Jeju

The main town on the largest of Korea's islands, Jeju has a volcanic landscape protected by UNESCO.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Hamdeok Beach and Hyeopjae Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Daepo Haean Jusangjeolli Cliff. Change things up with these side-trips from Jeju: Seogwipo (Jeongbang Waterfall & Yongmeori Beach). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Spirited Garden, explore the fascinating underground world of Manjanggul Cave, enjoy the sand and surf at Gwakji Gwamul Beach, and stroll around Hallim Park.
