Jeju Kimnyoung Maze Park
Jeju Kimnyoung Maze Park is the first hedge maze ever to be constructed in Northeast Asia, securing its status as one of the top attractions on South Korea’s island of Jeju. The park, located between other popular island attractions, features a traditional hedge maze and skywalks that offer panoramic views.
Funded by the life savings of an Amercian professor at Jeju University, Jeju Kimnyoung Maze Park highlights important symbols or landmarks of the island. Different parts of the maze are shaped to resemble six different things, which include the coastline of Jeju and a snake’s head.
Some sightseeing tours and shore excursions include stops at the maze, due to its equidistant location between Manjanggul Lava Tube and Gimnyeongsagul Cave. Other attractions usually visited in conjunction with the maze include the Haenyeo Museum and the Sangumburi Crater. Choose a sightseeing tour with included transportation for climate-controlled comfort between attractions.
