    Tip Let’s go on a trip to an island

    Korea is home to over 3,200 islands including Jeju Island, Ulleungdo Island, Baengnyeongdo Island, Wando Island, and Hongdo Island. We recommend planning a trip to one of these beautiful, mystical islands. Typically, visitors will take a ferry or a clipper to travel to these islands. A ferry refers to a large passenger ship whereas a clipper refers to a fast-sailing passenger ship so you can choose the type that suits your preference.
