Jeju-do Tour
Exciting Three Day Excursion

Jeju-do, or Jeju Island is one of the nine provinces of Korea and it is only an hour's flight south of Seoul. It boasts a plethora of tourist resources of insular environment and unique culture and tradition, tracing far back to the ancient Tamna Tribal State. Several small oreum parasitic volcanoes surround Mt. Hallasan, an extinct volcano at the center of the island, which offers bountiful sightseeing options. There is always something wonderful just over the next oreum. The lava landscape, blending odd-shaped rocks and caves, ponds, volcanic humps and craters, and dry lands and great fields of grass, is dotted with diverse and rare floral and fauna species. Jeju island also has natural surprises to discover along the shorelines. An explorer will encounter a fantastic bluff with a waterfall dashing down to the beach, sometimes a long stretch of silver sandy beach, floating isles where the sea touches woolly clouds on the horizon.
