Jejudo (제주도): Romantic Getaway Posted by on Feb 8, 2009 in Uncategorized

Valentines Day is coming up and I thought it would be a good time to mention some romantic destinations in Korea.  For many Korean newlyweds, Jejudo (제주도) is a popular honeymoon hotspot.  Even if you’re not a newlywed, you’ll find that Jejudo (제주도) will look like one of those scenic places that you see on postcards.  There is an abundance of lush vegetation and waterfalls to make anyone love Jejudo (제주도) on first sight.

As soon as you arrive, you’ll see many stone figures called dolharubangs (돌 하르방).  The dol harubangs (돌 하르방) are thought to ward off evil spirits.  Interestingly enough, the dolharubangs (돌 하르방) look like gnomes with grumpy faces.  However if you look at them carefully, (view the picture to the left) you’ll see that they give off a sexual aura.  In fact there are shops that sell miniature dolharubangs (돌 하르방) to tourists.  It’s thought that having this souvenir will cure couples who have infertility problems.

You’ll also find that Jejudo (제주도) has a theme park called labu lendu (라브 랜드) or ‘Love Land’ in English.  The theme park contains a myriad of sculptures and exhibits that express themes that revolve around sexuality.  There is also a daycare center at labu lendu (라브 랜드), for some of the exhibits are inappropriate for minors.

To sum it all up, Jeju Island (제주도) contains many tourists attractions, some of which tend to lean towards the sexier side!  Ok, everyone time to get your mind out of the gutter and time to end this post!
