sweat.gif Jebudo, the jewel in the west sea of Kore

Surrounded by sea, Korea has many islands. Regardless of size, all these islands have their own unique charm as well. However, Iíd like to specially recommend Jebudo where I had such a wonderful time with my best friends last winter. This wonderful island, about two hours drive west of Seoul, has many interesting things to do. In Jebudo, you must get unforgettable memory like I did.

One of the most fascinating things about Jebudo would have to be the sea between the mainland and the island. It opens up twice a day everyday and reveals an expansive mud field. Now, there is a paved road across the mud, so you can travel to the island either on foot or by car. Even though it was extremely cold when my friends and I were there, we were so excited that we were passing through the dry sea. Anyone hoping to witness the parting sea like Moses did in the Bible can see the miracle in Jebudo.
Another wonderful pleasure in Jebudo is the food. I am sure trying the local food can be intimidating for anyone who visits Korea for the first time. However, if you decide to be adventurous and flexible, Jebudo would be a good starting point. Along the beautiful beach, there are many casual and cozy restaurants where you can enjoy fresh clams and healthy vegetables with tasty noodles. If you want to taste something more special, you may love grilled prawns which a cook brings still alive to your table and grills right in front of you. You can taste the deep flavor of fresh prawns looking at the beautiful scenery and feeling the gentle sea breeze.

Now that you are full, it is the time to enjoy digging up clams on the mud flats. From young children to seniors, everyone seems to enjoy searching for and digging up clams. If you are visiting Jebudo with your children, it would also be a good chance for you to teach them the variety of living creatures on the mud and the importance of protecting nature. You donít need to bring any tools for this activity because you can easily rent a hoe, long boots and even a straw hat that will protect you against the sun from any of the stores along the beach for about one dollar each. We, four attractive women wearing straw hats and silly long boots, enjoyed digging up clams like children even if it was winter. We played with mud and took fabulous pictures on the mud creating our own memories. So, you can also fully enjoy yourself making unforgettable memories with friends, families, or anyone you love.

Another attraction of Jebudo is Maebawi, a cluster of three rock formations that look like a falcon. The sunset at Maebawi is definitely not to be missed. When the sun sinks down and beautifully colors the sky with its glow, it will take your breath away. The scenery is really beyond description. Ever after watching the sunset at Maebawi, I havenít seen such a beautiful sunset on the Korean Peninsula again.
Now popular with locals and international visitors, Jebudo offers everyone something unforgettable. Anyone who visits the island must be allured by its unique attractions. Whether you enjoy taking a walk along the seashore, digging up clams, fishing, trying local foods, or watching the beautiful sunset at Maebawi, a visit to Jebudo will provide you with a great chance to escape from your tired routines and to reconnect yourself with the nature.

Nope, I've never been to Korea, but I have THREE friends who have taught in South Korea.

I also love to eat kim chi and Korean barbecue.
