Jejudo’s infamous Loveland is, in essence, a garden dedicated to sex. The sculpture park is home to about 140 works of art by some 20 Hongik University graduates. And by works of art, we mean huge stone penises and vulvae (yes, we had to look up the plural) and sculptures of men and women engaging in a wide variety of sexual practices, including a giant—and very lifelike—silver woman masturbating herself to orgasm. Defi nitely not for children—in fact, you have to be 18 or over to enter. There’s a playground to keep the kiddies occupied while you check out the park.
EAT> The island of Jejudo is blessed with plentiful seafood, including abalone, which is used to make jeonbokjuk, a hearty abalone and rice porridge. Jejudo is also famous for its citrus fruits.
If Jeju Loveland’s offerings aren’t enough, the island is essentially one big UNESCO World
Heritage site. This writer really likes the sunrise from Seongsan Ilchulbong.
DO> Not that we’re suggesting anything, but you’ll probably want to go with somebody you love.
