Located off the southern coast of South Korea, the island is serviced by an international airport that has regular service from parts of Japan, Shanghai, and mainland South Korea. A big advantage the island has over nearby Korea destinations is its sub-tropical climate.

    Jeju is known for its natural wonders, from waterfalls and beaches to snow-capped peaks. The island has had a unique culture of its own and there are many ways in which you can catch a glimpse of this island's history and traditions.
