Tips for fellow foreigners planning a trip to Jeju:
- Bring your drivers license if you want to rent a scooter in Udo
- Pack your lunch for beach trips.
- T-money can be used on the buses (though the driver likes one person to pay for everyone)
- Do not swim with your T-money in your pocket.
- Go to Jeju at the end of the vacation season to save money (late August).
- Visit Food Street in Seogwipo-si.
- Plan an entire day for a Mt. Hallasan hike. (Some trails take 5 hours)
- Spend a day at Hyop Jae beach and take silhouette photos at sunset.
- Hike to the top of the famous crater, SEONGSAN ILCHULBONG.
- You cannot wear enough sunscreen.

Though there was no sandy beach, I think I was most in love with Oeldogae. This place is also known as the lonely rock. The swimming here was wonderful (even though Patrick crossed paths with a dead jellyfish) and we were bombarded by a big group of the rare and famous diving grannies.
