It was really a last minute decision to plan a visit to Jeju Island after BIGBANG Concert in Seoul.
As we all VIP know, the leader Kwon Ji Yong has opened a Cafe in Jeju Island last May, and it was a very very very good reason for me to visit the island once again!
So I went on checking the air fare and it was really a good deal with just less than 50,000krw (Approx. RM350) for a round trip from Seoul!
Next, WHERE TO STAY?
I was wondering where should I stay in Jeju Island – Seogwipo? Aewol? Jeju City?
So the answer is Jeju City! Let me tell you why.
Travelling around Jeju Island is pretty time consuming even if you’re driving too! It took at least an hour to travel from one town to another town. So why not staying in the Central?
JEJU SUM GUESTHOUSE
Sum Guesthouse located near to Jeju Airport which is the Jeju City, and what’s best about the location is that, the guesthouse is just few minutes away from Jeju City Bus Terminal!!
If you plan on a budget trip by taking local bus, no doubt this is the place you should consider! With all the language barrier, at least you know every bus heading back to the final station which is the bus terminal.
HOW TO MAKE BOOKING?

Sum Guesthouse is a very spacious guesthouse as compared to most guesthouse in Seoul, and the facilities are really complete (especially for girls!)
The common area & the reception
The 8-Beds Female Dormitory
The 8-dormitory room is more spacious than I thought of.
Every bunk bed gets a personal small cabinet which is really really thoughtful.
The so called ‘beauty desk’ is just outside the room beside the bathroom.
There are 2 dormitories sharing 1 space, so 2 bathrooms are shared between 2 dormitories.
SUM GUESTHOUSE – Breakfast
The breakfast is quite usual as other guesthouse which is Bread, Egg, Juice etc.
One thing to highlight is that the Ramen is FREE too! 😱😱😱
SUM TOUR Services
SUM Guesthouse offers Private Car Rental services too! The rate is really good if you have 4 persons sharing, it’s just 130,000krw/day (RM 455), much cheaper than renting a car on your own and don’t have to worry about losing your way to sightseeing places.
Another interesting tour offer by Sum Guesthouse is the night view tour!
Overall, it was really a pleasant stay in Jeju Sum Guesthouse, I’m not hardselling here but it was the best out of all the guesthouses I stayed this tip to South Korea! ☺️☺️
