5 days in Jeju Island

We plan to spend 5 days 4 nights on Jeju island this Spring. We bought out return flight tickets for RM1415 per pax with pre-selected seats, meals and 20kg checked in luggage from AirAsia. The flight will be about 6 hours from KUL to CJU. It will be a direct flight to the island. I didn’t sign us up for any travelling packages because there were many feedbacks saying that Jeju is a tourist-friendly place to explore.

I have identified several attractions which is outdoor-centred and requires a bit of a drive. Most of the places are located in the south coast and east coast. I am not sure if it is all doable within 5 days, but I’ll list down everything!
