The city centre is around 2km away from the cruise port.

Buses going to the bus terminal (where other destinations on the island can be reached) depart from the port area.

Buses and taxis are the main method of public transportation. Some locals prefer bicycles to cars, especially in areas outside of the Jeju City metropolitan area.

A small shopping/restaurant area is located a little closer to port (around 20 minutes walk away).
