Jeju island

Experience the Real Jeju with YEHA Tour

Defined by its volcanic landscape full of craters and cavelike lava tubes, as well as its gorgeous coastlines and iconic Halla Mountain, Jeju Island is a must-visit destination on any trip to Korea. And, considering the fact it’s a quick one hour plane ride from Seoul, it’s convenient, too.

Unlike Seoul's subway and bus systems, the island’s public transportation system isn’t very well established. Outside the main city, taxis are fairly hard to come by and buses are infrequent. Renting a car is highly recommended to see the sites, but for those like myself that prefer to sit back and let someone else do the dirty work, YEHA Tour’s private tours are the best bet.

Living the Good Life at Lotte City Hotel Jeju

If you’ve been following Seoul Searching for a while, you might have realized that there has been a significant decline in the number of recent posts. I blame this mostly on the fact that I’ve been blogging full-time for a living, which has kept me pretty darn busy over the past year, to say the least.

Because of this consistent preoccupation, I’ve come to really appreciate small vacays from Seoul and corporate life, and have relied on weekend getaways to help me maintain my sanity from one month to the next.

4 Days with the International Peace March from Jeju to Jiri Mountain

By Dae Han Song

The International Peace March started July 3rd at Gangjeong Village and continues until July 27th – the 60 year anniversary of the Armistice Agreement – when rallies will be held in front of the US Embassy and Military bases in Seoul calling for a peace treaty to finally conclude the Korean War. Along the way, marchers will visit sites of the Korean War and ongoing struggles to reflect upon the connections between war, military spending, and division to militarization, social welfare, and political repression.

Golden Buddha at the Sanbangsan Mountain

Jeju island, located in the South of South Korea itself was formed due to a volcanic activity. The Sanbangsan Mountain, located in the South West corner of the island, was formed some 800,000 years ago with the cooling down of viscous lava from the volcanic eruption. I loved the unique, almost flaky texture and interesting patterns in the mountain.
