Tour 1
CourseJusangjeolli Cliff - Jeju Chusa Hall & Memorial House of Chusa - O’sulloc Tea Museum
  • Jusangjeolli Cliff
    The columnar joints near the coast in the eastern Jungmun Tourist Complex, where the waves breaks and dark red hexagonal stones make up tall layers, is considered a gift of nature and was designated as Natural Monument No. 443 (12/27/04). If you stand in front of the joints you can see the waves hitting the stones and breaking into white bubbles, which feels as if they carry the sad stories of stone carvers, and the scenery is incredible as when the waves are turbulent they reach a height of about 20m. The place is becoming ever more popular with tourists as they walk around and look at the incredible scenery along with the fresh scent of the sea.
  • Jeju Chusa Hall & Memorial House of Chusa
    The Memorial House of Chusa, was constructed in May 2010 to celebrate the late Chosun Dynasty’s distinguished scholar and artist Chusa Kim Jeonghui’s life and his scholarship and contribution to the arts. It was formerly the Chua Relic Museum, which was built in 1984 as a result of a collaborative effort by Jeju-si’s artists and historians specializing in Jeju Island’s history. However, the exhibition became old, and as it became a part of the cultural heritage designated by the government, public opinion was that it needed to be renovated. As a result, the Memorial House of Chusa was built. Chusa Hall consists of the Chusa Memorial Hall, three exhibition and education halls, storage and others. It exhibits the “Relics of Kim Jeonghui from His Head Family,” which were donated by the Buguk Cultural Foundation and the Chusa Society, along with calligraphy by Chusa on a signboard, Chusa’s letters, and Chusa’s friends' letters, among others. 
  • O’sulloc Tea Museum
    O’sulloc is located at the entrance of Seogwang Tea Garden in Jeju Island. The building itself is the materialization of green tea cup, and it is a place of culture, where tradition and modern east and west are harmonized, and a nature-friendly resting area.
    O’sulloc has the 'O’ as in the interjection Oh!, the origin of sulloc, only sulloc, of sulloc cha.
    It is good to experience everything about Sulloc Cha to understand the traditional tea culture of Korea and green tea.

CourseInternational Peace Center Jeju - Oedolgae - Seogwipo Maeil Olle Market ~ Lee Joong-seop Street

  • Oedolgae

    Oedolgae Rock, 20 m in height, is the first thing that you will see when you look at the rocks surrounding Namju’s Haegeumgang River and the Seogwipo Chilshipri Coast. About 2 km away to the west of Seogwipo City there is Sammaebong Parsitic Volcano and Oedolgae Rock, which stands on a beautiful shore near the mountain, and was formed when a volcano erupted and changed the island’s landscape about 150,000 years ago. Since it is a strong rock carved by wave erosion, it is called a sea stack. At the peak of the island, there are pine trees that are regenerating. The scenery behind Oedolgae Rock just after sunrise is amazing.
