Jeju Island: Sauna

Saturday, August 7 2010

After a long, hot and tiring day, I wanted to finish it off with a visit to the sauna. I've written about it before, but a Korean "sauna" [pronounced sa-oo-na] is basically a public bath house. After paying an entrance fee, you're given two towels. Go upstairs and undress (completely) and leave your clothes and belongings in a locker. Then proceed to the public showers. There are also various pools of different temperatures where you can soak. The last time I was in Jeju, I spent about 3 hours here, but this time I spent half the time. I went back to the hotel to find Darmesh passed out from exhaustion!
