Jungmun Tourism Complex(JTC), not too faraway from the Seogwipo City, gathers thousands of well-off tourists from abroad everyday. Biggest and Most popular tourist spot by far, JTC boasts of lots of attractions and museums it has. As the man-made museums are pushed back on my priority list of sightseeing places, I reviewed the JTC based on the natural attractions it had. Tourists who do not have enough time to travel Jeju Island more than one night can choose this area and spend the day here. My review will focus mostly on Cheonjeyoen Waterfalls and Jungmun Beach.

Guide map near the Cheonjeyeon Falls. I went into waterfalls right away before it closed down at 6. Cheonjeyeon, less famous than Cheonjiyeon and Jungbang, had a reason why it gained less fame. With too many stairs ups and downs, Cheonjeyeon Falls itself was comparatively small. Also tourists only had to watch it from a distance. I recommend this waterfalls for those of you who like climbing the mountains.

After watching the Cheonjeyeon waterfalls, I headed to the Jungmun Saekdal Beach right away. Jungmun Saekdal Beach, especially famous for surfers, had to be visited twice to get some good pictures. I could walk up the stairs to see the view of Jungmun Saekdal Beach or just go down to beach. I did both.

In general, JungmunTourism Complex (or Jungmun Resort) was a great place to visit for foreigners who wanted to see lots of things and luxurious hotels, museum without moving too much. If one could be satisfied by seeing Cheonjeyeon waterfalls and Jungmun Saekdal Beach with good foods and luxurious hotel, this should be your destination in Jeju for a day.
