Apart from a holiday destination, Jeju is also gaining popularity as a destination for international conferences and meetings because it offers an opportunity to relax & unwind along with business for the travellers. For such business conferences, they have an international convention center called ICC Jeju. It has played host to ASEAN-KOREA Commemorative Summit 2009 and many other international meetings.

For leisure travellers, Jeju offers some really unique attractions like Manjanggul lava tubes, Sangumburi volcanic crater and Jeju Olle Trail. With their recent efforts to boost tourism, Jeju has seen a significant increase in number of travellers, especially from China. The joint efforts with other countries will help drive tourism from other counties as well.

They are actively adopting technology to help travellers and to overcome the language barriers, they have an interpreting solution app so that foreign tourists can communicate easily.
