"I love Jeju! It's truly a unique place with its distinct culture central to East Asia; a growing community that is rich in history that is moving fast in innovation and diversity. Being a big city person from NYC, I was worried adjusting to island life, but I have no regrets as Jeju has lots to offer. Whether it's the community and culture of bustling Jeju City or its idyllic nature of beaches and lush forests, this volcanic island appeals to all types of people."
