Try the seaweed and sea urchin soup, raw seafood, barbecued pork from the island’s famous black pigs, and pheasant. A recommended stop is the Countryside Restaurant where you can try five-layered pork!
Manjang Cave and Lava Tubes
A perfect spot to both cool down and explore the natural wonder of Jeju Island, the Manjang cave is over 8km long, with 1km of public walkway space. If you’re not scared of delving into a deep, expansive cave, you can immerse yourself deep into nature. The cave is formed by cooling lava, and its dark, cold, narrow interior may leave you feeling a little spooked. Photo from http://www.visitkorea.or.kr
