Highlights / General details
"Jjimjil" means heat bath to make people sweat using hot air. In some senses, it is similar to a sauna. However, the far infrared radiation emitted from red clay, elvan stones, and germanium heated to a high temperature (over 700 degrees Celsius), passes 4-5 cm beneath the skin and facilitates cell activities and blood circulation.
When you go to a jjimjilbang, you can find gyms, baths, barber shops, playgrounds for kids, karaoke, PC cafes, golf putting ranges, nailcare shops, massage rooms, cafeterias, restaurants and swimming pools. If you have not visited a jjimjilbang, you cannot say that you know Korea.
In the sauna lobby you will receive sauna "outfits" (shorts and shirt) and two small towels. The dry area is for men and women, everyone is wearing a spa outfit. After "jjimjil" in the hot air, soak in hot water and then scrubbing layers of dead skin, a typical Korean cleansing process.
Renewed after this ritual, meet your guide for the drive back to your hotel.
