The Lost Wanderer Itinerary Series: Busan

Busan may not be as favorite as Seoul and Jeju, but it can be an alternative to explore as the largest port city in South Korea. Except than the beach and port, the city itself almost resembles Seoul (maybe in few years back :p). How lovely the life of Busan people, they are living in a big city with many good facilities, yet they can easily reach beautiful beaches within the city.

Another reason to travel to Busan especially for South East Asians, there is flight AirAsia from KL to Busan which usually cheaper than KL to Seoul, vice versa. Some travelers opt to travel to Busan first then take the local transportation to the other part of South Korea.

For you who wants to travel to Busan and needs some ideas where and how to go around or just wants to read my story (hehe :p), you can download and read my second itinerary series ebook for free in this link (please open it using browser, not Scribd mobile app, because it does not work in the mobile app, I don't know why). 

In this ebook, I share the story of my trip to Busan almost 6 years ago. Long time ago, but the information is still valid. It was a short trip though, only 2 days 1 night, not as long as my first ebook (Gyeongju), but hopefully it would be much useful. If you also read my Gyeongju ebook, you can see that the book format is the same. This is the format I will always use in what I called as The Lost Wanderer Itinerary Series (TLWIS).

Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it, even though it took me more than a year to write haha. Off I go now to write the next one. Hmmm maybe after cuddling my daughter first... and finish that book on the shelf... and.... well, see ya! :)

Jeju Island in 3 Days

Jeju Island, the Hawaii of Korea, where couples usually go for honeymoon, and the place of many UNESCO Nature Heritage sites, is really beautiful and romantic. Some people say we need to spend at least 1 week to explore and experience the most of this island, but in my opinion 3 days are enough. Trust me, many places in Jeju only look good in advertisement, they're good at selling it. There are no interesting places in the North and West part of Jeju Island, so you can focus on East and South. East and South parts are amazingly naturally beautiful! Here's the itinerary I recommend.

Day-1: East of Jeju Island

Manjanggul / Manjang Cave
Spending time: 30-45 minutes
Hallasan, located in the middle of Jeju Island is the only volcanic mountain in Korea. It created several small volcanic mountains throughout Jeju Island, called Oreum in Korean. One of the biggest Oreum is Geomun Oreum, famous with its large lava tube system and designated as a UNESCO Natural Heritage site. It has few l…

Review: Homestay Cahaya Sikunir Dieng

Mencari penginapan di Dieng itu susah-susah gampang. Disana tidak ada hotel, adanya penginapan rumahan atau homestay. Beberapa turis kadang menginap di kota Wonosobo, sekitar sejam dari Dieng, demi mendapat penginapan yang bagus. Pilihan di travel apps hanya sedikit dan kurang cocok. Setelah browsing sana-sini, terutama baca review blog orang, saya hubungi beberapa homestay di Dieng baik lewat telpon maupun Whatsapp. Saat kami sudah mulai road trip Jawa Tengah tanggal 12 Desember, kami masih belum tau mau menginap dimana di Dieng tanggal 17 Desember nya. Karena waktu itu kami belum fix juga sih mau berapa malam di Dieng, 1 atau 2 malam? Kalau 2 malam, keduanya di homestay yang sama atau ganti homestay?

Akhirnya tanggal 16 Desember, sehari sebelum ke Dieng (saat itu kami di Solo), kami memutuskan untuk menginap 2 malam di Dieng. Malam pertama di Homestay Cahaya Sikunir, karena keesokan subuh nya mau sok-sokan melihat sunrise di Bukit Sikunir, dan malam kedua di Homestay Serayu. Untuk

Transportation in Jeju Island

These are some remarks regarding public transportation in Jeju.
Buses in Jeju Island accept Seoul's t-money card. You can buy and top-up it in convenience store, like GS25 and Family Mart.City buses normally charge 1000won for cash, or 950won for t-money card. If you pay by card, tap it to the machine when you aboard and when you alight. If you transit between 2 buses during a certain times, fee for the next bus can be 0won, or free.Intercity buses vary depends on the distance, usually between 1000-3000won. There's no different fee paying with cash or card. When you aboard the bus, tell the driver about your destination, he will tell you how much it is, and you have to pay there directly. If you pay by card, no need to tap it again when you get off.There are 2 bus terminals in Seogwipo city. The main bus terminal is in the south-east of downtown, near the Jeongbang Waterfall, which is also the old one. The second one is to the right of the E-mart in front of the World Cup Stad…
