But book a cheap flight to South Korea, see the thriving city’s sprawling, majestic countryside, and you’ll soon understand why South Korea is very much its own entity with a strong national identity.

If you have a late night out, you can still find transportation however, the taxi fares can be expensive. While in Jeju, the best mode of transportation for tourists is a tourist shuttle bus. These buses are inexpensive, they run every 30 minutes and take you to the major sites around the island. There are two lines that run, one on the east side of the island and one on the west. While in the shuttle, you are given fun facts about each destination.

You can watch a sunrise over a volcano, climb a volcano, see Asia’s only waterfall that terminates directly into the sea, or explore an underwater cave. Another interesting attraction is the human-sized maze you can navigate through.

Getting around Korea

Buses specifically routed to many cities throughout Korea leave from directly outside of Incheon International Airport. Visitors can also choose to fly or take the train between cities; Korail is the major train company. Buses are an excellent way to get around and between each major city. Renting cars isn’t preferable, particularly in Seoul, as the traffic is intense and the driving habits of South Koreans aren’t always the safest or most predictable. Taxis are fairly convenient but can also be a bit pricey.

Korea Travel Information

Proper attention should be paid to being gracious and courteous in the Korean way. Koreans bow to show respect upon introduction, take their shoes off when entering the homes of others, and show extreme graciousness to the elderly. You should be prepared to do the same. And it’s probably best to avoid any political conversations or mention of past wars. Koreans have a strong sense of national pride and may take offense to anything they sense might be a slight encroachment on that, so err on the side of caution and stick to sunnier conversation topics. There are lots of other ins and outs regarding etiquette in Korea, so read up before you go.
