about Jeju Island
Jeju Island, also known as the "Island of the Gods", is a popular vacation spot for Koreans and foreigners. it remains the top honeymoon destination for Korean newlyweds. The island offers visitors a wide range of activities: hiking on Halla-san(South Korea's highest peak) or Olle-trail(routes), catching sunrise and sunset over the ocean, riding horses.
The local traditional culture stands in stark contrast to the mainland (and much of Asia) as being matriarchal. Stemming from this basis, and for some odd tax reasons, the role of seafood gathering on the island has been dominated by women. As such, a common sight around Jeju's coastline is that of the "haenyo", which means "women diver" in Korean, a figure that has become somewhat iconic of the island. Perhaps even more iconic are the "dol hareubang" or "grandfather statues", giant basalt statues. You will often see them outside restaurants, plus a few are thrown into any tourism site for good measures.
