The annual average amount of rainfall on Jeju is relatively high, compared with those of other places on the same latitude of the earth. About 43% of the annual rainfalls are reported in June, July and August. Jeju has a nickname that is Samdado which means that the island has three things in abundance. Those three things are Seokda (rocks), Pungda (wind), and Yeoda (women). Relatively isolated from the rest of the world, the island’s nature has been well preserved in its prehistoric state. Jeju’s natural environment has been preserved as best as possible.
