2022 Spring 1 Night 2 Days Trip to Jeju Island

In December 2021, after a 4-day trip to Jeju Island, I found myself back on the island once again. This trip to Jeju was entirely unplanned, to the extent that it took less than 24 hours from conception to execution.

While I often travel alone, this trip was a bit different. A friend who had initially planned to visit Jeju suggested we go together, so it deviated from my usual solo adventures.

“2022, 2-Day Trip to Jeju Island”

This Jeju trip took place from March 16th to 17th, lasting for just one night and two days. Typically, a trip to Jeju involves a minimum of 3 days and 2 nights. However, due to the impromptu nature of this trip, it was considerably shorter.

Luckily, Jeju was in its off-season during this period, which had financial advantages. To give a brief breakdown of expenses:

  • Airfare: KRW 101,600 (for two people)
    • Departure: T’way Air on 3/16, 3:30 AM – 4:30 AM
    • Return: T’way Air on 3/17, 9:05 PM – 10:00 PM
  • Accommodation
    • 3/16 – 3/17: Hotel Bridge Seogwipo, KRW 23,942 (for two people)
  • Rental Car: Rainbow Mobility – Through the Kamoa app
    • Period: 3/16, 5:30 PM – 3/17, 7:30 PM
    • Insurance: Fully covered
    • Cost: KRW 18,030 (for two people)
    • Electric Charging Fee: KRW 15,000

The total cost amounted to KRW 158,572, which is the combined expense for two people, averaging KRW 79,286 per person.

In addition to the above expenses, the only other costs were for meals and souvenir purchases. Since meal expenses are unavoidable regardless of travel, they were excluded from the budget. The expenses for souvenirs were also minimal, as I didn’t make many purchases during this trip.

“Places Visited in the 2-Day Trip”

Here’s a summary of the places visited during the one-night, two-day trip:

“March 17th”

Some of the destinations on this trip overlapped with places I had visited before. Gwakji Beach, Saebyeol Bridge, Soesokak Beach, and the Seogwipo Daily Olle Market were those exact places.

Since this wasn’t a solo trip, there was some revisiting of places I’d been before. For these spots, I replaced the write-ups with links to my previous visits.

I look forward to my next trip, wherever and whenever it may be. In the meantime, I’ll continue to live each day diligently.
