Hallim Park is probably the most popular tourist trap attraction on Cheju Island. The sign makes it look like an amusement park, especially with the blue-skinned cartoon characters and Margaret doing her best Photogenic Korean Kid® imitation next to it.

However, it's really a sculpture park and garden. As an early version of their English website used to say, Hallim Park "has good purpose on it, such as a forest, clean water, scenery, etc.; and also, it is the space of rest in a forest to increase the preservation of people's good health." What more could you ask for?
