Jeju Island Tourist Attractions
As said earlier, there are many tourist attractions in Jeju Island. Some of them are listed below.
It is a waterfall from a height of 22 meters which means “pond of the gods”. The name of this picturesque waterfall on Jeju Island comes from the legend that seven fairies, who served the King of Heaven, came down and bathed in the pond. Thus, a festival of seven fairies is organized every year here. The view of the waterfall is quite beautiful with the water falling from a steep cliff at 3 levels. The sound of falling water is also very soothing.
Hallasan Mountain or Mt. Halla is the highest mountain in South Korea and a dormant volcano. There are well developed hiking trails in the mountains and it is therefore a treat for mountaineers. There is Hallasan National Park in the vicinity of the mountain. In addition, Gweneusma mountain houses, which is the oldest Buddhist temples on Jeju Island.
Manjunggul Cave: This is the longest lava tube in the world and is extremely well preserved. The tube was formed millions of years ago and its view is incredible. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors are only open a part of the total length, but their size will surprise you.
This cliff is located southwest of Depo-dong. It was formed millions of years ago from the lava of Mount Hallasan. The cliff consists of hexagonal and cubic rock pillars. It’s a great place to enjoy the amazing sea views and watch the waves splash.
As mentioned before, Jeju Island is home to many sandy beaches. Jungmun Beach and Emerald Bay are two of the many white sand beaches that line the island. So, the island is really a good place for all those who like to surf, swim or just lie on the beach and enjoy the sun.
In addition to the above, there are many other places to visit on this island, including the Teddy Bear Museum, the Oedolgae Rock, the Green Tea Museum and various temples. Of course, no travel item on Jeju Island is complete without a mention of Korean divers. These women can dive 20 meters under the sea by holding their breath for several seconds. They dive into the sea looking for octopus, seaweed, abalone and sea urchins.
So, whether you’re a nature lover or just want to spend your next vacation on an amazing island, do not miss the Jeju Island tours.
