     Have you ever heard of a place called Geoje? Most people don’t know about Geoje in its entirety or are aware of the tiny island’s proximity to Busan. However, they are not wrong. Yet, ever since the Geoje Bridge that links Busan to Geoje opened in 2010, it has been able to break free from the image of being a distant remote island. Geoje is, in fact, one of the biggest islands in Korea, second only to Jeju Island. Probably didn’t know that, did you? Let’s head on down to Geoje, the land of wonders!

Directions
Heukseok Station (Line 9) - Nambu Terminal Station (Line 3) - Geoje Island (approx. 4h 30mins) - Oedo Botania – Windy Hill – Sinseondae Observatory – Park Jung Hyun’s Marinated Crab - ROGUE Roasting Lab

 

   
 
  • Oedo Botania

    •      Geoje is made up of a total of 62 islands and located four kilometers from land is one of these islands, called Oedo. First of all, let’s find out how to get there. There are many ports located throughout the island in places such as Jisepo, Gujora or Haegeumgang so as to get to this mysterious European-like island, and most of them provide courses to Oedo. Since thriftiness is an important quality when travelling, CAH recommends that you book online in advance to save up on 3,000 won. You never know when that 3,000 might come in handy. Most cruises that take the Oedo-bound course take up to two hours in total, including the hour and a half spent on the island itself. The breathtaking landscape of Oedo was created from the endearing efforts of a loving couple that came to the island around 45 years ago. Covered with a vast variety of rare exotic flora from all around the world, Oedo offers those in need of a break from city life with a heavenly paradise.

  • Windy Hill
    •      A trip to Geoje wouldn’t be considered a proper one unless you have visited Windy Hill. Listed as one of the destinations in “1001 Must-Go Places in Korea before You Die,” Windy Hill brings out the hidden beauty in Geoje. Like a picturesque scene from a movie, Windy Hill has, in fact, been the filming location for TV series such as “Eve’s Garden” and “Merry-Go-Round,” as well as the entertainment program “2 Days, 1 Night.” However, the grand highlight would be the windmill sitting on top of the hill with the cerulean expanse of body glistening below. Let’s enjoy the cool refreshing wind blowing through our hair on top of the hill just like its name: Windy Hill.
