    Jeju Island was quite a surprise on my trip to Korea. I thought it was more of a honeymoon destination than an adventure wonderland. So, I was quite surprised and amazed to find a host of natural wonders and attractions on the island. And, the museums were eccentric and fun. I wish I spent more time in Jeju.


  • Lana Smith

    There’s no place on earth quite like Jeju Island. No wonder it has a handful of UNESCO World Heritage Sites!

    Is there a place as beautiful as Jeju Island in Korea? I’ve only been to Seoul, Busan, Nami and Jeju Island, thus far. So, I was wondering if there are more places as beautiful as this island.

    Loveland’s displays are a work of art. Sure, they are a bit wild and exotic, but they are beguiling and extraordinary. If you’re not traveling with kids, this should be on your list of things to do in Jeju.
