If you think that Seoul is too urbanized, you can also consider planning your family vacation to Jeju Island, which is suitable for parents who admire nature. Here you can overlook the sea and enjoy yourself in the green Hallasan National Park. In addition to attending group trips, self-driving travel is also very interesting. In the daytime, you could accompany your parents, and in the evening, there is a black pork street for your dinner.

Inevitably, due to ethnic integration, there are many people with multi-language abilities. Language-communication is not a problem for Malaysians. A family vacation here is super safe!
