Thousands of expatriates residing in Geoje can benefit from the vast number of thriving, and friendly communities that cater to their needs. The country’s second biggest city, Busan, can be accessed within 45 minutes by passing through a bridge, while Korea’s capital city, Seoul, is a four-hour drive from Geoje.
