Jeju (sometimes known as Cheju) is a paradise for couples and honeymooners. Located off the southern coast of South Korea, the island is serviced by an international airport that has regular service from parts of Japan, Shanghai, and mainland South Korea. A big advantage the island has over nearby Korea destinations is its sub-tropical climate. During winter, the northern part of island occasionally experiences light snow in winter while tangerines are being harvested in the southern end.

    Jeju is known for its natural wonders, from waterfalls and beaches to snow-capped peaks. The island has had a unique culture of its own and there are many ways in which you can catch a glimpse of this island's history and traditions.
