If you and your partner don’t have the time (or the energy) to climb Korea’s highest mountain, then the 1100 road can be a great way to experience the views of the mountain without exerting yourself too much. This road connects the north and south of the island by traveling over Mt. Hallasan and it reaches a peak of 1100 meters above sea level (hence the name of the road). This is more than half way up the mountain itself!
Couples who visit in winter will be able to experience the mountain covered in snow, although a great view of Mt. Hallasan is possible no matter when you visit. If you are really lucky, you may even be able to see roe deer and pheasant on your trip on this road. The 1100 road starts at Jeju International Airport and goes to Cheonjeyeon Waterfalls, Jungmun Tourist Complex, and Jungmun Beach.
Location: Throughout Saekdal-dong and Jungmun-dong, Seogwipo-si
Jeju Mysterious Road, also known as Dokkaebi Road, is an interesting real life optical illusion. It is situated at the start of the Jeju-si side of the 1100 road, about 200 to 300 meters in. The mystery is that if you stop your car and let it roll downhill, the view from outside makes it appear like you are actually going uphill. Both Jeju Museum of Art and Jeju Love Land are located really close by and it well worth a quick stop if you are visiting either of these two places. As well as the optical illusion, there are statues of Dokkaebi along with a parking lot, walking trail, and restroom.
