KISCA16 Information: Travel, Meals, Accommodation
Posted on October 24th, 2015
Free dorm-style accommodation for Friday and Saturday night is now full. If you prefer to book your own accommodation, the Jeju Aerospace Hotel is approximately three kilometers away.
Important note: Only linens will be provided in the EEC free dorm-style accommodations. We recommend that you bring your own towel and toiletries.
Getting There and Away
In addition to Asiana and Korean Air, inexpensive tickets to Jeju are available from Eastar Jet (often the easiest airline to book online in English), Jeju Air, T’Way, and Jin Air.
Airport pick up/ drop off: Only one bus will be provided from the airport at 20:00 on Friday, March 4. On Sunday, March 6, only one bus will be arriving to the airport at 15:30. The airport bus will be leaving KIS Jeju on Sunday, March 6th at 10 AM (it’s the same bus going on the tour of the island). Please review the schedule which includes a draft itinerary of the tour.
If these times conflict with your flight, please make sure to arrange a taxi which will cost approximately 30,000 KRW. It may be helpful to have the address below:

You can rent a car at the airport or in advance by visiting the car rental agency of your choice. For example, SIXT. Consider requesting an English Navigation system.
Bus: The bus system on Jeju island is not as frequent as Seoul. With the limited time you will be on the island, I don’t recommend it. The bus schedules are available at the airport. The bus that you need to catch to get to the Global Education City (GEC) is #755. To download the 755 bus schedule, click download PDF.Download PDF
