We had to be on our way by 7.30 am this morning, there was a short cycle to the ferry building, well to find the ferry building first then buy the tickets.
It cost ₩3000 for each bicycle and ₩35400 each person, the booking was maee very easy as at the ticket office they spoke very good english.
You then wheel your bike into a steel container in the car and lorry part of the ferry but you cannot board there you have to return to the ticket office and get on as a foot passenger. That was it, easy and four hours or so later the ship docked in Jeju City Harbour.
The journey across was uneventful, we did pass a lot of smaller islands, everywhere shrouded in the every present fog so the views whilst nice were never spectacular.
Once off the ferry we made our way to the hotel we had booked, the room was very large but poorly appointed, we will not stop here on the way back, it was not expensive at ₩39850 a night.
We did have a wander around yet another huge market, Dongmun Traditional Market and Dongmun Fish Market. Our main purchase was the Jeju Mandarins called Hellabong (a type of Dekopon mandarin), very sweet and juicy.

Nice one Janet. Are you in North or South Korea.
That’s the whole problem she has no idea!
But we are in South Korea, you can go on organised and approved cycling trips only in North Korea, interestingly women were banned from cycling until 2012 as it was considered immodest and socially undesirable and all bicycles have registration plates like cars.
