Jeju Island was ranked the top summer vacation destination for the fourth consecutive year among 16 metropolitan cities and provinces nationwide.
Busan tied for second in the survey, up three notches from 2018.
Consumer Insight, a research agency specializing in travel, surveyed the overall satisfaction level of domestic travel destinations with more than 18,000 people who traveled domestically for more than one night in the summer vacation survey.
The overall satisfaction level was calculated by adding ‘how satisfied with the travel destination’ and ‘how inclined they are to recommend to other people’ in the area where summer vacation was spent out of 1,000 points
As a result, the national average was 676, 9 points higher than last year, the highest score since the start of the survey.
