Hi all, just wanted to share some of the nicer photos from my recent trip to South Korea. I travelled to quite a few places from Jeju to Seorak to PyeongChang to Seoul.

First thing when I landed at Incheon, I was greeted by snow and sub-zero temperatures.

Then took a domestic flight over to Jeju Island flying in a B737. The winds were pretty strong at the airport resulting in a bumpy final approach for Jeju International Airport...
At around 15ft off the ground I could feel a sudden sink in the aircraft so a hard landing preceded.

Went around to the coastal areas and shot this.

Jeju is a island mostly made of volcanic soil

The next day we visited the east coast of the island with the world-reknowned Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak..one of the seven wonders of the world!

We slowly walked up the plateau.

Up there was a magnificent view of the plateau..unfortunately it was so wide to properly capture it.

We then went to one of the waterfalls at Jeju

The evening sky in Jeju is a lot prettier than any place that I've even been to.

Flew back from Jeju to Gimpo Airport and headed for Everland theme park.

This was one of the photos of the many bridges along the Han River that runs through Seoul.

this ride....got kick! (external link) by Jeremy Kuek (external link), on Flickr

Initially we thought this was a rocket fired by North Korea as the area was constantly being patrolled by military helicopters

Good to hear you had a fun trip, thanks for sharing your pics...which waterfall is that on Jeju? I think I missed that one! And interestingly enough, it looks like Jeju was more crowded when you went in the dead of winter than when I was there last May haha...

It was the Cheonjiyeon waterfall.

The tourists at Jeju are mostly mainland Chinese, Singaporeans and Malaysians. I didn't realize Korea was such a popular holiday destination!
