Jeju (city) Travel Guide: 47 reviews and 121 photos

When mainland Koreans wish to go on vacation within their country, their first choice is Jeju island. Volcanic in origin, the land is very fertile which is why there are many farms and orchards that grow mandarin oranges, the main cash crop.

The people who have resided here in ancient times have developed a dialect entirely distinct from Korean. Even their manner of house construction is different, in that stones are held together by mud and the roof is made of hay instead of wood or shingles.

But the most iconic figure from this island is the stone grandfather called 'dolhareubang' that is positioned outside town gates to ward off evil spirits.
