On September 26, JTO and the online supporters went on a 2nd exploration. Since it was the weekend many were able to attend. We took a trip to Eco Land located in Gotjawal primeval forest, where you can completely experience the ecosystem that surrounds the theme park. Eco Land’s main motive was to have visitors ride a Baldwin train and tour the Gotjawal forest, plants, insects, and animals. Thanks to the train ride, the trip wasn’t exhausting at all.

▲ Boarding the train
Upon entrance, there was a train waiting for us. There is a train every 15-20 minutes, so it isn’t a long wait. As you can see above, you can sit across from each other and the train moves slowly, therefore boarding with children would be safe.
Being able to ride a train in Jeju was quite a new experience. The train was longer than expected; so many tourists were able to board.
The first stop was the lake. There was a bridge along the lake which led tourists to walk along the course. It was a perfect setting to take pictures. Many ads were filmed here.
When you visit, make sure to take a jacket, the weather was quite chilly.
▲ Resting Area
There were frequent resting areas, so families and friends could sit and chat as they enjoy nature.
Along the course, you will see a windmill.

On top of the observatory, the view was splendid~
At the third stop, children can play at the Kid’s Town, have a picnic at the garden, or take pictures at the photo zones.
There are two roads in Eco Land. The long distance takes an hour and the short distance takes about 10 minutes. We took both courses and recommend the longer course.
▲ Floating Café
When you take the longer course you will see a Floating Café. A cup of coffee is 1,000 won and it is self-serve.
▲ Eco Therapy
▲ Natural bedrock water
