Jeju, South Korea
september & october 2016
Jeju is a South Korean island just off the mainland and one of the most popular vacation destinations among South Koreans. The island has the same world class tech infrastructure as the mainland — with some of the fastest mobile and internet speeds on the planet — but in a paradise setting with beautiful beaches, volcanic landscapes, and Korean culture.
From day one, we will be integrated into Korea's startup, tech, and creative ecosystems via local connectors, co-working spaces, and special events co-hosted by Unsettled (Ad)ventures and local partners. We will also bring plenty of Korean culture (and food) into our lives by hosting guest lecturers, local artists, and Korean philosophers throughout the month.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
South Korea has some of the fastest internet and mobile connectivity in the world, a thriving tech-driven economy, and a startup scene that rivals any innovation ecosystem in the world. This trip is ideal for:

Scenes from Jeju
What is there to do in Jeju?
Jeju's climate and geography is similar to the Hawaiian islands. You can count on unlimited water sports (diving, kite surfing and much more), but given the size of the island (1,848 sq km) there is much more to this popular destination than at first glance.
- Hiking -- including the highest mountain in South Korea, waterfalls, and dominant volcanos
- Beaches -- nearly unlimited tropical beaches with clear water, white sand, and glamorous beach clubs
- Free diving -- with a long tradition, especially among women, Jeju is one of the free diving capitals of the world
- Caving -- go underground and explore the longest lava tubes in the world
- Cycling -- many of the most popular roads have bike lanes, and the laid back 'island time" mentality reportedly makes for friendly drivers
- Culture -- from traditional (food, architecture, several UNESCO World Heritage sites) to pop culture (teddy bear museum, sex museum, etc.) you can find it all
