Jeju-do Sanbangsan Carbonated Hot Spring Notices
We booked our tickets online in advance, and paid for Korean Sauna clothes separately on the spot. Children do not have to pay for the clothes if you bring their clothes along.
We were washing ourselves first at the public bath, and the carbon effect was very interesting! I could feel the carbon effect bubbling up my skin.
Next, we headed to the sauna (Jjimjilbang) after changing into our sauna clothes. The sauna was not that huge, but it was a perfect place to get some rest 😊
On the first floor, there is a resting place and a restaurant! We had our dinner here after the open-air bath 😊
We ordered pork cutlet and hot stone pot bibimbap. They even made us a fried egg for our baby!
Jeju Black Pork Cutlet 9,000 won
Hot Stone Pot Bibimbap 8,000 won
Hot Spring Facilities
Next to the restaurant is an indoor sauna, and on the second floor, you can find a sleeping room and a massage chair. Also, there’s a terrace from which you can enjoy the view of the open-air bath and Sanbangsan!
You can find the open-air bath if you enter the indoor hot springs, and use the righthand stairs of the unheated tub.
The open-air bath is a mixed bath, so you have to wear a swimming suit or a t-shirt when you’re using the bath 😊
When you go inside the bath, the mineral water create bubbles around you!
There are sun beds at the outdoor area called “red clay sauna” where you can rest. I was lying on one of the beds before going into the bath 😊
It felt as though I were in a different country, lying down on the sun bed!
Tropical trees were spreading their leaves and the moon was floating on a bright sky! They say this is a common scenery around here.
What’s Special about Sanbangsan
95% of the Korean hot springs are simple springs or sulfur springs. Sanbangsan mountain hot spring on the other hand is known to be the most carbon-free hot spring that is filled with bicarbonate ion and sodium ingredients in Korea~!!
Even in Germany, many doctors prescribe spa treatment to cure chronic skin disorder or cardiovascular disorder.
Sanbangsan mountain hot spring is also referred to as “Gumyeongsoo”, derived from the fact that the water sounds like pigeons cooing, and meaning, “the water that saved people”. It is known as a legendary spring that cure those who drink this water!
In fact, I could feel my skin getting softer after coming out from the carbonated hot spring!
It is also known to be effective at remedying high blood pressure, peripheral circulation disorders, rheumatism and other adult diseases, as well as revitalizing skin and skin care.
When you want to recover from fatigue after traveling around Jeju, and when you’d like to experience the distinctive beauty of carbonated hot spring, we highly recommend you to visit this place!
