Jejudo (also known as Jeju Island) is the largest island off the coast of the Korean Peninsula, and the main island of Jeju Province of South Korea. The island lies in the Korea Strait, southwest of South Jeolla Province. The island contains the natural World Heritage Site Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes.
Jejudo has a temperate climate; even in winter, the temperature rarely falls below 0 °C (32 °F). Jeju or Cheju Island is a Korean resort destination known traditionally for its remarkable women divers, who harvest seaweed and shellfish with little more than a knife and no breathing apparatis. This practice has spread throughout coastal Korea and Japan and in those areas, men have tended to stay home to raise the children while the women worked.
Me and my close friend Belle experience Jeju Island last May 2016. We had a great time, nice weather when we went there. We stayed at one of the most beautiful hotel in Jeju called Ramada Hotel. See image below. This hotel has a wonderful architecture and lash food buffet during breakfast. Our hotel room package includes Standard room.
at the Ramada Hotel and Bar
Inside the room has 2 queen size bed. One for me and 1 for my friend Belle.
My friend sleep like a baby each night. There was one morning she said….” I don’t feel like going back to Singapore. I wish my life is like this forever.” Ramada hotel I must say, has very good deals when we book it. They can also offer you tours around the Island with guides. If you like the comfort of having someone bring you to places you like to see.

is the result of violent volcanic activity some 700,000 to 800,000 years ago and is in fact a huge body of lava. The cliffs on the southern side of the lava dome are marked with a rich variety of curious formations such as weathering pits and talus scree slopes, some of which are as high as 200m. As its name ‘sanbang’ – literally meaning ‘a cave inside a mountain’ – suggests, this mountain contains a cave, which is located about 150m above sea level and has a spectacular view out over the ocean. Due to its close location to the sea and its high elevation, the peak is often ringed with clouds. The upper slopes of the mountain have their own distinct climatic conditions and are protected for their value for botanical research.
