Sojeongbang Pokpo (Waterfall) 소정방폭포
This five meter high waterfall is just 500 meters east of Jeongbang Falls. This waterfall is smaller, but very popular with visitors who wish to stand underneath the falling water. Its small size also adds to the friendly and safe atmosphere.

The path runs through exquisite sceneries of strange rock formations and cliffs, as well as dense subtropical evergreens of the Cheonjiyeon Valley. The valley was designated as a nature preserve area. Gijeong means ‘cliff’ in the Jeju dialect.

This was formed by volcanic activity at the same time as Jeju Island about 1.5 million years ago. The 20 meter stone pillar “Oedolgae” stands out and you can see a group of pine trees that grow at the very top of the pillar.

Oedolgae Rock ---> Wolpyung port
about 15km, 4~5 hours
Mr Goh (Gabriel) & Rosa, are genuinely warm, kind and helpful. From the moment we reached till the last day we left, he took great care of us. Rosa (his wife) doesnt speak english, but she made sure to call Gabriel to speak to us when we arrived on the first day. to find out what food we like to eat and where we wanna sight-see etc then they will write down on paper so that we can show to the taxi driver. and the food places that she and Gabriel recommends is to die for. its super yummy! They make sure we never go hungry nor bored.
Although their house was a distance from the town center, I enjoyed every minute of our stay here. Rosa kept the room spotless! and very cosy. we slept on ondol beds which i folded in the mornings when we woke up.
and when we go back in the evenings, she already layed the bed so neatly for us to rest. this is my very first time sleeping on ondol bed, and we are loving it! we had very good nights sleep every night.
Gabriel, will ask about places of interest and he will suggest and offer really good advise of things like where to go, what to eat etc.
my younger daughter misses Rosa's breakfast so much!
we had issues as my daughter left her wallet, phone etc in a cab. Altough i am back in SG for 2 weeks now, Even as we speak, Gabriel is still helping us to recover out lost items! he even called us on when we arrived in seoul after Jeju to enquire after my well-being. As I had indigestion in the morning before we left Jeju.
I cannot thank this wonderful couple enough for their kindness! Will definitely stay in Rosa again in future!
P.s. if you guys have intention of going to Jeju and are first timers, I suggest you booked Gabriel in advance if you want him to bring you around for sight-seeing. he charges around 150,000 won which is the same price if we book a taxi for a days trip. and the plus point is... Gabriel speaks english! and if you decide to book Gabriel after you arrived there, you will be disappointed. He is a very busy man! but i am certain you would not regret it.

If you would like to experience living in Jeju like a local, by all means, try out this place. Rosa Imo (Rosa Auntie) and Imobu (Uncle) have provided accommodation in their fully-equipped house built originally for their children who are now in Seoul. They live in another detached house a few metres away from where we were staying at.
Upon reaching Rosa BnB, they sat down with us to help plan out our itinerary. We felt really thankful as they gave us so much advice from what to eat, where to go and how to go. If you are still troubled as to what you would wanna do at Jeju, they might just be the best people to help!
On the first night, Imobu entertained us with renditions of famous classic hits on his harmonica (he plays it so impressively well) along with Rosa Imo's delicious home-made Kimchi Jeon (Kimchi pancakes) and Ssal Makgeolli (Korean Rice Wine).
They provide a one-day service of bringing you around Jeju island at an affordable fee of 150,000 krw. Imobu speaks English so he explained some of the places of interest to us. They also have a 10-seater which makes it much more worth the money if you have a large group travelling.
The accomodation was extremely satisfying as they have a fast and easily detactable Wifi hotspot on, a desktop for us to log on to facebook and we also managed to watch a Korean movie on it! One of the rooms is equipped with a basin so it is really convenient if washing needs to be done.
All in all, it was a Daebak (wonderful) experience! :)
On a side note, we realised that there were not many foreigners who have stayed in this guesthouse (mostly Koreans travelling from other parts of Korea) but fret not, they are really nice to us foreigners too! :)
