Cheju (Jeju) On a Budget
Cheju (Jeju) Waterfall on Jeju-do, South Korea
Cheju is an island located just off the southern coast of South Korea in the Korean Strait. It is known for its volcanic landscape full of craters and cave-like lava tubes, which many visitors venture to hike and explore. With the main industry invested in tourism, it is a popular vacation spot for Koreans and foreigners alike, and remains the top honeymoon destination for Korean newlyweds.
Visible throughout the island is Hallasan Mountain, a dormant volcano that features hiking trails, nearby Gwaneumsa Temple and a crater lake at the 1,950 meter summit. Exploring the natural wonders of the island provides sight-seeing opportunities like no other. The Manjanggul Lava-tube, for example, reaches 23 meters high-created by lava streams running through. Gimnyeonggul Cave is a similar attraction nearby, though it is for the daring adventurers since it is technically closed to the public.

Seongsan Ilchubong, also known as Sunrise Peak, is a round almost-island-the peak of a tuff volcano that many hike up to watch the sunrise. You will see pictures of it all over the island, and it's about a 25 minute walk to the top. Other popular attractions include beaches like Hyeop-jae and Iho, Jungmun Lava Columns with a cove of vertical boulders that lead to the sea, Cheonjiyeon Waterfall, Hallim Park's botanical gardens and lava caves, and Yeomiji Botanic Garden with a selection of cacti, tropical fruits, flowers, water lilies, and many others for a total of 2000 species of rare plants and 1700 species of flowers and trees.
