Why Visit Jeju Island, South Korea

Escape from the rush of the crowded cities and head to Korea's largest island, breathtaking Jeju (also called Jejudo). Famous for its superb beaches, magnificent landscapes, and majestic waterfalls, this cone-shaped volcano island is not only a popular South Korea landmark but also a holiday destination sincerely cherished by locals.

Apart from being a real paradise for blissful relaxation, Jeju offers plenty of fascinating experiences for those who prefer to be active. During your Jeju tour, let yourself be enchanted by the countless post-card sceneries of the island, get lost among the longest lava tunnels in the world, appreciate the allure of the Cheonjeyeon Falls waterfall, and conquer the peak of the highest mountain in the entire country, majestic Halla-san!

Another unmissable Jeju attraction is the Geumneung Stone Park, full of interestingly shaped statues scattered around the area. Here you can learn more about the eventful story of the island as these rock installations capture the scenes of Jeju's life and history. Moreover, save some time and pop in the lovely Seogwang Tea Garden where you can immerse in the Jeju tea culture and stroll through the vast tea fields.

Seeking for unusual things to do on Jeju Island? During your visit, don't miss the chance to taste local delicacies featuring seafood caught by the legendary Haeneyo (local female divers). You can discover the culture of Haeneyo in the UNESCO-listed Women Divers' Museum. The peculiarity of this still existing "mermaid" community is that they harvest shellfish for a living without oxygen masks or any other equipment!
