[Jeju Online Supporters] A Survey of Jeju’s Tourist Attraction Part 1 – Shangri-La Yacht Tours

An important note on Jeju’s updated bus system and this blog post

From August 2017, Jeju Island implemented a new city and intercity bus system. It increased the number of buses in service, while simplifying the routes, fees and numbering system.

Consequently, the contents of this previously published blog post may have changed. We therefore would kindly request that you consult this page for new bus maps in English on VisitJeju.net,  and this page on our blog for a chart of the old and new bus route numbers.

If you read Korean, then the province’s official bus system website is a useful and up-to-date resource. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels on Jeju Island!

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.
Shangri-La Yacht Tours is based out of Jungmun Tourism Complex.
While the company offers 30- and 60-minute tours,
 the 60-minute tour is more leisurely in pace,
and allows more time to take in the splendid scenery.
