Hallim Park celebrates this riot of color and scent with a display of an estimated 500,000 plants on the eastern side of its 80-acre location.
It was an overcast day when we visited the park in early January. The weather wasn’t cooperating, but then suddenly something in the wind caught our attention.
As we walked along one of the main park paths, we caught a hint of the perfume-like scent of the daffodils even before we could see them. It grew stronger and more spring-like with each step.
Did you know? First established in 1971, Hallim Park has grown to be one of the premier outdoor garden parks and tourist destinations on Jeju Island. It has nine themed areas which are the venue for a different flower festival (lotus, cactus, camellia, etc.) every month.
When you enter the park, it’s hard not to be overwhelmed by all the things to do and see. But that’s half the fun – exploring!
If you’re keen on seeing the daffodils before the blossoms disappear for another year, I’d recommend visiting them first by turning left at the entrance and walking straight east (you can ask a park employee for directions if you need to).
There are indoor areas and a natural cave system at Hallim Park, too, which are definitely something you won’t want to miss. And as an added bonus, they’re nice and warm!
