Taking the Ferry to Jeju Island

To get to Jeju Island, you can either catch the plane or, if you’re feeling adventurous, the ferry.

To get to Jeju Island by plane, most people work it into their trip to South Korea, and would catch a domestic flight from Incheon Airport. Cheapest airlines seem to be Jeju Air, Jin Air and T’Way Air, but check Skyscanner or other apps to compare for the best deal.

If you’re going to be visiting Busan or Mokpo, we highly recommend taking the ferry for a pretty unique and interesting experience. Watch the beautiful little islands rolling by up on deck with the aqua sea is rather an make for a rather enchanting day. See our blog post
