    • Photo

    Jeju Glass Castle is an exhibition centre displaying incredible glass art installations. In the expansive gallery, you can see one of the world's biggest glass balls, a towering glass model depicting Jack and the Beanstalk, a tiny glowing town made entirely of glass, and a mystifying mirror room of sparkling lights and reflective surfaces.

    Outside, pretty much everything is made from glass. You can get lost in a labyrinth, see salmon leaping out of a manmade waterfall, and wander around a pumpkin plantation. There's also a forest filled with glass animals – this section is particularly popular with children.

    Alive Museum Jeju is dedicated to the bizarre art of optical illusions. You might feel like a giant as you move through weirdly proportioned rooms with 3D art that makes creative use of light and wind. See paintings jump out of their frames and stand on a rope bridge over a towering canyon.

    Get lost in Alive Museum Jeju’s spectacular mirror room or admire flowers that seem to glow from the inside. A camera is a must to take lots of cool selfies with all the quirky exhibits.

    The ‘koji’ in the name Seopjikoji Beach is Jeju dialect for ‘cape’, or pointed land that protrudes into the sea. It’s a place where you can feel the beauty and wonder of nature, from the volcanic rocks that make up the coastline to jagged rocks that become hidden or revealed depending on the tide. 

    The paths here are well maintained and stroller-accessible, allowing for comfortable walks with the family. The surrounding scenery is picturesque, so it’s recommended for those seeking to capture their next great memory.
