Hailing a taxi or hiring a taxi driver?

Hi, I'll be travelling to Jeju from 30 June - 3 July (4 days 3 nights). I've found a taxi driver but was made understood that the standard fare is KRW150,000 per day.

Since I'm planning to go for a budget tri, may I know if it's possible to hail a taxi in Jeju and if yes, would a daily cost likely to be more than KRW150,000?

Did you check a hop-on bus, called Jeju City Tour bus also? It's KRW12,000 a day.

If you are alone, I would do the Yeha Tour Bus (can buy through Korea Travel Easy or Trazy). It changes the destinations based on the day of the week etc. Can save a lot of money that way.

But yes, 100-150,000W is the going rate. Check with your hotel or AirBnB as they often have a driver they know and give a better rate.

Do not hail a driver in Jeju. Arrange it before you go.

I haven't been to Jeju since 2001. The harbor side it is easier to hail a taxi. If you are on the resort / beach side where the majority of the waterfalls, etc. are, taxi's are going to be difficult to hail. I stayed at the Hyatt Regency and had a rental car. That is the side I refer to as the resort side.
