Driving around Jeju Airport
Most of the roads around the airport are small and easy to navigate. We recommend choosing a car hire package that include a sat-nav system, especially if you're planning on doing a lot of exploration during your stay. Traffic in Korea drives on the right-hand side of the road.
Getting to your destination
Most of the places to stay on Jeju Island can be found in one of the two cities. We've put together a quick guide to reaching, driving, and parking in them.
The capital of Jeju Special Autonomous Province, Jeju City offers a good mix of historic and natural attractions. The Wooden Government Offices are worth a look, as is Yongduam Rock: said to be the solidified remains of a water dragon.
It takes about 20 minutes to drive into downtown Jeju City from the airport. The city centre is small enough to walk around, with all of the top sights within a short stroll, so you can leave the car at the hotel while you explore the city. Parking in town is usually free, although there are some areas where you need to pay KRW 2000-3000 (about £1.15-1.70) to park.
This city on the south of the island is where you'll find most of the island's luxury accommodation. Gorgeous beaches are interspersed with towering cliffs. As well as gorgeous beaches the south of the island is also home to the Eros Museum, which has an interesting collection of erotic art.
It takes about an hour to drive to Seogwipu from Jeju Airport. As most travellers to Jeju rent a car, the majority of hotels have free car parking for guests. Free parking in the city centre is ample, although parking charges may apply in some areas. Like Jeju City, Seogwipu is small and easy to get around on foot. If you're spending the day in the city it might be worth leaving the car in the hotel parking lot.
