Such great happiness in the name of “us”Events on Lunar New Year’s Day

Perhaps you haven’t realized your New Year’s resolutions yet. Well, the next best opportunity to put them into practice is around Lunar New Year's Day. On this annual event, families gather to indulge in the rich traditions passed down from generation to generation. Traditional plays, such as jegichagi (kicking a jegi) or neolttwigi (Korean traditional seesaw), are not as easy as they look. So, our body and mind are separate, but we burst into laughter. Realize the meaning of this traditional holiday through the events in Jeju, such as wearing traditional costumes, sharing food, making lucky bags, and participating in folk dances and friendly contests. Check the event schedule for favorite tourist destinations including Mok-Gwana Government Office, Folklore and Natural History Museum, Jeju Folk Village, and Jeju National Museum. Whatever we do, when we do it together under the name of “us,” the level of happiness is higher!

Healthy happiness which fills body and mindWellness Travel

Not everything on a joyful trip comes from outside. Organizing and planning activities in a cozy, comfortable place can also be the charms of traveling. To unwind after an exciting adventure, treat yourself to some luxury! A cup of warm tea and soothing music! You can loosen tangled thoughts over a cup of tea in a cozy tea house or heal your mind and body with retro music. LP music, where your selection is combined with a DJ’s sensitivity, is an ideal time to let your mind wander.

Or head to a hot spring or heated pool, where a long soak soothingly carries away any worries.

Your intense wish will come trueSeongbul Oreum Volcanic Cone

The origin of the name for this volcanic cone is not clear. People say it is the name of a hermitage in the Goryeo Dynasty or the name of a water spring. We cannot but wonder since some say the mountain body resembles a figure praying and others the rock resembles a figure praying. See for yourself and you decide. Enter at a tourist souvenir sales shop around the volcanic cone. Just check the guide map in the entrance of the volcanic cone before climbing. As you climb, the vegetation changes and carries you to another dimension. Fog adds to the sensation of entering another world possibly inhabited by a Taoist hermit while the landscape of Ttarabi Oreum, Hallasan Mountain, and Seongsan Ilchulbong Tuff Cone are clearly visible from the summit on sunny days. The climb takes approximately 40 minutes.
