Jeju’s indigenous folklore and diverse culture can be found in miniature at the Natural History Museum in Jeju City. Exhibits throughout the six halls show off Jeju’s geography, religion, flora and fauna. From there, proceed to the Yongyeon (Dragon Pond) of Yongduam Rock—known for centuries as the playground of dragons. Where the mountain streams meet the sea, the water casts a rainbow among the trees surrounding the Dragon Pond. The cliff in itself is a work of art. Just looking around at the stunning natural surroundings, it is easy to imagine generations of the royal family of the ancient Korean Empire coming here to sit with musical instruments to rest, to be inspired, and to write beautiful poems and songs. The cliff is about 25 feet tall and the trees on the banks of the pool reflect in its stillness. Your last stop will be the Dongmun traditional market, formed in the aftermath of World War II. This popular traditional market has served countless customers in Jeju with diverse items at inexpensive prices.
