Whenever Korea is mentioned, various things cross our minds, the division of North and South, the spectacular metropolitan of Seoul, which is the home to global giants (Samsung and Hyundai) the amazing soccer stadiums of the 2002 world cup and the famous Psy (Gangnam Style). But Korea has few heavenly bounties which goes unnoticed, the pearl-like shining islands speckled across it promontory. These less cherished islands can stand the world's best on any given day, most of which are blotched with ethnic fishing towns, while some of them have been bunched into a marine national park and the islands cult following as an idealist heaven has now turn into a legend.
Korea's biggest island best indulges shoreline bums and love birds. It can get a bit too swarmed for your liking in the high seasons of July and August, to stay away from the group organise your jaunting in September when the climate is still smooth. The island's offerings are vast and serendipitous, and you will require less than a week's time to get enchanted. Climb the Hallasan, South Korea's most elevated peak or if you have the thirst for adventures, hike the Jeju Olle trail which offers majestic vistas of the ocean. The island has a massive lava formed cave system at Manjanggul which obliges zeal to explore. The island also has groups of shorelines with diverse tints, which deserve a serene stroll as a principle of natural justice.

This marine park encompasses around 1700 islands and isles and possesses most of the bank of Jeollanam-do. The ships are available to Hongdo and Heuksando from the bustling town of Mokpo (home to a F1 track). The Hongdo is a shocking island encompassed by overwhelming bluffs, surreal rock formations and slopes cut by narrow chasms. Heuksando is a fishing town reached by climbing trails whose magnificence is best understood from the Bonghwadae top and you can get the gist of Dadohae Haesang's name which implies marine archipelago.
