Camellia Hill is another Jeju garden treasure

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 VisitJeju.net,  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!

Located in Sangchang Village, Andeok-myeon, the 20-hectare park holds some 6,000 camellia trees and over 500 different species of wildflowers, trees and other plants, like hydrangeas. It’s about an hour by bus to the southwest of Jeju City.
