Noksan-ro

Canola flowers and cherry blossoms side by side

If there’s one especially colorful, cherished memory you could take with you from Jeju Island, it might be a trip to Noksan-ro, where small yellow canola and pink cherry blossoms line the road. The road extends about 10 kilometers and is considered to be one of the top 100 most beautiful roads in Korea. Images of this place are certainly representative of Jeju in the spring, and as such attract visitors and locals alike.

Sanbangsan Canola Flowers

A great shot

In spring, they say, Jeju changes into its yellow apparel. That’s thanks to the canola blossoms, which cover large tracts of the island. One area that is particularly noteworthy in this regard is at Sanbangsan Mountain. Here the blossoms contrast pleasantly in the bright sun with the backdrop of white clouds, blue sea and black basalt rock of the mountain. Since the area is quite large, there is no one special place from which to capture that perfect shot… every angle is special in its own way.

Haga-ri Lotus Pond

A landscape that calms your mind

There is an island landscape that’s particularly calming to look at — it’s a pond covered in lotus flowers. The pure whiteness is mixed with an ever-so-delicate shade of pink. You can find this pond at Haga-ri, Aewol-eup, Jeju-si. The leaves of the lotus are large and pillowy as they stretch across the water. There is a wooden deck erected upon the pond, so you can get a closer look.
