"Southern Haven and Scenic Islands" Koje-do by DSwede

Koje-do Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 57 photos

Goeje is a beautiful spot to visit on the Southern coast of Korea. It is very crowded in the summer and peak holiday seasons. It is best in my opinion to visit during the week if possible and/or during the off season.

Other than the scenic cliffs and secluded beaches, Geoje is known for the museums related to the former Korean War POW camps.

Also, just of the East coast is a private (put open to the public) island which is home to the Oedo-Botania, botanical garden.

For some more general thoughts, please visit my S Korea page.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:There is a large influx of foreigners working in the port area, so western amenities are easier to find.
  • Cons:Public transit may be difficult for foreigners who don't know Hangul, so best have your own car or take taxis.
  • In a nutshell:Rugged coastlines and fresh seafood make Goeje what is is.
