Jeju Island

Jeju Island, is Korea's largest island (712 square miles), located about 60 miles of the southern coast of South Korea. It is the main island of a group of islands comprising the province of Jeju. Jeju Islands volcanic origin and oceanic climate make it distinctly different from the rest of Korea.
Although there is little temperature fluctuation from summer to winter ( average temperature is 15 Celsius ), Jeju has four definite seasons; thus, it produces a diverse vegetation of seasonal rape fields, mandarin groves and sweet pineapples amid unique topography that includes 1,800 species of vegetation around Mt Hallasan, the volcano that gave birth to the island. The peak of Hallasan, about 6, 400 feet high, forms the highest point in South Korea. Population on the island is just over 500,000 people
Main attractions on Jeju Island for visitors include caves, museums, beaches, craters, maritime parks and stunning vistas. Activities include hiking, horse-back riding, sightseeing boat trips, windsurfing and swimming in the ocean.
Special Events include:
The Fire Festival: The Fire Festival takes place on the day before the first full moon. In preparation for a good harvest, farmers set fire to the dry grass and gardens to rid the fields of mice and insects.
The Folk Festival: The Folk Festival runs from March to December annually at the Tanna Theater in Jeju Folk Town. This stage performance showcases culture and modern art.
Rape Flower Festivals: The Rape Flower Festival is held in April when the island is covered in the cheery yellow blossom.
Transportation to the island is via air or ferry from the mainland of South Korea.
