Recent popular K-drama series like Our Blues has cast the international spotlight on the bucolic charms of life on Jeju. Coupled with the lifting of travel restrictions, demand from foreign visitors is set to grow. It is timely that budget airline Scoot has just newly launched direct flights between Singapore and the Korean island south to the mainland. Flying time is under six hours. What’s more? Quite a few airlines including full-service ones like Korean Air and Asiana have flights departing almost every five minutes during the day to ply the 70-min Seoul-to-Jeju air route (reputably the world’s busiest flight route). Even as a foreign tourist, you are spoiled for choice.
Heading to Jeju for a short getaway – whether from Singapore or the mainland (if you are going to Seoul anyway) has never been easier. Here are some suggestions on what you should cover in Jeju for a short trip.
