Recommended Tour Courses on Jejudo Island

Jejudo Island has a population of over 600,000. As the most popular tourist destination in Korea, the island is easy to navigate on foot or by bike or car. The island’s well-developed roads make traveling a breeze, but since public transportation is under-developed because of the island’s sparse population, visitors are advised to rent a car during their stay if hoping to cover large distances in a short period of time. The island can be divided into four main areas: Jeju City, Seogwipo City, the East, and the West.


* The Four Main Areas of Jejudo Island

 

① Jeju City Area

The Jeju City Area is perhaps the best place to go if you only have a limited amount of time to tour the island. There are many famous museums, historic sites, and beaches in the area that can be reached via public transportation.


Tourist attractions:
☞ Samseonghyeol
☞ Jeju Mokgwana (Former Jeju Government Office)
☞ Jeju Jeolmul Natural Recreation Forest
☞ Yongduam Rock (Dragon Head Rock)

 

② Seogwipo Area

The Seogwipo City Area includes not only the city itself, but also one of the island’s better known destinations: Jungmun Resort Complex. The Seogwipo area has a number of attractions along its coast and the Jungmun Resort Complex offers premier accommodations as well as a number of interesting tourist destinations.

Tourist attractions:
☞ Oedolgae Rock
☞ Soesokkak Estuary

③ East Area

The East Area includes Udo, the biggest (and perhaps, most popular) island surrounding Jeju. The area also has beautiful coastal roads, which wind along a number of natural wonders.


Tourist attractions:
☞ Udo Maritime Park
☞ Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak
☞ Sangumburi Crater
