The charming Jeju Island in South Korea is known for many things, including its unique natural resources, three of which have made it into UNESCO’s list of World Natural Heritage Sites. One museum, however, has consistently made it to the list of wackiest, weirdest or most bizarre museums in the world: Jeju Loveland. The outdoor museum or park takes on a theme that is unlike any other in South Korea: sex. Jeju Loveland (also spelled Jeju Love Land) is a sex-themed park that is definitely strange in this country where couples rarely hold hands in public and definitely don’t lock lips in public. The park openly and liberally displays more than 100 sculptures that imply, suggest and directly show acts of love. Be assured of this: Jeju Loveland definitely gets an R rating.
Jeju Island (also “Cheju” or “Jeju-do“) is the largest island in South Korea. Isolated from the mainland Korean Peninsula, Jeju-do is located in the Korean Strait, off the country’s southernmost tip. A map will show that its distance from the mainland and the neighboring country, Japan, is almost the same. Simply put, Jeju-do is a dream island destination that is truly very romantic.

This is the perfect honeymoon island getaway, a dream destination that young Korean couples share. [Read more…]
