Abandoned Circus, Jeju

Creepy Abandoned Circus Jeju

Roll up, roll up, for the greatest show in South Korea… A circus is a creepy place at the best of times. When it is abandoned, it is even creepier than usual. On the island of Jeju (South Korea), we were lucky enough to find one such building. From the outside it is normal enough. An abandoned circus, a run-down old building. A place of amusement, a place that you would have brought your children for fun (many years ago)….

Even from the roof it was fairly normal….

Inside was darkness. Our eyes saw little….

Just metres away, outside the dark walls, the world was so very different.

    Hello! Great blog post! I am on holiday in Jeju and was wondering if you could give me an idea of where to find the abandoned circus/ school/ resort. I am into exploring derelict places and to my suprise, Jeju has quite a few. Thanks for any help! :)
