Jeju doesn't have the sophisticated public transportation systems of the mainland; there's no subway system so buses are your only option. The buses are spacious, cheap (W1,000-3,000), and air-conditioned, but lines and stops are few and far between and the schedule is complicated and only in Korean—even locals have trouble figuring it out. It is possible for the traveler on a shoestring budget to get around the island solely by bus, but it will take some patience and a willingness to ask for directions. The Airport Limousine bus is quick and convenient but it only makes a few stops from Jeju City to Seogwipo.
