Climbing Mt Hallasan was absolutely amazing, and I would recommend anyone going to Jeju to attempt a climb. If you’re a bit unsure, make sure to research the trails before-hand and start walking in the morning – many trails close at 2-3pm.
Before I left Korea, I decided I needed to visit its famous holiday island, Jeju. I flew down and stayed in a hostel near the main bus terminal. While this was convenient for taking the bus, next time I would probably stay closer to the downtown area which has more restaurant and shopping options.
My last month in Korea! We said a lot of goodbyes, drank a few drinks, tried to eat as much Korean food as humanly possible and generally tried to fit in all the things a good procrastinator always leaves to the very end. July is when summer really starts to kick in, and the Koreans take to the outdoors to cool off.
