A stunningly beautiful island, yet unspoilt, probably because of the effort to get there - a 3.5 hour drive from Seoul followed by a 3 hour ferry ride, which can be choppy so be prepared if you get sea sick. Was lucky to go with...More

Ulleung island is quite out of the way for people who don't speak or read Korean but if you can make it there, it is definitely worth your while. Tourists are mainly local and can be quite crowded during Korea's holiday season. There are many...More

It's located 120 km off the eastern coast of Korean Peninsula. So you need to take an express boat from the nearest port. It takes about 3.5 hours. But it is worthy of visiting there at least once in your life, if you stay in...More

Ulleungdo is one of the best places to visit in Korea with its amazing sceneries and interesting rock formations. Most of the rock formations in the island were created from a volcanic eruption. While our visit was in summer, our guide explained that fall was...More
