    Besides all the 'World 7 natural wonder' list, Jeju island is worth visiting if you are in Korea. The island used to be a different country in the old days. They have their unique culture, language and cuisine.

    if you have a couple of days to spare, try Jeju Island. 1 hr flight from Seoul. You'll get a complete different Korea than Seoul. Be it mountains, ocean shores, hiking, scenery, good food, Jeju has got everything.

    In addition to its natural sites such as the extinct volcano and beautiful coastlines, Jeju Do is also quite famous for it being the filming location of hit Korean Dramas such as Full House, All In, and Dae Jang Geum. We were little fans and had the mission to hit a few of these filming locations. That made for a fun touring excursion for us.

    Dubbed 'Korea's Hawaii', the little volcanic dot of Jeju Island (Jeju-do) has an almost mythical status amongst the Korean population as the most beautiful spot in the whole country. It attracts thousands of honeymooners every year, and many thousands more to chill out on its summertime beaches (the water's none too warm, though!), or who come to climb Hallasan, an extinct volcano that's S. Korea's highest peak (although at just shy of 2000 m, it's hardly a monster). Personally, I find Jeju merely OK, and if you're going to visit, be sure it's in summer! Winter, even in Korea's Hawaii, can get pretty bleak.

    It's far away from bustling Seoul city, all the places is preserve for their natural environment. You can see the native Jeju people.

Description

Jeju Island is a volcanic island, dominated by Halla-san (Halla Mountain): a volcano 1,950 metres (6,400 ft) high and the highest mountain in South Korea. The island was created entirely from volcanic eruptions approximately 2 million years ago. Every visitor to Jeju is sure to see their fair share of Dolhareubang (literally "old grandfather stone statues”). Sometimes serious-looking, sometimes ... read more
almost comical, these statues dot the landscape and have become one of the most widely-recognized symbols of the island. Another special sight are the Bangsatap located all around the island: at houses, beaches, and even tourist attractions. These small, round towers made of many stones were thought to ward off evil, protect the village, and bring prosperity to the people. It is because of this deep-seated belief that one can still see Bangsatap near the entrance ways of many buildings. The area also offers World Heritage Sites (such as Hallasan Mountain and Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak) and sandy beaches alongside turquoise waters. A Destination "Not to be Missed".
