1. Mysterious Forests
There is something alluring about forests and the ones in Jeju definitely deserve a top spot.

2. Lone Tree
You will probably never be able to find this tree on your own. As with many popular lone trees all over the world, many photographers go to Jeju just to shoot this tree. The leaf changes colour and falls as the seasons go by, but it remains photogenic regardless. The vast grass fields surrounding it makes it the perfect place for a peaceful photoshoot with nature.
3. Ctesiphon House
Located not too far away from the Lone Tree, the Ctesiphon house at a local ranch is a popular spot for photoshoots.
