Quickly, you can explore the whole area between one to two hours.
Without further adieu, let me describe the main facilities and activities that you and your family or friends can avail of and enjoy during your visit.
As mentioned above, Eco Land Theme Park was built intended for guests of various ages levels and groups of people for relaxation.

Besides the exciting train service, you can find a small lake at this theme park to see other forms of the forest's ecosystem.

Jeju Stone Park (제주돌문화공원)
Jeju Stone Park is mostly showing off the sculpture and other stonework of arts created and found on the Island. You can find various exciting shapes of stones aside from the famous Halbang or Hareubang stone sculpture that seems to be the symbol for Jeju Island.
Geomun Oreum Lava Tube System [UNESCO World Heritage]
Geomum Oreum Lava Tube System is a series of lava tubes due to the eruption that created the Geomun Oreum, a parasatic cone. Geomun Oreum has an altitude of 456 and enlisted as a UNESCO site.
Jeju World Natural Heritage Center (제주 세계자연유산센터)
Jeju World Natural Heritage Center was established to recognize Jeju Island's value as the sole UNESCO World Natural Heritage in South Korea.
Jeju Central Park (제주 센트럴파크)
Jeju Central Park is a theme park that includes five various zones for relaxation and fun activities: Dinosaur Land, World Heritage Land, Fantasy Land. It is excellent for young children and not-so-young adults who want to relax with their kids.
Bengdwigul Cave [UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site]
Bengdwigul Cave is one of the famous caves you can easily explore on Jeju Island. It has a total length of over 4,400 meters that forms like a maze. It is one of the most complex lava tubes ever discovered in the world.
As Eco Land is located on Jeju Island, you need to get there either by plane or ferry from the mainland of South Korea. For example, you need to take a flight from Gimpo International Airport (GMP) to Jeju International Airport (CJU).
From Jeju International Airport, take a taxi to Jeju Intercity Bus Terminal and take bus #730 bound for Jeju Hannam-ri, Seogwipo-si (City).
Then get off at Lee Gipung Missionary Memorial Hall Bus Stop. You will find directions on site and walk for around ten minutes to reach the Park.
It should take over 30 minutes to reach Eco Land from Jeju International Airport. I paid around 30,000 Korean Won during my last visit in 2020.
If you want to travel around the Island freely and more comfortably, you need to rent a local vehicle (either a van or car). It is cheaper than hiring a taxi.
