December holiday is coming soon and if you are looking for a place to experience winter, do consider Korea 😉 Here’s sharing my winter trip to Korea this year in January (yes i know i’m abit slow haha) but still I think it’s not too late to share these with you guys here.
On my itinerary, I started off from Singapore to Seoul, followed by a domestic flight to Jeju Island to explore the place before heading back to Seoul again. There are no direct flights from Singapore to Jeju, so I got a return ticket from Singapore to Seoul, and purchase a return domestic flight ticket from Eaststar Jet from Seoul to Jeju.
Let the adventure begin! 😀
It’s a morning flight.. soo…. yawnz~
Breakfast on board
and after 7 hours later… here we are in Korea! 😀

As the domestic flight from Seoul to Jeju does not depart from Incheon airport, you will need to head over to Gimpo airport for your flight to Jeju.
There are a few ways of making your way from Incheon to Gimpo and the most convenient and fastest way is to take the AREX Airport Rail service, located at B1. It’s about nine stops from Incheon to Gimpo and the journey is about 35 mins at a price of 3,550 won.

as well as some random photos… hahaha~
Starbucks available at the convenience stores~
Once again, it’s boarding time!
After an hour later, we arrive at Jeju Aiport, waiting for my luggage 🙂 very much like how a budget airport look like.
we booked a driver for our trip in Jeju and the experience was quite sucky, so i shall not share his details here. Not only there is communication barrier, it’s expensive and he expect us to pay for his meal whenever we eat. I was craving for some authentic korea food and some hot soup, so I asked him to recommend us a place to go. However, it took him very long to finally understand what we say, after showing him photos and using google translate.
So we settled at an average restaurant with average food for our already very late dinner before checking in to our 3 stars hotel and rest for the day.
Hi Darren. I’m Dexter. I read about your trip to Jeju. I would like to find out with you on the hotel you stay at Jeju.
1. How long does it takes you to the hotel from airport?
2. How convenience you could enjoy around the hotel, e.g. food, convenience store, etc?
Thank you. Appreciate your time.
Looking forward to your feedback. 😉
I can’t remember the exact distance but it should be about an hour from the airport to the hotel. We booked a driver to drive us there from the airpot.
There is nothing much around that area as it’s actually quite far off from the main area. The reason we picked this hotel was its proximity to the peak for sunrise 🙂
Hi, did you put your large luggage at locker before depart to Jeju? Where did you put?
Hi Natalie, no we didn’t as we took our luggage with us to Jeju 🙂
Hello Darren, good sharing, thanks! Its very informative.
May I ask the transit to Jeju Island after landed Incheon, then take AREX to Gimpo, you booked the Jeju air ticket in advance or?
Hi Wei Kitt! Glad you find the information useful. Yes, air tickets to Jeju was bought in advance 🙂
Hello Darren, what time did you arrive in Seoul Incheon? And what time is your flight to Jeju? Asking as I am planning a trip much like yours from Gimpo to Jeju and I want to be sure I have sufficient time. Thanks for the sharing, I enjoyed reading!
I arrived at Incheon in the late afternoon at 3:30pm and my flight to Jeju is at 7:30pm. 🙂
Thanks and glad you enjoyed reading!
