JEJU IS­LAND

Three times the size of Seoul and just an hour’s flight away is Jeju Is­land, known for its nat­u­ral beauty. This quiet, idyl­lic des­ti­na­tion is where many South Kore­ans go to un­wind. Get­ting there: From Seoul In­cheon Air­port, take the Air­port Ex­press train to Gimpo Air­port (about half an hour’s ride). From there, do­mes­tic air­lines like Jeju Air and Jin Air of­fer daily flights to Jeju Is­land. Get­ting around: Book a taxi – from 100,000 won ($120) for a half-day tour – to take you around the is­land. But plan where you want to go be­fore­hand and make sure your driver sticks to it.
