Jeju Province

Jeju-do South Korea

Also known as Cheju Province

Referred to as the Hawaii of Korea, Jeju Do is categorized as a sub-tropic volcanic island, located off the southern tip of the South Korean mainland. The average annual temperature of Jeju is 11.7 degrees. Jeju Island receives a large amount of precipitation throughout the year, thanks in large part to mount Hallasan – the tallest in Korea – at the center of the island, effectively blocking air masses that move in from the coastal areas. 

Jeju is known for its Eco Tourism and is home to breath taking coastlines, volcanic caves, lush forests and fairytale like waterfalls. Although Jeju Island is a beautiful place to visit, it does get rather congested during the peak summer season.
