The World Conservation Congress works to make your experience in Jeju as enjoyable and hassle-free as possible. To this end, the Host Country has established the Official_Housing_Bureau (Hanjin Travel / Jeju Travel & Culture) to make hotel bookings easier and provide shuttle services to and from the International Convention Centre Jeju (ICCJ).
Up to 30 June, registered participants have guaranteed priority on all the accommodation reserved for the World Conservation Congress when booking through the Official Housing Bureau (OHB).
Not sure you can register to the Congress on time? Don’t worry, you can still book your room after that date. Until 5 August, the Official Housing Bureau keeps a reserve of rooms for Congress participants on a first-come, first-served basis.
You can reserve one of the accommodation options listed on the Official Website for Accommodation Reservation. For your convenience, accommodation is divided into several categories:
- Hotels: From 2 Stars to 5 Stars
- Business Hotels: 4.5 Stars
- Condominiums and Resorts
- Family-oriented Hotels
- Low Budget Accommodation
- Templestay, Natural Recreation Forest accommodation
Hotels & Condominiums: Please compare the various hotels and condominiums located in Jeju, ranging from those near the ICC (International Convention Centre) Jeju, to those in central Jeju-city.
Low Budget Accommodation: You can also reserve low budget accommodation options in pensions, motels and Bed and Breakfasts (B&B).
Templestay / Natural Recreation Forests: Compared to other accommodation options, these will help you learn more about Korean culture in an easy and nature-friendly way.
Please note that more detailed explanations for the differences between hotel ratings, rates and categories may be found on the Official Booking Site via accommodation.2012wcc.or.kr/default.asp
