ITINERARY

Day 1    Arrive Jeju Island

Welcome to Jeju island, where you are in for a treat of the beautiful natural landscape and fresh air. The first order of the day would be a delicious bowl of abalone hot stone pot bibimbap.

After lunch, enjoy a horseback riding activity with the view of Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak, a unique way of seeing the UNESCO World Natural Heritage site. Also known as ‘Sunrise Peak’, Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak is an archetypal tuff cone formed by hydrovolcanic eruptions upon a shallow seabed about 5 thousand years ago.

After dinner, there will be a tea appreciation session at the resort you are staying in.

Meal: Lunch, Dinner

Stay: Chuidasun Resort Tea & Meditation

Day 2    Chuidasun & Experiences

Enjoy a morning of relaxing meditation and yoga at Chuidasan. Later that morning, we shall head off for some fun experiences in picking tangerines! It is tangerine season, so you will be seeing plenty of sweet-tasting tangerines hanging off trees. Taste for yourself why tangerines in Jeju are as sweet as honey. That’s probably why they account for the majority of the tangerine production in South Korea!

After lunch, visit the Seogwipo five-day interval traditional market which is known for providing high-quality service and local produces such as organic agricultural products and fresh seafood and meats. Shopping does not get any more authentic than this!

The last experience for today would be a green tea appreciation session at an authentic green tea farm. Jeju island is well known to produce excellent green tea because of its temperate climate, frequent rainfall, and fertile black volcanic soil.

Meal: Breakfast, Lunch

Stay: Gloucester or Air City Hotel Jeju

Day 3    Forest Healing & Water Therapy

Today’s a day of receiving healing for your soul and body through nature. Start off with a healing nature walk through Seogwipo Forest of Healing. Relax your body and mind as you engulf yourself fully with the sounds of natural flowing water, singing mountain birds, and crisp forest air.

After lunch, relax your muscles with a hydrotherapy session at the WE Hotel with their water-based state-of-the-art types of equipment.

Back to your hotel for a peaceful night of slumber.

Meal: Breakfast, Lunch

Stay: Gloucester or Air City Hotel Jeju

Day 4    Suwolbong & Hwansang Forest

Set off this morning for a nice hike along Suwolbong Peak. Located on the most western point of Jeju Island, this 77m tall volcanic hill is made of various volcanic sediments and surrounded by acres of green fields that face the beautiful sea.

After lunch, visit Hwansang Forest Gotjawal Park where your nature guide shares interesting local stories and points out a variety of plants and animals that cohabit on this natural primeval forest in Jejudo Island. This forest remains cool in the summer and warm in the winter, making it the only place in the world where northern and southern distribution limit plants can coexist.

Indulge in some selfies at Greem café, a café designed with two-dimensional art pieces. In a world where everything is three-dimensional, it is interesting to experience stepping into a place that looks like it has been ripped off a cartoonist notebook.
