Highlights of Jeju Island

Jeju Island, known to Koreans as 'the Island of the Gods', is Korea's principal getaway destination. The short 1-hour flight from Seoul is covered by some 23 airlines, making it one of the busiest point-to-point flight routes in the world! Once arrived one finds myriad attractions - volcanic peaks, rugged coastline, fine beaches, fresh seafood, and an excellent selection of accommodation. Jeju is situated just over 100km south of the mainland, and 455km south of Seoul, so enjoys a marginally warmer climate year round.
