An important note on Jeju’s updated bus system and this blog post
From August 2017, Jeju Island implemented a new city and intercity bus system. It increased the number of buses in service, while simplifying the routes, fees and numbering system.
Consequently, the contents of this previously published blog post may have changed. We therefore would kindly request that you consult this page for new bus maps in English on VisitJeju.net, and this page on our blog for a chart of the old and new bus route numbers.
If you read Korean, then the province’s official bus system website is a useful and up-to-date resource. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels on Jeju Island!
On rainy days in Jeju, it’s a good plan to check out museums and indoor attractions. If you like cute things, then Teseum (Teddy Bear Safari) may be just the thing for you.
Address: 2159 Pyeonghwa-ro, Aewol-eup, Jeju (제주특별자치도 애월읍 평화로 2159)
Directions by bus: Take bus 782 or 750 from the Jeju Intercity Bus Terminal to Saemaeulgeumgoyeonsuwon (새마을금고연수원) bus stop. Walk for about 7 minutes and you’ll see Teseum.
Teseum is opened from 8:30am to 7pm. General admission fee is 10,500won.
Teseum is also called Teddybear Safari because you can see not only teddy bears, but stuffed animals in different shapes and forms throughout the museum. They are divided into zones, like aqua zone, safari zone, amazon zone, etc.
There is a lot of opportunity to take pictures of these cute stuffed animals.
Aren’t they cute? ^__^
There are miniatures of teddy bears too, like this group of bear workers at an archaeological dig.
Celebrities have even sent messages on these lovely teddy bears.
The animals move around at the aqua zone, making them seem alive.
In the fairyland zone, you can see family stories, like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
One of the most popular photo zones is hands-down, this proposal bear! Would you marry him? ^_~
Do you recognize this rendition of the famous Vitruvian Man by Da Vinci? You can see other teddy bear models inspired by famous paintings.
It’s always nice to see traditional clothes from other cultures and countries. Can you find your country?
After exploring Teseum and seeing all these cute teddy bears and stuffed animals, you may be tempted to bring some home. Stop by the gift shop and you can find them in all shapes and sizes!
If you want to eat a snack, go to the Teseum Food Court for some fried chicken and ice cream.
