|Jeongbang Waterfall (정방폭포)|
For the last day of our tour, the first attraction we visited in the morning was Jeongbang waterfall. We were brought to the carpark and from there we made our way to the waterfall via some pretty steep stairs! Despite the uneven path and steep steps (which were a killer for C’s poor knees), the air was crisp and fresh, and the view was spectacular (the shoreline, ocean, steep cliffs and yes... even the uneven path).
Situated on a high cliff by the sea, Jeongbang waterfall is the only waterfall in Asia to fall into the sea. Admission fee is 2,000 won for individuals and 1,600 won per person if you are in a group of 10 or more.

When we finally reached our destination, to actually get up-close to Jeongbang waterfall, we had to walk down some (more) steep steps and make our way over a field of rocks/boulders. It was a pretty slippery (and uneven) walk, so make sure you wear footwear with good grip. But the walk was worth it: the sight of the waterfall emptying itself right into the sea which makes it a pretty unique and amazing (since we don’t really have such waterfalls in Singapore).

With no lakes or rivers surrounding Jeongbang waterfall except for the sea and the high cliffs, being near the waterfall was a refreshing experience (with the tiny water sprays from the waterfall hitting our faces and cool rush from the force of the waterfall). There were many people at the waterfall that day, but with some good balancing (on those uneven rocks) and some patience, we still managed to get some good photos.

Victor (from Jejueco) was a good guide as he was patient and gave some commentary about the waterfall. He even helped us take a group photo since it was too challenging to take a wefie with a selfie-stick on the rocky ground next to the waterfall.
