soaked in the sights, sounds and tastes of the land of kimchi and K-pop for five days. Here are her mustgo places in South Korea.
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.
