Instagrammable Things to do in Jeju

Jeju is a popular holiday destination for locals and tourists alike. It’s South Korea’s largest island with three UNESCO World Heritage sites. Want to catch some waves or chill on the beach, enjoying the light sea breeze? There are more than 15 along this volcanic island. If you prefer walking around, the many oreums, or volcanic cones, do not require much hiking to get to.

It honestly isn’t difficult to find Instagrammable things to do in Jeju, as pretty sights are around every corner. Nevertheless, read on for some tried-and-tested spots!

Snoopy Garden

If you’re a Peanuts fan, you won’t be able to resist Snoopy Garden. The large 82,000sqm museum comprises an indoor Garden House with five themed halls and an Outdoor Garden. In the Garden House, regardless of whether you’re a hardcore fan or indifferent, you’ll notice how well-curated the museum is.

Snoopy comic strips on adventure, love and friendship adorn the walls, and with each exhibit, you’re reminded to relax and slow down.

Around the Gardens, there are setups and props for you to blend into Snoopy’s world. Roast marshmallows atop a campfire, or contemplate the meaning of life whilst leaning against a tree.

Firstly, stepping into Arte Museum Jeju is an ethereal experience. This immersive digital media museum comprises ten zones, each with a nature or art theme. With wall-to-floor displays, each zone feels like a different world.

Secondly, at Arte Museum, the installations are meant to be explored and interacted with. You can contribute to the artwork. For instance, in the Night Safari zone, scan a completed colouring and see it transform into a part of the exhibit.

Lastly, end your tour with a cup of tea at the Arte Tea Bar. The art doesn’t stop, as flowery images are projected onto your table.

Seongsan Ilchubong

via KKday
Seongsan Ilchulbong was created over 5,000 years ago after a series of volcanic eruptions. It was initially a separate island, but a connection to the main island subsequently formed due to a build-up of sand and soil. Standing at 180 meters above sea level, the tuff cone is a sight to behold. Not only has it been featured in films, it has also been designated as a natural reserve.

Don’t fret even if you’re new to hiking, because it is a short 20-minute hike up the mountain to reach the peak. What’s more, at Seongsan Ilchubong, you can watch haenyo freedive into the sea to catch seafood. Haenyo, or women divers, feature heavily in the star-studded Korean drama Our Blues.
