Korea Diary | Last of the Jeju Field Trip (Day 5)
Before the busy morning of packing and checking out, we had another breakfast buffet to fill our tummies. Yes yes that is quite a plate full for the morning but I wasn't keeping a track of our itinerary. Better to stuff myself incase lunch was late, right?
Tip: Must try the Jeju tangerine juice! I think the brand that we had was Lotte. (Click here to see what it looks like.)

When she said water flows uphill here, we couldn't believe it.
When we all filed off our buses and watched the demonstration, we were intrigued.
The uphill seems slight but noticeable. Water didn't roll upwards quickly but it definitely happened. I have forgotten her explanation but the Internet says it's all but an optical illusion.
Many of us lost interest after we saw the evidence of water trickling uphill. Luckily there were food stands and souvenir shops set up to keep visitors' attention.

Since Bestie and I were in SK Global House, our room had an en suite. I think all rooms regardless has a twin bed, desk, and small closet. The separate toilet and shower/sink area was a little weird to me but got to make do. We were glad to be rooming with each other since there was only a shower door and no separate "room" door.
Once we got acquainted with the new surroundings and bought some toiletries, our friends and I headed to explore Sinchon for dinner.
- Toilet paper is not included in the en suite style rooms. I packed a roll in case we needed to go right away. There are convenience stores downstairs of the dorms and nearby but since there are so many people at the dorms it could be difficult.
- Internet is accessed via LAN cable inside the rooms. Bring that extra one you have lying at home with you or buy one from the convenience store at the dorms for a few thousand won.
Since everyone was pretty worn out and hungry, we didn't go very far until we found Parmi. I was hesitant since Western foods in Korea tend to be altered to Korean tastes but Parmi was pretty good. Everyone agreed that even if it wasn't 100% authentic Italian food, it definitely wasn't Korean-Italian cuisine.
