dear Kayne,

      Yes, it is a nice place which offer stunning landscape and food plus cultures. Try out their hanbok, the Korean traditional dress too!

  1. Not sure how you managed to pull it off (guess it’s our fast pace back here in SG?), as it seems like much of the time is spent travelling between cities than actually exploring them to understand them better. Nonetheless, looks like you enjoyed yourself!

    1. Dear Nathan,
      Yes, you are quite right, the time spent on the road is few hours a day. Still manage to visit few attraction after reaching the city but quite tiring!

  2. I’d love to visit South Korea, mostly to see Nami Island, it just looks so beautiful based on the movies and photos I’ve seen. Hope I can go to visit this country soon, I’m also mostly excited about the food as I love Korean food.

    1. Dear Jiro,
      The distance from Seoul to Jeungdo is 321km and the road distance is 369km.

      If you go by train Korail, it is about 3 hours $40-95. If you go by bus, it takes about 4 hour 18 min, cost you $55-76. You can also drive there which cost your 4 hour. There is a direct train departing from Seoul Station and arriving at Mokpo Station. Services depart every four hours, and operate every day. The journey takes approximately 2 h 53 min. This is the fastest way to reach Jeungdo.

    1. Dear Wendy,

      From the Mokpo Bus Terminal, take the bus to Jido. The bus runs every 30 minutes between 6:30am and 7:00pm, and takes 1 hour.

      From the Jido Bus Terminal, take the shuttle bus to Saokdo’s Jisingae Dock. The bus runs frequently, in accordance with the boat schedule. It costs 1,500 won and takes 15 minutes. Or take a taxi, which takes 7-8 minutes and costs 8,000 won.

      Take the boat at the dock. -> Get off at Jeungdo Dock.
