Customer Travel Tip: 2 days wasn't really enough to explore everything we wanted to

Liked: Hallasan was by far the highlight

Disliked: it took much longer than we expected to catch buses around the island. It is easy enough to figure out which bus to take where, just by asking. But we ended up having a very long day spent on several buses and not seeing many attractions

Customer Travel Tip: almost all attractions cost some money unlike Busan or Seoul. Also, there is no train system so make sure you have your T card loaded. The bus is not cheap!

Liked: Hello Kitty Island!

Disliked: you have to travel for 1 hr if your hotel is on Jeju and you need to go to Seogwipo (teddy bear museum, folk village, hello kitty island). You will loose precious time travelling. Also, not much food options and shopping area.
