Jeju is a magical place known for 3 things: roaring winds, magnificent rocks, and women, since there is a bigger population of women versus men. As one of the host cities of the 2002 Korea/Japan FIFA World Cup, Jeju'sSeogwipo City made the most charming places to host it.
- Jeju is a focal point of international affairs and is able to offer people many kinds of recreational activities with breathtaking vistas, a temperate climate and a unique traditional culture. Located in the center of this volcanic island is Mt. Hallasan (a dormant volcano), which is filled with over 1,800 species of vegetation, scores of deer, and an ecosystem that will surely amaze all.
- Jeju offers unbelievably breathtaking views from coast to coast, ranging from the waterfalls at Hae-anjidae to the naturally sculpted cliffs at JusangJeolli. Tourists can enjoy every season in Jeju with a unique splash of color; the brilliant yellow flowers in spring that spread across the landscape, the golden beaches and sea vistas throughout the summer, the Eulalias light brown wispy reeds flowing in the autumn breezes, and the lovely snow flowers of Hallasan in winter are all must-sees of Jeju.
- One can enjoy these wonders of the world by hiking, bike riding, paragliding, scuba diving, windsurfing, hunting, horseback riding, swimming, and going on boat trips.

- Jeju is more than simply a tourist destination; it is an island full of wonder.
