Jeju Island First Timers

Jeju Island is fast becoming a hotspot for poker with JIPT becoming the second brand to stage an event this year with more already scheduled. This is a perfect destination to combine vacation, adventure, and poker all in one trip.

The island is known as one of Asia’s top tourist destinations. Its beauty was formed through volcanic activity, boasting over 360 volcanic cones (oreums) of varying sizes and shapes, creating unique landscapes. With significant erosion, the island features valleys, waterfalls, and stunning coastal cliffs, including the famous Jusangjeolli (columnar jointing) formations that are rarely seen elsewhere on Earth. Needless to say, it is breathtaking in its beauty.
