Exploring Jeju Island, South Korea
Jeju Island (Jejudo), South Korea, also known as the “Island of the Gods,” is a popular vacation spot for Koreans and many Japanese. It remains one of the top honeymoon destinations for Korean newlyweds.
The island offers visitors a wide range of activities: hiking on Halla-san (South Korea’s highest peak), catching sunrises and sunsets over the ocean, viewing majestic waterfalls, riding horses, or just lying around on the sandy beaches. Unfortunately, I visited during the fall, which means cold breezy winds preventing us from enjoying the beaches. What we got instead, are refreshing scenic views and relaxing hikes through the hills!
