Description

Leaving the port you will drive to Sangumpuri Crater, designated a Natural Monument. The grand crater has a circumference of 2km. This is an academically significant research site due to the co-existence of temperate zone forest, subtropical forest, evergreen latifoliate forest, and deciduous latifoliate forest within the crater. Next you will visit Seongup folk village, where the traditional Jeju still flourishes. Here you will find, intact, the Confucian Temple, one of the most famous Korean schools, Government offices, a Stone Grandfather, a mill, the fortress site and tombstones, along with intangible aspects of the cultural heritage such as traditional Jeju folk songs, folk entertainment, local food, independent artisans and the Jeju dialect. The surrounding zelkova and nettle trees create elegant surroundings. Then we will head to an amazing Bulgogi-Korean beef and in the afternoon you will drive on to Seopjikoji. This looks like a natural stone exhibition featuring unusual rock formations. In contrast to other coastal areas on Jeju, the hill was formed by red volcanic ash scoria which lends a unique harmony to the landscape. It is the set of the popular TV series 'ALL IN' and became famous as the location of the movies 'Eye at Down' and 'Danjeokbiyeonsu', which are well known in China as well as locally. Lastly Jeju best sight Seongsan Ilchulbong ("Sunrise Peak"),182m, located near the Seongsan port and surrounded by 99 small rock peaks. The top of the crater looks like a splendid crown floating upon the dark blue ocean. Sunrise as seen from the Peak is among the most beautiful sights on Jeju, and the Peak is one of the foremost tourist attractions due to the scenic views offered by the climb. Finally, before returning to the port, you will have some free time shopping in the DFS.
