From July 1 to Aug. 31, a daily limit of 605 vehicles traveling by ferry to Udo Island will be enforced by officials from Jeju Special Self-Governing Province. Concerns about the potential negative impact on the local environment by heavy tourist traffic prompted the decision, according to the government announcement, which added that Udo residents will not be subject to the restriction. Udo Island, which has an area of 6 square kilometers, is 3.5 kilometers off the northeast coast of Jeju Island. More information on the restrictions will be posted at the ferry terminal in Seongsan-ri. — Jeju Gov’t News
