From visiting historical sites to finding the best authentic cuisine, travelling is one of life's greatest adventures. Our "Travel Notes" series features travel itineraries from real people as inspiration for your future escapades.
When travelling to South Korea, people often opt to go directly to Seoul — and we understand why; the capital city has a lot of charm. But in recent years, Jeju Island has quickly become an international tourist destination in its own right. This calm island oasis is home to a rich ecosystem that provides a lot of organically grown and ethically sourced ingredients used in best-selling Korean skincare products. Jeju Island is also a popular honeymoon destination for Korean newlyweds, as its serene beauty provides the perfect getaway from the hustle of city life.
