Move away from the crowds in Seoul and head over to Jeju Island instead, just off the southern coast of South Korea. A popular destination for Korean newlyweds, fall is widely accepted as the best time to visit, where this largest volcanic island in Korea projects generally wild temperatures. Many enjoy trekking at Hallasan National Park, visiting scenic waterfalls and caves, or simply enjoying the sun, sand and sea at the scenic sandy beaches. It is also home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – Manjanggul Cave, where lava-tubes that go up to 23 meters in the height attract thousands of visitors yearly; and Seongsan ilchubong Peak, where most will stay the night at the connecting Seongsan Village, before making their way up to the Peak’s 600 metre wide crater for stunning sunrises.

Korean Air, China Eastern Airlines, and Asiana Airlines fly from Singapore to jeju island with a stopover at either Shanghai or Seoul. From Kuala Lumpur, China Eastern Airlines, Korean Air, and Malaysia Airlines fly to jeju island with a stopover at either Shanghai or Seoul.
