Day 1: Seoul, Jeju
Meet with a driver who will take you to Gimpo Airport to board your flight to Jeju Island. On arrival, you will meet another driver to transfer to your hotel in Jeju. Check in at the hotel and take a rest.
Located southwest of the peninsula Jeju (or Jejudo) is the largest island in Korea. It is associated with the motto -'samda' (literally, the three things in abundance) - which testifies to the importance of three elements: the wind, the rocks and the women. Jeju enjoys exceptional panoramas and a warm climate but also an atypical traditional culture. Known worldwide as a holiday resort, it is also a center for international meetings. Jeju is first and foremost a volcanic island with Mount Halla, a dormant volcano in the center of 36 secondary volcanoes and a seashore of waterfalls and wave-sculpted cliffs. Each season offers its special rejoicing, in the spring the rapeseed fields, in summer its beaches and its annexed islands, in the fall the “miscanthus purpurascens” or flame grass, and in winter the snow-covered trees of Mount Halla. Jeju Island is a must do when you visit Korea. Breathtaking landscapes, nature, sea, and seafood, the Island will amaze you. If you are a nature lover and a hiker this is the right place to be for you.

A wonderful beach of white color sand mixed with large amounts of crushed seashells stretching along the seashore for 5.6 miles and surrounded by cobalt colored seawater and evergreen forests scattered around the vicinity that give it a fascinating beauty.
The most surprising place in this botanical garden may be the caves (known to be the only two-dimensional caves in the world). As a nature lover, you can enjoy the majestic Palm Treed Road, Bonsai Garden, water garden and more.
A small mound located in Gosan-ri with, on top, a small pavilion called ‘Suwoljeong’. The pavilion offers views of Chagwido (an island known to be the most beautiful in Jeju), as well as Songaksan Mt. and Jukdo Island. Below the peak is a small Buddhist temple and ‘Eongal’, a steep cliff which faces toward the sea. Visitors can enjoy mineral water that falls freely from the cliff.
O'sulloc Tea Museum,
Located next to O'sulloc's Seogwang Tea Planation in Jeju, it 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.
Resulting from violent volcanic activity some 700,000 to 800,000 years ago the mountain is, in fact, a huge body of lava. The Sanbangsa Temple and also the Bomunsa Temple, which holds the relics of Buddha, are located on the mountain. Walk along the stone-steps between the two temples and you will find the Sanbanggulsa Grotto.
Also named "The Pond of God," the falls foster a variety of plant life such as the rare ‘solimnan’ reeds. To the east, there is a cave where cold water pours from the ceiling to create the first waterfall. The water gathers into a pool and from there, falls two more times, creating the second and third waterfalls, which then flow into the sea. On the surface of Cheonjeru Pavilion, there is a painting that tells Cheonjeyeon’s legend of the seven nymphs and the mountain god. In May of every even-numbered year, the Chilseonyeo Festival is held here.

Seongeup Folk Village
Renowned for perfectly preserving Korean traditions, the village also boasts many cultural landmarks such as Confucian shrines and schools, milestones and more
Seongsan Ilchulbong peak
Designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site the park rose from under the sea in a volcanic eruption some 100,000 years ago. The crater, about 2,000 feet wide and 300 feet deep, looks like a gigantic crown due to the 99 sharp rocks surrounding it.
Women Divers show
For ages, the sea women of Jeju, an island off the southern coast of South Korea, have braved the treacherous waters of the Korea Strait, even during the frigid winters. Using only flippers and goggles — no breathing equipment — they scour the sea bottom for abalone, conch and octopus.
Jongdalri Shore road
This course is fantastic for the endless natural scenery and the fishy aroma of the sea. It takes in the majesty of UNESCO-designated Seongsan Ilchulbong and breathtaking views of Udo (island).
They are, by tradition, women, nicknamed the Amazons of Asia in a custom that has as much to do with the island’s sad history as its geography.
The cave is one of the finest lava tunnels in the world, is a designated natural monument and has a variety of interesting structures inside including 2 ½ feet lava stalagmites. Only a little over ½ mile of the 8.3 miles is open to tourists. The inside of the tunnel sustains a temperature of 51 and 70 F, creating a comfortable atmosphere. The stone pillars and stalactites are widely spread and the tunnels shows off the cave’s topographical features. "Stone Turtle" is especially eye-catching because it is shaped like Jeju Island.
