For Jeju, recommend you to stay at this hotel. My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights and enjoyed the stay there. When you email her she will give you a full detail how to get there. Rooms get booked out very fast and I will be staying there again in mid september. Last trip, Sylvia, from the hotel, organised a taxi driver (8 or 9 hours) for us and his name is Mr Goh Seoung Hun.

Please email Sylvia: sylviahj@hotmail.com

I will try to post you more info where to go and eat in Jeju and Seoul.

Will this be more worth than going to a group tour?
From what I have found out, group tour of 8D Seoul + Jeju is around 1.8K+

I went to a few tour fairs in last 2 weeks and this 1.7-1.8k is approximate the price range.

One of the staff said that cab fair is not cheap in korea and my partner will be bring big luggage and it may not be suitable for free and easy while we are moving around .

A couple of questions.
What is the travelling time needed to travel from Incheon Airport to Gimpo Domestic Airport?
How early do I have to reach before domestic flight to Jeju if I have check-in luggage?
Thanks.

Catch the airport express train from ICN to GMP, takes no longer than 40 mins iirc.
For check in, one hour is fine. Just check with the airline to make sure though.

Thanks. Is the airport express frequency high? I am wondering if a 3 hours buffer between landing at Incheon to boarding the plane at Gimpo feasible?

Thanks. Those information really helps. I do not want to wait at Gimpo for too long as the last 2 flights are an hour apart.

Will be landing in Incheon at about 3.30pm. Both Jeju Air and Eastar have flights at 6.30pm. The next flights for both airlines will be at about 7.30pm.
