Day 01                Arrive Jeju Island

Welcome to Jeju Island! Upon arrival, meet and greet with our Guide and transfer for lunch.

The Dodu-dong Rainbow Coastal Road is where the sea and sky stretch out seemingly forever. Considered one of the hottest spots on Jeju Island for some picture moments, there are many cafes, and restaurants nearby. We are going to visit one and try the Bingsu – Korean shaved ice dessert while enjoying the beautiful view.

Spectacular scenery awaits you from the summit of Geumak Oreum. Also known as Wangmae, this volcanic cone’s height, shape and crater lake makes an unusual natural landscape.
