  2. I enjoyed reading your posts. Thank you for the travel journal! It has helped me plan my trip to Jeju – I’m going there next week and convinced my parents that we should self-drive instead of take the private driver. But looks like a lot of hiking and walking, I have an infant with me … not sure how that’s going to play out!? Are the drives to each side of the island very long?

      Thanks for the read!
      I would recommend to have at least 2 drivers in a car instead of 1 as it can get pretty tiring for long rides.(and needs more concentration as well since you’re driving on the left instead).
      At the same time, yes, I have to admit that there are alot of hiking and walking involves in Jeju, thus infant prams might not be a good idea.

      Car rides were pretty long unless you’re driving from one area to another, so it might not be a worry for that.

      Hope it helps!
      Have a fun trip over in Jeju~ ^^

    Hi Yyann,

    Came across your blog while searching on Jeju self drive. I think we met before sharing some classes in RP! anyway, I rented a car with Sixt car rental company and was quoted $230ish(economy car) for 4 days of rental. I thought the price was quite reasonable but when i checked with Avis, the price was so much more about $400 for the same car class. I was not able to book a car with KT Kumho yet as the booking frame only open 60 days in advance. I will be travelling in June. Therefore i rented with Sixt and paid in advanced to get the early bird price. However when I google for Jeju self drive car rental experience most shared their experience with KT Kumho & AJ. Did not come across anyone with experience with SIxt car rental. Now im wondering if SIxt car rental is a trustworthy company?

        Hi Julian,

        Yes you need to apply an international driving permit to drive in Jeju!

    Happened to see your post while researching for Jeju island self drive trip. Just want to also know, is there alot of upslope and downslope or difficult terrains during your drive? Cos we are abit worried on the right side driving as this is our first time. Appreciate your advice.

      Hi Jean,

      Actually driving in Jeju is a little tricky. Apart from the upslope, most of the time I was driving along the narrow paths along the coastal for the views.
      Do go slow on the traffic so you won’t have much problems. 🙂
