What we did in Jeju

We stayed 3 nights in Jeju. I had prearranged with a Korean taxi driver on the 2nd day to bring us around some of touristy sites. To my dismay, he called the hotel to cancel the arrangement at the last minute ! Mind you, I had chosen him because of the good reviews he received. Fortunately, the night shift guy of December Hotel where we stayed, was able to find another driver without any problem. Without transport, you cannot do much in Jeju. For about 8 hours of service, we paid him the standard rate of KRW120,000.

Most of the sites we visited are located in the east as it is impossible to cover everything in one day. What stands out are the iconic “dol hareubang” or “grandfather statues”, giant basalt statues. You will see them everywhere.

Jeju is a popular destination for holidaymakers, local and foreign. If you have not been to Jeju, attempt to visit it once. It is worth it. Just remember, you need transport to move around as transport infrastructure in Jeju is not as comprehensive as in Seoul or Busan.
