    Very busy, small international airport



    Pros: Modern small international airport

    Cons: Very busy, subject to delays due to weather

    I live on Jeju and use the airport a lot. Seoul Gimpo to Jeju is one of the world's busiest routes and with many Chinese tourists to this resort island, you will find it busy every day. If there is disruption due to weather, expect lots of tourists lying on floors. Under these circumstances I believe the airport has allowed overnight stay. Travel in and out of the airport is by frequent bus and taxi – cheap and trustworthy. The airport is expanding slightly. There are restaurants and a cafe and a few shops, plus duty free and like much of South Korea, it's clean and well-run. The airport does close at night, but a trip into Jeju City takes a few minutes by bus and you'll find lots of hotels/motels including luxury – Lotte, Best Western, Howard Johnson. Prices are ok but not cheap.

    First part



    Pros: Can be acsess by various transportation

    Cons: Looks like airport doesn't encourage travelers to sleep in the airport

    (Review by Mio) Hi! Maybe this is initial review until now. I read in the other blogs that said this airort will be closed at 10.30pm, but now its been 11.00 pm and no one force me to leave the building but who knows the rest of the night. Wifi service is quite bad as its not serve a free-Wifi in lower ground. On the other hand, the security of the airport is very safe and undeniable of their efficiency of doing the job. 7-11 closes at 10.00pm

    Closed at night



    Set up with a blanket on benches in domestic departures. At around 11 pm guards told us the airport closed at night and that we needed to leave. Found cheap hotel close.

    Closes a little after midnight!



    International Terminal – I learned this the hard way. The VERY hard way. I was only in Jeju for one night, so I thought it would be much more convenient to stay at the airport since I had a morning flight. I was all settled in with Netflix when an airport worker came up and said the dreaded words, "Airport closed. Go." It was about 12:45am. I had no Korean money (all the ATMs were shut down when I arrived at 9:30pm!), no hotel, there were no more taxis, and I spoke no Korean. So I spent 4 hours waiting outside the airport in the middle of the night until it opened at 5am. That's the main reason for the poor rating. Otherwise, it's small but comfortable. There is a Dunkin Donuts (although you need Korean money). The wifi connection is poor. The duty free shopping is phenomenal. That's one of the main reasons a lot of people come to Jeju. Make sure to take advantage of it, but plan ahead and comparison shop, for sure.
