Jeju ©
The main town on the largest of Korea's islands, Jeju has a volcanic landscape protected by UNESCO.
Step off the beaten path and head to Spirited Garden and Hallim Park. Do some cultural sightseeing at Alive Museum Jeju and The Islander. Explore Jeju's surroundings by going to Seogwipo (Daepo Haean Jusangjeolli Cliff, Yakchunsa Temple, & more). There's still lots to do: head outdoors with Hamdeok Beach.

For ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Jeju day trip planning site .

Pune, India to Jeju is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of car and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 3 hours traveling from Pune to Jeju. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Tue) early enough to travel to Gyeongju.

One of the most popular tourist destinations in the Republic of Korea, Gyeongju combines a rich cultural heritage with mountain and coastal scenery.
On the 5th (Wed), pause for some photo ops at Seokguram, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Bulguksa Temple, and then admire the masterpieces at Silla Arts And Science Museum. Keep things going the next day: explore the activities along Anapji Pond, examine the collection at Gyeongju National Museum, and then contemplate the long history of Cheonmachong Tomb.

One of east Asia's major cultural and financial centers, Seoul boasts five World Heritage Sites and a huge selection of museums, temples, shrines, palaces, parks, gardens, and glass-and-steel skyscrapers.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Gyeongbokgung Palace and Cheonggyecheon Stream. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to DMZ Haemaru Village and Love Museum. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Myeongdong Shopping Street, shop like a local with Namdaemun Market, take some stellar pictures from N Seoul Tower, and look for gifts at Creative Life Store KEY.
