Jeju Island, formerly Cheju Island, is an island off the southern coast of South Korea, in the Korea Strait, southwest of Jeollanam-do Province, of which it was a part before it became a separate province in 1946. Its capital is the city of Jeju.

How to get there:By plane: Jeju international airport (IATA: CJU) has a total of 23 airlines providing direct flights (thirteen local, ten international). The vast majority of flights to Jeju are from Gimpo (Seoul's domestic airport) or Busan; there are also one direct fights per week to Incheon, seven direct flights per week to Tokyo Narita, seven to Osaka Kansai, four to Beijing, plus flights to Shanghai Pudong, Nagoya, Shenyang, Fukuoka, Dalian and Changchun. Jeju Air  offers affordable flights from Jeju to Seoul Gimpo, Cheongju. Eastar Jet also started operation from Jeju to Seoul Gimpo, Gunsan, and Cheongju. Despite being budget airlines, they offer good service and are willing to change flights (including refunding the difference if you change to a cheaper flight), but they can be a challenge to book flights without speaking Korean.

They take off and land 143,000 times in a year including Boeing 747's using the 3 km runway and Jeju Airport can handle 7.64 million passengers a year. Based on mid & long term airport expansion plans, 375.5 Mil. USD will be invested to expand the air port till 2020. During the first phase of the project up to 2010, they are going to expand the capacity of the taking off and landing to 177,000 times and enlarge major facilities so that they could handle 18.64 million passengers, a year.

Unfortunately, travel between Jeju and North America is not the most convenient. Most itineraries will require either changing airports (likely in Seoul between Gimpo and Incheon), or spending a night in some other city. Your best bet is to try to sandwich the flight to Jeju between time in other cities in Asia.
