Take a Look Inside Geoje’s New Jungle Dome

Geoje Island’s newest tourist attraction is about to be unveiled for a preview starting this weekend.

According to Korea Bizwire, the Jungle Dome will open to the public between October 26 and November 3 as a preview prior to the grand opening scheduled for early next year.

During the Geoje Flower festival period, 50 people will be admitted every 5 to 10 minutes from 9 am to 5 pm.

The Jungle Dome is an egg-shaped structure built with 7,500 pieces of triangular glass.

Reaching as high as 30 meters and stretching across 4,468 square meters, the dome houses escalators, an observatory, valleys, a 10m high artificial waterfall, and a skywalk.

The Jungle Dome will be used as a greenhouse to grow 300 different kinds of tropical plants and 7,000 tropical plants.

It is a small jungle, with its entrance shaped like a huge tree trunk, a vertical garden decorated with colorful tropical flowers, and the Mowgli doll, the main character of Disney’s classic cartoon, The Jungle Book.

If you walk the skywalk connected to the cave section, you can see the tropical trees that grow more than 20m in front of you. The last section is equipped with a jungle observatory, so you can see the inside of the dome.

As you descend the skywalk, you will be greeted by colorful palm trees, tropical fruit trees, and stone carvings.

Walking along with the sound of a cool waterfall, you will encounter a 300-year-old Blackboard tree, the representative tree of Jungle Dome that tells the story that wishes come true.

In addition, you can see a bodhi tree called the “Tree of Enlightenment” and a Baobab tree from the novel Little Prince.

Jungle Dome is expected to be opened to the public in spring of 2020.
