Jeju Healing Tour Part 1

An important note on Jeju’s updated bus system and this blog post

From August 2017, Jeju Island implemented a new city and intercity bus system. It increased the number of buses in service, while simplifying the routes, fees and numbering system.

Consequently, the contents of this previously published blog post may have changed. We therefore would kindly request that you consult this page for new bus maps in English on,  and this page on our blog for a chart of the old and new bus route numbers.

If you read Korean, then the province’s official bus system website is a useful and up-to-date resource. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels on Jeju Island!

On June 16, 2012, Jeju Tourism Organization offered an event called, ‘Jeju Healing Tour’ for Japanese tourists who were currently in the Jeju Island. The courses for this tour was Jeol-Mul Natural Recreation Forest, Herb Garden (soap making and foot baths), and Jeju Well-being Center (meditation).

Today, we’ll only post about our day at Jeol-Mul Natural Recreation Forest and Herb Garden.

As we arrived at Jeol-mul Natural Recreation Forest,  we wore our blue hats, a gift from Jeju Tourism Organization.

 Our instructor for the trail.
 Before walking the trail, we first began to stretch.
We walked barefooted around the forest.

 We followed this wooden path.
 This forest is full of nature, which is definitely a great place for families.
The next stop was Jeju Herb Garden.
This is the entrance.
This is the admission ticket.


Listening to the instructor on how to make herb soap.

Now the experiment begins!
As the herb soap is cooling down for 30 minutes, we went to go eat.
We ate Flower Bibimbap, which was fresh and delicious.
Then, we ate a huge hand-made hamburger.
Golden foot baths was the greatest satisfaction to the tourists.
Anyone will enjoy being here!
Everyone is busy taking pictures!
Many beautiful flowers at the Herb Garden.
