Jeju, Korea’s largest island, is a tourist destination full of natural beauty and a unique culture. Among the many visitor sites, the Ilchulbong Peak on Mount Seongsan and Manjanggul Cave, designated as natural world heritage sites by UNESCO, stand out.
Ten percent of Jeju’s total area is occupied by the Mount Hallasan National Park, Ilchulbong Peak, and Bijarim Forest, providing a purely natural landscape on the island.
With this report continues the promotion that since last May 1 is being carried out by The Diplomat and the Embassy of South Korea on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the Asian country and Spain, which was the first major event celebrating the role as a partner country of Korea in FITUR 2020.
The torreyas trees in the Bijarim forest, the beauty of the Yongnuni Oreum crests, the mysterious underground castle with Manjanggul Cave, the Jeongbang Falls and Wal-chong Art Gallery by the sea, the Teddy Bear Museum or the natural pieces of Jeju in Jusangjeolli and Cheonjeyeon Falls, are great tourist attractions of South Korea, without forgetting the Yongduam Rock, Samseonghyeol and the Jeju Natural History Museum.
As already reported by The Diplomat, the Spanish Council of Ministers approved on May 19 the referral to the Spanish Parliament of the Air Transport Agreement between the Kingdom of Spain and the Republic of Korea, which will further facilitate Spanish tourism to Korean lands.
