[Webzine 2] Jeju Villages and Ecological Experiences

Old Jeju houses have no separate main gates but have three Jeongnang (wooden poles laid across at the location of the gate). It was possible since Jeju-do people were very close together and there were no thieves. As such, Jeju’s culture and lives in Jeju are simple but full hearted. If you only look at the beautiful scenery of Jeju and leave, you cannot fully feel Jeju. Visit villages to learn and experience the lives and culture and get one step closer to Jeju.
