Why Jeju island is special ?

Jeju Island, also known as the "Island of the Gods," is a popular vacation spot for Koreans and foreigners. It remains the top honeymoon destination for Korean newlyweds, and is also regarded as one of the top honeymoon destinations in the world because of its romantic sunrises and sunsets, mild climate and beautiful sandy beaches. Despite attempts to market the island as "the Hawaii of Korea"


Jejudo is a volcanic island, 130 kilometers from the southern coast of the Korean Peninsula. The largest island and smallest province in South Korea, the island has a surface area of 1,846 square kilometers.


The Jeju Island is a World Heritage Site in South Korea

What to explore at Jeju island?

A giant adult amusement park, Jeju Island has activities galore as well as, some pretty funny oddball attractions to fill your travel itinerary.

The island offers visitors a wide range of activities: hiking on Halla-san (South Korea's highest peak) or Olle-gil(routes), catching sunrises and sunsets over the ocean, riding horses, touring all the locales from a favorite television K-drama, or just lying around on the sandy beaches. Moreover, you can visit Jeju's quirky museums or experience Jeju Island's Natural Wonders. Visitors can keep an eye out for the “haenyeo,” female divers gathering fresh seafood, and the iconic “grandfather statues” displayed outside of many restaurants.

  • You should take the regular precautions whilst hiking: ask locals about course conditions and tell someone where you are going
    Safety
  • Other parts around the south coast, even near Jungmun are rockfall regions. The signs are often not in English, so if you're near a cliff or cave and see an obvious Korean warning sign, this is a fair assumption as to what it says.
    Safety
  • You should seek and follow local advice from the base huts and be sure to depart before the daily course closure time.
