LET THE JOURNEY BEGIN ...

The Monsant Cafe, Aewol by G-Dragon.

As a VIP, we never really stop following the footprints of the boys, but OFF as a VIP, this cafe is definitely worth your visit if you ever plan to go to Jeju Island!

The Monsant Cafe, located in Aewol, Jeju was set to open in last October 2015, and it's drawing the attention of all the fans around the world as this cafe is run by the leader of a well-known K-Pop group, Big Bang, G-Dragon.

He posted a few pictures of The Monsant Cafe on his instagram, and the view from the cafe, they are all just amazing and stunning! Too bad when the time we were there, the weather was still like winter time :( Couldn't enjoy these beautiful sunset.



And extra information for VIP who wants to get this white cup where G-Dragon posted on his instagram, you might need to order Americano & its confirm to get it LOL. 


Here I had my hot caffe latte on black cup :)

While planning for our trip to Big Bang Made Final in Seoul 2016, we've included Jeju in our itinerary mainly because of this cafe :)

Getting to The Monsant Cafe is easy by public transport if you haven't got any rental car, the bus station to this cafe is name "Han Dam Dong" .(한담)You don't need to worry if you can't read Korean as every bus will have a screen showing each station name.

From Jeju International Airport :
Take Express City Bus 38 > Transfer at Wolrang Entrance, take Intercity Bus 702, 950, 966 > Take off at Handamdong bus station.

Take Express City Bus 37 > Transfer at Wolrang Elementary School, take Intercity Bus 702, 950, 966 > Take off at Handamdong bus station.

We were staying near Jeju Intercity Bus Terminal, hence we took bus #702 towards Gosan. Don't get to the wrong directions though, its gonna consume up your time.

Bus journey is about 50 minutes, when you get off at Handamdong bus station, there's one road in front on your right, follow the street in until you see the beach, then turn right again and you'll come to this Bomnal Cafe, just walk through a small alley beside this cafe and you'll spot The Monsant Cafe.








































Why worth a visit even if you're not a fan of Big Bang? This entire cafe is like a huge piece of art! From the exterior to the interior design, with its perfect location situated in front of the beautiful Handam beach. What more with the exterior large mirror put in a reflection to this whole blue ocean making it looks like a panoramic view!






















Even the outside of the cafe will get you so much photos :D You just wouldn't want to stop taking picture! Now let's take a look at the inner part.





















We were in Jeju for 3 days, we came here on Day 1, and we came back again on Day 2, just couldn't help, I'm in love with this cafe! And these lights were spotted on Day 2, therefore I am not sure whether it turns on every day as the cafe closed quite early at 7pm. Please bear with my hair, too strong wind on that night! :D

What a great idea for a cafe - love the sunset pictures and it is a pity you couldn't take one. But your pictures are great too.
