Kitchen utensils are the main thing on display at Chefline World.
How could they come up with this idea?
Well Chiefline World has been open for over two years now and can claim the title as being the first Korea-based kitchen utensil museum and theme park.
As you arrive a large frying pan with the name of the place sits outside. Then as soon as you go in the first things you see are more frying pans and pots.
To me as someone who can’t cook it just looks all the same.
“If you want to be a good husband, you need to know how to cook,” said my friend who had opted to join me on this particular trip.
Of course I agree with that but my skill is still very bad.
There are other things to enjoy at Chefline World too. Including an oreum observation deck with waterfall.
This oreum is nicknamed the “Mini Halla Mountain” yet it doesn’t quite look like that.
However from the top of the observation deck you get a wonderful 360 degrees view of the area. Suddenly I wanted to climb them one-by-one including Geomun Oreum.
After the observation deck you can move on into the park containing huge over-sized kitchen utensils. There are larger-than-life spoons, forks, pots, and kettles.
Many people take a photograph with them and it was the first time in my life to have a photograph with a fork.
Going on to the Jeju myth section I learned of Seolmundae Halmang and her large pot for the Five Hundred Generals. I roughly know the story but the explanation was quite good.
You are also able to experience the wildflower hill, the pin wheel hill, and the love lock hill (something similar to the small locks left by couples on Namsan Tower).
We decided to give the electric bikes a go despite them being primarily aimed at kids. 10 minutes costs 3,000 won which is expensive. On the other hand 30 minutes at 6,000 won is better. Yet this is almost as much as the price of admission to Chefline World.
The experience was enjoyable enough.
When doing anything fun times flies and that was soon over.
We returned the bikes and went on to the animal farm to see ponies, deer, and rabbits. There are giant rabbits too which aren’t cute at all. Yet to kids everything is cute. I’m sure they’ll like them.
Finally, one corner of the building has an experience section where you can construct your own frying pan for 9,000 won or 14,000 won depending on the size.
Perhaps Chefline is not the right fit for two young adult male travelers, but for families it is the right thing to fry up and serve.
