Jeju travel about Five critical local people’s advice

Are you planning a trip to Jeju Island?

Usually, when planning travel, the priority to prepare may vary from person to person. When you make for your trip to Jeju Island, you should carefully take care of these things.

Jeju travel

First, when will you visit Jeju on a few-day schedule?

Jeju Island is the largest island in South Korea. You should check the Jeju Island map or Jeju guidebook before you travel so that you won’t see any loss during your trip.

Foreigners who visit Jeju for the first time at this point stay a lot for two days and three days. However, I feel regretful that it is too short to enjoy the beauty of Jeju Island.

We recommend that it should be at least three nights and four days.
One day is east, one day is west, one day is south, and the last is mountain climbing or relaxing.

When is the best time to visit Jeju Island?

For those who like flowers, the best time to visit is late March to early April. And if you love seeing autumn leaves, October is the best time. Of course, if you’re looking for a low season or a cold place, you won’t regret choosing January or February.

However, summer (third week of July to the second week of August) is the peak season for Koreans of the mainland. In other words, at any time except during the peak summer season, Jeju Island is a unique island.

Second, where to stay in Jeju Island?

Jeju Island divided into Jeju City and Seogwipo City. Jeju City is relatively close to the airport. However, Seogwipo City should travel for at least 1 hour from the airport.

There are a lot of foreigners who decide to stay in Seogwipo City because they want to stay in a quiet place. But one thing is clear: Jeju Island is not a big city, so it is relatively quiet anywhere.

However, there is nothing really to do at night unless it is in Jeju City downtown. Even if you book your accommodation online at your budget, it’s easy.

Very few visitors have moved their accommodation more than three times. One or two visitors may be excellent, but If more than four people have a lot of luggage, it can be challenging to move around.

Third, things to eat in Jeju Island?

The reasons for traveling may have their purposes. Whatever the goal, one thing is clear: you need to experience local cuisine. Jeju Island is famous for black pork and seafood.

The food that locals love to eat is well worth the experience. If you are looking for halal food, we recommend that you search the restaurant in advance by searching online. At Jeju Dongmun fish Market, a traditional market in Jeju Island, the night market opens. It is also well worth a visit.

Halla Arboretum Night Market is also a popular destination for locals. Jeju Folk five-day Market is also a great place to experience local food.

Many restaurants already famous for foreigners can find online. However, the most important thing to check is whether it is a restaurant for tourists or a restaurant frequented by locals.

Fourth, things to at Jeju island during the day?

The tourist attractions of Jeju Island are different from the east, west, and south. East attractions include Manjanggul Cave and Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak. These tourist attractions are UNESCO’s natural heritage attractions.

Some of the places worth visiting are Sangumburi crater, Woljeongri Beach, Seopjikoji, and Folk Village. If you are traveling with children, Maze Land or Aqua Planet can be a good alternative.

Seongsan Ilchulbong

To the west, Hallim Park, Yongmeori Coast, Sanbangsan Mountain, and Songak Mountain are the most famous tourist attractions. Of course, the Green Tea Museum is also a favorite of many tourists if you are traveling with children, Soingook Theme Park, Hello Kitty, Glass Castle, etc.

And if you like climbing and walking, there are Mt. Halla trails and Olle trails that have been much loved by Koreans of the mainland.

Fifth, what to buy in Jeju Island?

Jeju Island is not the right place for shopping. Most things are never cheap compared to big cities.

Jeju specialties are well worth buying. A simple souvenir to commemorate your trip to Jeju Island. It seems that buying is the smartest consumption.

Jeju Island is famous for citrus fruits. Koreans tend to go shopping for Jeju products, including citrus fruits. However, for foreigners, it is wise to experience only enough to eat locally.

Dongmun Market shopping

The best places to buy souvenirs are Dongmun Market and Jeju Folk Five-day Market. If you still need to shop, it’s enough to take a look around the Central Underground Shopping Mall.
