ferry terminal

After the Sewol Ferry Capsizing Disaster on 16th of April, ferry businesses have all but died. However, for those who are curious how ferry terminals look, I’ve taken some photos today there. Ferry Int’l Terminal didn’t live up to its name until now, but new Int’l Ferry Port was under construction. 3 years from now, the terminal would be a famous sightseeing point.

Inside the Int’l Ferry Terminal, handful of people, most of whom were foreigners from the developing countries, were waiting for the ferry.

Foreign workers were staring blankly at their own smartphones.

 6000 Chinese Amway members came all the way from China to Jeju for travel.

 Local Ferry Terminal was a bit faraway, so I had to walk for 20 minutes. 5th Pier Port Entrance could be seen during the walk.

3rd Pier Port seemed busiest among all the port entrances.

City tour bus would’ve taken you here.

 

For curious souls, I recommend taking bus number 92. As a matter of fact, it’s the only bus(except city tour bus) which takes you here(25-minute-interval.) There aren’t much things to do and buy, so backpackers other than traveling to other parts of the South Korea should put this place at the end of their where-to-go bucket list!
