The afternoon in the ferry back to Mokpo. A night in a cheap motel. And here is Gwangju, a city of art.

I spent some time with 2 korean girls I met in Jeju-do. We even made some artistic stuff lol

And I visited the historical and the modern museums. Boring pictures, anyway.

I went on top of the highest peak in South Korea : Hallasan. 8 hours up and down, 1950m high, 1200m elevation gain. A little bit tiring :P

East of Jeju-do, Seongsan is a fishing village, where many tourists come to hike on top of the famous old volcano : Ilchulbong.

On my way there I stopped to visit the lava tube of Manjanggul:

I woke up at 4.45am to see the sunrise from Ilchulbong.

So after 4H30 of ferry I arrived in Jeju-Do, this 70km large island, 85km south of South Korea. The weather is warmer and you can even see palm trees everywhere.

My first stay was in Jeju city.

I enjoyed the sunset along the cost :
