JEJU island, Korea

Jeju Island, designated as Jeju Special Autonomous Province, lies southwest of the Korean Peninsula and is the largest tourist destination in Korea. The whole island was designated as a special tourist zone, and wherever tourists go, they can look upon beautiful scenery. Every year, about 8.7 million people from Korea and abroad visit this fascinating island that measures 73 kilometers across, east to west, and 31 kilometers, from north to south.
Jeju Island earned the UNESCO triple crown, being designated as a World Natural Heritage, Global Geopark, and Biosphere Reserve as well as one of the Seven Wonders of Nature. The climate of Jeju is quite different from the temperate climate of mainland Korea. Since the island has a subtropical climate as well as a subarctic one, there are many peculiar plants that can only to be found on this island. The unique sight of Jeju Island captivates travelers. The scenery that represents this volcanic island of Jeju, such as Jusangjeolli Cliff (columnar joints on the coast) were created by Hallasan Mountain and Oreum (parasitic cones in Jeju dialect). The piedmont area that visitors encounter on their way from the beach to Hallasan Mountain is a gift of nature and the piedmont area on the way to Geomunoreum Volcanic Cone, where Jeju World Natural Heritage Center is located, is worth seeing. Another unique aspect here is the Jeju dialect and lifestyle.
Traveling the 182-kilometer circuit road along the coastline by car, motor scooter or bike is recommended. There is a trail for walking called “Jeju Olle-gil” for those who choose to make a round trip on foot. Jeju Island is implementing more discretionary and diversified policies in politics and economy as well as tourism, and this is what makes Jeju worthy of the name “free international city”

CLIMATE

The climate of Jeju (Jeju-do), an island located to the south of Korea, is temperate humid, with quite mild winters and hot, muggy and rainy summers. Like the rest of Korea, the island is affected by the monsoon circulation: in winter, the northwest cold currents prevail (which are initially dry, but before they reach the island, they have to pass above a stretch of sea quite large), while in summer, hot and humid currents of tropical origin prevail. Spring and autumn are transitional periods, mild and pleasant, especially the month of October.
The rains are plentiful, in fact they amount to 1,500 millimeters (60 inches) per year on the northern coast (the most sheltered, at least in the warm season, which is dominated by southern currents), while they reach 1,900 mm (75 in) on the southern and eastern coasts.
Owing to both the southern location and the influence of the sea, winter in Jeju-do is milder than in the Korean peninsula, but it is also rainier, in addition, the wind can heighten the feeling of cold. There are quite mild periods, with highs above 10 °C (50 °F), which alternate with cold periods, with wind and rain, highs around 5/7 °C (41/45 °F) or less, and possible falls of sleet or snow. However, snowfalls are typically light, as well as night frosts. In January 2016, there has been an unusual snowfall of 12 centimeters (4.7 in), the most abundant since 1984, which led to the closure of the airport, and at night, the temperature dropped to -5.8 °C (21.6 °F).
Summer is hot and humid, though fortunately the sea breeze blows, relieving the heat. There can be periods of good weather, with highs about 32/34 °C (90/93 °F), tropical nights and high humidity, but also periods of bad weather due to the summer monsoon.”

CURRENCY

Korea’s currency is the won. Paper money comes in denominations of 1,000; 5,000; 10,000; and 50,000 won bills. Coins come in 1, 5, 10, 100, and 500 won (1 and 5 won coins are not widely circulated).

Credit cards taken are usually MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Diners Club etc.

You can exchange currency at the airport, hotels, banks, and with private money changers. However, banks will probably provide you with the best rates. (You may want to get a bit of local currency before you leave your home to avoid lines at airport exchange booths.)
