Self-Drive Journey in Jeju Island (Day3-3) – Discover the Inner Beauty of Jeju Island


Sangumburi Crater (산굼부리)
San 38, Gyorae-ri, Jocheon-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-do
제주 제주시 조천읍 교래리 산 38번지 일대
Entrance Fee: 3,000k won

Sangumburi is one of Jeju’s most popular tourist destinations and with good reason, as it is an extinct volcanic crater now filled with lush vegetation. Formed during Jeju’s fiery volcanic past, the crater withstood its violent eruption and is still perfectly shaped, making it unique. Sangumburi is Korea’s Natural Monuments #263 and is a must see for any Jeju visitor. (cr: Jeju Weekly)

Oh! And even though you need to climb up the ‘hill’, this climb is sooooooo much easier because the slope are much wider and less steep. *heehee*


A little pity that we didn’t managed to see the crater as the weather was a little foggy that day. 😦

Another view from the top of the hill. Looks at those mountains at the back!! (>o<)

Trying out the ‘Art Mode’ function in my camera.

Oh! There’s a swing!

Headed back to the car and we continued our journey.
It is a common sight to see windmills in Korea. These windmills were built to generate energy though. (:

Finally we reached!

Ecoland Theme park was only opened back in 2011. The theme was built in a 1800s theme where one could tour around the Gotjawal forest via Baldwin train. This is a good location for families with little kids as well though. (it looks something like our Kranji Reservoir Park)

Getting ready to hop on the train for a ride? ^^


Along the way~

Love this peaceful nature environment. =D

Drove around the city for a quick meal before Calvin and I took our chance to catch the famous non-verbal musical, Nanta.
There’s a difference between the one I watched in Singapore! Catch the show in Jeju if you want to know what happens. 😛

A short summarized post for you guys! Next post will be Baume Couture Boutique Hotel where we spent our last night stay in Jeju. 😦

Stay tuned! ^^

    Hi Yyann,

    just noticed that the addresses shared in your website are different from those from KTO

    For instance, Sangumburi Crater’s was 768, Bijarim-ro, Jocheon-eup, Jeju-si, whereas yours was San 38, Gyorae-ri, Jocheon-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-do ..

    Which one is the correct one to input into GPS?

      Hi Jesse,

      Sorry to mess you up on the address.
      If you’re driving in Jeju island and using the GPS, no worries about it. Just key in the location/attractions Tel no. and it will auto locate to the destination. 🙂

      Hope it helps!

      xoxo,
      yyann
