Take a taxi from Chunjiyeon to Jeongbang( $4)
Chunjiyeon and Jeongbang Waterfalls are very close to each other

Located inside the Seogwipo City, Jeongbang and Cheonjiyeon waterfalls are the most favorite tourist destinations in Seogwipo. It only took around 20 minutes to get to the Jeongbang waterfalls from the Lee Jung Seob Street. Ticket office next to Jeongbang was already crowded with Chinese tourists. Scenery around Jeongbang was very exotic.

I soon arrived at Cheonjiyeon Waterfalls. Due to the hot weather, water flowing from the waterfalls wasn’t much. The real view of the waterfalls was better after the rain.

What I liked most about the Cheonjiyeon Falls was its beautiful scenery around the waterfalls. Forest surrounding the waterfalls was more favorable than the waterfall itself. As it was too hot outside, I took a taxi to Jeongbang since it was pretty much close. Jeongbang was more related to the experience you actually had, since anyone could feel the water falling down from the close distance.

One good thing about Jeongbang was that I could actually go right next to the waterfalls and feel the splashing water itself. I liked Jeongbang more than Cheonjiyeon for this reason.

Road to Seogwipo City

Just before going to the Downtown Seogwipo, I went to Seobok Exhibition Hall which explained how the Seogwipo City got its name. Seobok was a person who came to Seogwipo to obtain elixir plant which was known to give immortal life to the person who eats it. Legend says that 1st emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang(259-210B.C.) wanted it and Seobok came all the way to Seogwipo from China to get this elixir plant. Although Seobok failed to get it from Seogwipo, the place where he visited got the name Seogwipo from Seobok. I looked around the Seobok Exhibition shortly.

After watching 2 waterfalls, I headed to the bus stop where I got off in the first place to get to the Jungmun Tourist Complex. I got on the bus, expecting to see something even more exotic from the travelers’ favorite destination.
