You won’t need filters for these Instagram-worthy spots!

If you’re a fan of K-dramas, you probably first heard of Jeju Island while watching shows like Boys Over Flowers and Princess Hours. Considered a popular holiday destination among Korean locals both on-screen and IRL, the island is known for its natural beauty—think pristine beaches, volcanic landscapes, and unique flora. Here’s a quick guide on how to visit "The Island of the Gods" and where to get the best views.

How to Get There

Philippine passport holders don’t require visas to visit Jeju Island as long as they fly direct to Jeju International Airport. There are, however, no direct flights from any Philippine airport to CJU. Flights from the Philippines usually stop over in either Seoul or Busan, which will require Korean visas. There are two ways to fly to Jeju visa-free:

1. Stop over at Hong Kong. Turn your trip into a multi-city tour by planning a stopover in Hong Kong, which has nonstop flights to Jeju Island via Cathay Pacific, Asiana Airlines, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Air Busan, and Hong Kong Express.

2. Join a packaged tour with a travel agency that charters direct flights. Large travel agencies like Rakso Travel include chartered flights via Philippine Airlines between Manila and Jeju Island in their packages.
