Korea's Travel Deficit with EU Hits Record High Korea has posted the largest-ever travel deficit with the EU, overtaking the U.S. for the first time in 14 years. According to the Bank of Korea on Sunday, the country's travel deficit with the EU reached US$5.47 billion last year. It swelled by $1.44 billion or a whopping 36 percent from the year before. The main reason was two long office holidays in Korea in May and October last year that invited longer trips abroad. Korea's biggest travel deficit had been with the U.S. since 2004 because of the large numbers of business travelers going that way, but last year Europe overtook it for the first time. Next were Southeast Asia and Japan.

So what’s so special about Jeju that justifies the need for 178 departures every day? It must have something – even the soil that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un used to plant a symbolic tree for peace at a recent summit with South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in came from the island. Nicknamed the Hawaii of South Korea, Jeju was declared one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature in a 2011 global poll. Holidaymakers, hikers and honeymooners can’t get enough of the subtropical destination, situated 90km off the southern tip of the Korean Peninsula. Chinese visitors in particular have embraced the “Island of the Gods” by taking advantage of visa-free entry and changes in property rules that allow foreigners to buy apartments, restaurants and hotels. Plans are gaining momentum for a second airport to accommodate a surge in sightseers who come to hike up Mount Hallasan, South Korea’s highest mountain, and to watch the sun rise from the Seongsan Ilchulbong crater. South Korea’s Jeju Island offers hidden pleasures for travellers Tired limbs permitting, it’s also worth tackling the Jeju Olle trail, a series of long-distance foot paths that criss-cross much of the island. Many internationally acclaimed and hugely popular Korean television dramas, such as Dae Jang Geum (“jewel in the palace”) were filmed hereabouts and “set jetters” can busy themselves searching for the tumbling waterfalls, citrus orchards, forests and pristine beaches that served as filming locations. DIY tours are easy to organise – a few minutes of online research will point fans in the right direction. South Korea’s only special autonomous province aims to be carbon-free by 2030, by replacing fossil fuels with hydropower, wind and solar energy.
