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!
There are so many things to do and places to see in Jeju! How can I find time for it all?
Don’t worry, we got you covered. Keep reading to see how you can save time and transportation fee by getting off at one bus stop but able to see five different attractions (or more)!
Step 1: Take the Limousine Bus #600 from the Airport or Shinjeju (Grace Hotel) if you’re in Jeju City. It has announcements in English, Chinese, and Japanese. The driver can also speak some English.
It has space for your luggage, and comfortable seats for a long ride.
If you already have a T-Money card, you can use it to take the bus and get 2 free (or discounted) transfers. After tapping your T-money card, you will get a ticket.
You can also pay in cash.
The cost of the Limousine Bus depends on the distance you travel.
Limousine Bus #600 goes from the airport to Shinjeju, then down to Seogwipo.
For today’s trip, we will go from Jeju International Airport to Jungmun Tourist Resort Complex. It costs 4,500Won, and takes about 50 minutes. We will be getting off at the Yeonmiji Botanical Garden.
From this stop, you can walk to 5 different attractions within 2 to 5 minutes! Are you ready?
- Right across from the bus stop is Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum.
2. Walking a little further down is the Teddy Bear Museum.
3. Near the Korea Tourism Organization Jeju Office (behind the Teddy Bear Museum and Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum), is Play KPOP Museum.
4. Near Play KPOP Museum is Chocolate Land.
5. Turning left from Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum will take you to Yeonmiji Botanical Park.
BONUS: There are also Monkey Beach (Thai Style Bar), Kraze Burgers, KFC, and Popeye’s in this area.
The design of A Twosome Place and CU stands out among the modern buildings with its traditional Korean style.
Now that you’ve spent a good day exploring these 5 attractions, you can head back home using the Limousine Bus #600. The bus stop is right by Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum.
You can also continue your journey down to Seogwipo by taking bus #600 again, and then go back to Jeju City from the Seogwipo bus terminal.
