    Clean body, clean mindJeju spa tour

    Spas have a long global history, dating back to at least the ancient Greeks and Romans. The term derives from the town of Spa in Belgium. It soothes your body, softens your tensed muscles, helps to enhance health and to relieve stress. You can enjoy spas at any time of the year but they are perfect for the winter. There are three ways to enjoy a spa in Jeju, to refresh your body and mind.

    Feel dynamic energy from the groundHot springs

    Jeju is a volcanic island and is naturally home to wonderful hot springs, filled with geothermally-heated water. These hot springs are rich with minerals that will refresh your skin and leave you feeling like a new person! Hot springs can enrich your skin, reduce fatigue and improve blood circulation.
    Things to remember: Do not go into a hot spring tub immediately after a meal. Before going into a hot spring tub, wash your body and hair with soap and rinse. Restrain long hair. Water is hot so enter the tub gradually to prevent quickly increasing your blood pressure. If you have high blood pressure or heart disease, avoid quick changes to your body temperature: don’t go straight from a hot spring to cold water or vice versa too quickly. Do not stay in a hot spring for more than 30 minutes. After enjoying the hot spring, do not rinse your body; feel the full effects of the mineral-rich water. Drink water to stay hydrated.

    Unforgettable cultural experienceUnique public baths

If you can overcome fears of public nudity, this is an unforgettable cultural experience. In a public bathhouse you can have someone scrub your body to massage your skin and remove dead skin cells. Inquire at the front desk for this service. You may see Korean patrons scrub down their friends or family members.

    Try out the unique Korean heating system known as “Ondol”Jjimjilbang (찜질방)

    Korea has its own traditional heating system called ‘ondol’; instead of heating the air in the room, an ondol system heats the floor using traditional wood fire. The ondol heating system is the defining feature of a jjimjilbang (literally ‘heating room’), a kind of public bath facility in Korea. A jjimjilbang typically has various different rooms such as iced room, salt room, or stone room, bath tub rooms, a cafeteria, a gym, a massage room, a playground for kids, a sleeping room, an amusement arcade and a noraebang (singing along to music) room. It is the perfect Korean place to chat, play games, or just relax and sleep. Jjimjilbangs are commonly featured on Korean TV dramas, so if you enjoy Korean television you have probably seen them!

    How to fit in like a local: After arriving at a jjimjilbang you will change into standard clothes provided by the facility; a casual T-shirt and pants. Using a towel, make a lamb-head hat and wear it. Koreans make this themselves and wear it for fun. It’s a kind of trendy costume to wear at a jjimjilbang. If you search ‘jjimjilbang hat’ on the internet, you can find tutorials on how to make it. Head to the cafeteria and buy some boiled eggs and sikhye which is a Korean traditional beverage, or perhaps some hot seaweed soup.

    It’s usually difficult to distinguish between boiled and raw eggs at first glance. But if you go to a jjimjilbang, you will see a different type of boiled egg which has a very brown, smoky shell. It is called ‘maekbanseok dalgyal’ or ‘maekbanseok gyeran’. This egg snack originated in jjimjilbang and quickly became a steady seller. The egg white is not white but brown and chewy. They are a bit tough to eat on their own, but they pair perfectly with sikhye. Sikhye is a traditional sweet dessert beverage made by fermenting rice in malt water. It’s tasty and helps digestion. It is usually chilled with chipped ice. The cool drink creates harmony with the warm floor. If you want to have a proper meal, you can order a bowl of seaweed soup. If you haven’t eaten seaweed before, you might be reluctant. But in Korea seaweed soup is a popular delicacy. Koreans almost always have seaweed soup to celebrate birthdays. It is very nutritious, great for skin, and can help women with childbirth due to the high calcium and iodine; this is a cultural remedy in Korea, and originates from Koreans observing whales that ate seaweed after giving birth. Give seaweed soup a try!

    Once you are done eating, have a nice chat or play a simple game with your friends or family. Visit the sauna rooms and lie down on the floor. Nothing will relax you more! Wash yourself off and leave feeling refreshed.
