There are few better ways to warm up than screaming at the local horses as they battle it out at the Jeju ‘Let’s Run’ Horse Racing Park.
There are only two other horse racing tracks in Korea (one in Seoul and the other in Busan) so it is also a privilege that Islanders enjoy.
You can decide to sit in the stands or rub shoulders with the punters inside. Although your view of the race might not be the best, it is the best way to soak up the atmosphere with the locals.

When the Jeju museum opened in 2011 it was the 32nd “odditorium” in 11 countries and our review states it “elicits childhood memories,” “speaks to all ages” and “delivers several hours of plain fun.”
Explorer Robert L, Ripley collected oddities on his 18 trips around the world and after his death in 1941 he opened a foundation, and then a museum. The Jeju museum contains 700 of these curiosities and plenty more.
