Dear thatsme,
As written above, this was just the first day of my 3day journey, and I'm still working on the stories for second and third day, due to a bunch of pics and English translation :(
I would post the links for them once finished. Thanks for your interest

Hi disney,

It seems that Jeju Island (濟州島) is a good place to travel with bicycle. Your 3-day journey was great! I'm looking forward to reading your full story and seeing more beautiful pictures. Thanks for your hard working for showing us your great journey!
I've forwarded the link of your post to the Hong Kong bike forums. Your great story and pictures have made more people in Hong Kong interested in buying an A-bike. :)

Hi Amuro
Thanks for your kind words. As you mentioned, Jeju is good place for bike riding due to few up-hill road and lots of sights to visit. Hope bikers in HongKong like this story.
Anyway, it was a pleasant surprise to see it written in 漢字 :)

Yes, I like the traditional 漢字 names of the places in Korea, Japan and Vietnam because I think there must be meanings and interesting stories behind the names. :)
However, I still cannot get used to call Seoul as 首爾 which we usually call it as 漢城 before. :?

Hi Amuro.
'Seoul' is an ancient name(original Korean word) in Korea. So there is not any exact chinese character with which man can recognize its meaning and express similar pronunciation at the same time. The meaning of Seoul is a capital(京).

Anyway, you know guys??
disney wrote a shout on his blog last year.
"I will tour the whole country with A-bike !!" :wink:

Thanks for your explanation, Binch.
Someone says that 西蔚 is a more suitable Hanja for Seoul. What do you think about this?

Hi Binch,

I found this from wikipeda:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seoul#Chinese_name

Someone said that the hanja "首爾" is pronounced as 수이 in Korean and the hanja "西蔚" is pronounced as 서울. Therefore, 西蔚 is a more suitable hanja for Seoul.
