Take a submarine tour
Jeju is a volcanic island that lies in the southwest corner of the Korean peninsula. Taking a submarine tour is one of the best ways to see the island’s diverse underwater life. The tour usually operates at a depth of about 30 metres, and the submarine travels about 2.8 km in length. The ocean is home to colourful corals, many types of fish and enchanting underwater sculptures.
Love Land is an eccentric and erotic attraction near the Jeju Museum of Art. Founded in 2004, the outdoor theme park has around 140 explicit sculptures created by the students of architecture at Seoul University. If you are travelling with children, there’s a kid-friendly amusement park to distract them while you’re visiting Love Land.
If you’re unclear about the concept of the sculptures at Loveland, here’s a tip: don’t visit the place with your parents! Love Land makes for a great outing with your close friends and offers some rather interesting photos. The sculptures are sometimes shocking, but you will have a great time if you’re not too prudish.

Seopjikoji is one of the most famous capes in South Korea, largely because the cape and its surroundings was the backdrop for several Korean TV series, including Gingko Bed, All In, and One Thousand and One Nights.
The best time to visit Seopjikoji is in April, when canola flowers are in full bloom. You can enjoy views of the ocean at Hyeopja Beacon Fire Station, which stands 4 metres on top of a hill.

Seongsan Ilchulbong, also called Sunrise Peak, is a popular spot for trekking and watching the sunrise. The sunrise however, is not visible every day because it’s mostly foggy at the peak. The climb, however, is an interesting one. It has a trekking route of almost 600 steps. Be sure to take loads of water, warm clothing and snacks in order to make the most of your climb.
