Jeju Island has a lot going for it.
The island’s beauty literally came out of chaos – it was created two million years ago from volcanic eruptions that formed craters, caves, and cliffs that are unlike anywhere else in the world, creating an island with a slew of spectacular landscapes.
Jeju also enjoys a subtropical climate, which means you get to enjoy warm and bright summers, clear and snowy winters, and a magnificent burst of colors during spring and autumn. Every season gives Jeju a different vibe, which will have you planning your next trip even before you leave the island.
Swimming, hiking, eating, road-tripping – there’s a lot to see and do on this island. It was definitely a challenge to fit the best of it all in a 5-day road trip, but if you enjoy the same things I do – a scenic road trip, gorgeous views, lazy beach days, pleasant hikes, and delicious food – you’ll find this itinerary a helpful guide to planning your holiday.
