History and Nature in East Jeju

South Korea, Seogwipo Guide (B): History and Nature in East Jeju

On my fourth day in Jeju, I was left to my own devices and I went on to explore a bit of the east side of Jeju.

Jeju Folk Village is a large open-air museum showing the different kinds of villages (mountain village, fishing village, shaman village, etc) in Jeju in the 1890s. (For K-drama aficionados, Jeju Folk Village was the filming location for Jewel in the Palace.) There were different kinds of houses, complete with tools, earthenware, and even animals (like a donkey, a cow, and a black pig!). There were also exhibition halls for fishing tools, farming tools, local crafts, and earthenware. It was quite interesting to see how Jeju people lived over a hundred years ago. There are three scheduled 30-minute folk performances (1120AM, 130PM, 330PM) but I did not get to see any of them as I had to leave Jeju Folk Village by 1030AM to catch the bus to Seopjikoji.

Directions by bus: From Jeju Intercity Bus Terminal, take bus 221 to 제주민속촌 Jeju Folk Village bus stop (last stop; 1 hour). ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
