South Korea’s most gorgeous island getaway, Jeju Island is a popular holiday spot served by Jeju International Airport and the Jeju Airport Limousine Bus 600.
As soon as you arrive at Jeju, you’ll no doubt want to start exploring this vast, volcanic island famous for its beautiful beaches and lush tropical landscapes.
However, as there is no train network or Subway / metro system on Jeju, it can be a little tricky to get around Jeju Island, including leaving Jeju International Airport (CJU).
The Jeju Airport Limousine 600 bus is the best and most affordable way to travel between the North and South sides of Jeju island.

Jeju Island recommended hotels
Given that most tours and day trips generally depart from either Jeju City or Jeju International Airport, we’d suggest the best place to stay on Jeju Island is in Jeju City or the new town area – that is if you don’t have access to a car.
Recommended Jeju City Hotels include:
Jeju Sun Hotel and Casino
We stayed for a week at the 5* Jeju Sun Hotel and Casino and would highly recommend it – we had a recently refurbished room on the 8th floor that was big by South Korean hotel standards.
The room had a partial ocean view and best of all, it was the very first stop on the main Jeju Island 600 Airport Bus (so around a 10 minute bus ride from the airport).
Jeju Grand Hyatt / Jeju Dream Tower
An opulent 5* star Jeju Island hotel with an outdoor (and indoor) pool, 16 restaurants and 2 spas, the Jeju Grand Hyatt Dream Tower also has 38th floor roof top bar with coastal views.
