Three weeks ago, I squealed in delight when I received an invitation from Rakso Travel to join them for a Familiarization Trip to Jeju Island, South Korea. A gracious opportunity to travel? Of course, I would say yes!
If you’re into Korean Dramas, chances are you’ve heard of Jeju Island before. The island is a filming destination of various K-dramas like “Boys Over Flowers” and “Princess Hours”.
But if you’re not so familiar, here’s a little background on the so-called ‘Hawaii of Korea’, Jeju (or Cheju) is an island located in the lower part of South Korea. It is also one of the nine provinces of the country. The island is a very popular holiday spot and honeymoon destination among Koreans and Japanese because of its picturesque landscapes and unique culture.
And starting this Sunday, Rakso Travel and I will be flying out to Jeju Island via a chartered flight (PAL). We’ll be staying there for four days and three nights, exploring the wonders of this mystic island and possibly get a taste of their local culture and cuisine. I did a few research of the places stated on our itinerary and I can’t help but feel a little excited because there’s a high chance Canola and Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom!
