Jeju is known for its stunning natural scenery, fine beaches, waterfalls, cliffs, excellent seafood and mild weather. A stay here will be varied and rewarding with much to see and do.
Jeju Island is a place of myths and legends. According to legend, three demi-gods emerged from Samsunghyeol which is said to have been on the northern slopes of Mount Halla and became the creators of the Jeju people who founded the Kingdom.
One in five of the population earns their living from the sea, and in many families, the women have been divers for generations. At 1950 metres/6350 feet, Mount Halla is the highest peak in Korea visible all over the island. Jeju is a popular tourist destination and offers not only good weather and beaches but exceptional natural landscapes.
On arrival, check into your hotel and then commence your sightseeing starting with the Dragon Head Rock where you can see the Haeneo woman divers working to catch seafood and then head to Samseonghyeol Shrine where according to legend, it was here that three demigods emerged from the ground to become the founding fathers of Jeju, the Halla Botanical Garden and the Jeju Folklore and Natural History.
The next day, it’s time to take in some of the stunning beauty of the island. Start with the Sangumburi Crater, an extinct volcano. The crater is 100 metres/325 feet deep. Over 400 species of plants and animals live inside the crater. Next is the Manjang Lava Cave, one of the longest lava tubes in the world. The cave is academically significant as rare species live in the cave and it is considered to be a world class tourist attraction.
After lunch, visit the Seongsan Sunrise Peak which rose from under the sea in a volcanic eruption over 100,000 years ago. With 99 sharp rocks surrounding the crater, it looks like a gigantic crown. The sunrise from the crater is magnificent. Then it’s on to the Folklore Village and finally head to the Jeju “Mysterious Road” which connects 2 highways and earned its name, as objects and liquid appear to roll and flow up the hill instead of down, actually an optical illusion.

You will be met and transferred from your hotel in Seoul to the airport by private van with a local driver in the morning for your flight to Jeju Island. On arrival, you will enjoy half day Jeju tour with your first stop being Hallim Park. This is one of the most popular tourist spots on Jeju Island, located about 33km west of Jeju City and Mt. Hallasan along the beach in Hallim-eup. Next stop is the O'sulloc Tea Museum, located next to O'sulloc's Seogwang Tea Planation in Jeju, which was the first tea museum opened by Amore Pacific in 2001 with the aim of introducing and spreading Korean teas and the traditional tea culture of Korea. Second last stop for the day is the Jusangjeollidae Seaside Cliff, which are stone pillars piled up along the coast and is a designated cultural monument of Jeju Island. Jusangjeolli Cliff was formed when the lava from Hallasan Mountain erupted into the sea of Jungmun. Then last stop for the day the Cheonjeyeon Waterfalls, named "The Pond of God," and consists of 3 sections. Around the falls, a variety of plant life thrives, such as the rare 'solimnan' reeds.
