Strengths:Variety in small doses is apparent on this course. For lovers of the natural night, the Fireflies Reservation is the place to see lightning bugs in all their glory. Before that, Jungmun Beach is always a stronghold on the south coast. Three other spots worth seeing are Baerinae Oreum, Cheonjeyeon Falls, and close to the start of the trail is Yakcheonsa.
Weaknesses:The fact The Marine Corps Trail has been beat up by the angry sea, and still perilously walkable is a bit adventurous for some. However, most would not risk the danger of betraying the detour sign.
English learning opportunities:Jusangjeoli, JTO Duty Free Shop, Cheonjeyeon Pokpo - waterfall, The Marine Corps Trail, Mt. Gunsan, Daepyeong Port
Quotable:“If you are visiting Jeju as a resident or a tourist, a trip to Yakcheon Temple is a great way to experience some local culture. The temple is located near the shore, and Olle walking routes 7 and 8 offer a hiking route for before, during or after your stay.
If, as a foreigner, you feel a serious lack of “Buddha” in your life, a trip to Yakcheon Temple might be just the ticket.” -- Daniel McNamee, Jeju Weekly
