On August 5, Jeju Tourism Organization organized
an all-day excursion for Jeju Online Supporters.
Online Supporters is a group formed by Jeju Tourism Organization
to bring greater publicity to Jeju’s many tourist attractions through
social networking services (SNS) such as Facebook and Twitter.
In keeping with its nautical theme, the first excursion found Online Supporters
on a yacht tour and a visit to the recently opened Aqua Planet in Seongsan.
