Here’s a nice little promotion which brings together a celebration of the UK Royal Wedding and the promotion of Jeju Island, that favourite of honeymoon destinations, as a candidate for New 7 Wonders.
Plan your ideal honeymoon itinerary, and then get a chance to realise it.
There’s lots to see on Jeju-do, but one of the attractions which is not heavily promoted by the tourist authorities is Jeju Stone Park – part sculpture park, part open air museum celebrating Jeju’s history through its geology. I’m going there in May to see how it has been developing since I visited its earlier incarnation at Mokseokwon ten years ago. Darren Southcott visited it 18 months ago for LKL too.
A delicate subject: I wonder whether marks will be deducted from your competition entry if you include Jeju Love Land (above) in your dream itinerary…
Whatever, there’s plenty to choose from. I would chose a visit to the lava tubes and a stroll along an Olle.
Here are the details
