Jeju today: Bathed in pale pink cherry blossoms

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!

Jeonnong-ro, Jeju City, April 4, 2017

One of our staff members has been busy traveling around the city today! He’s photographing the full cherry blossoms this bright and sunny Tuesday in advance of possible rain over the coming days. Here are current shots from a couple of sites from the 26th Jeju Cherry Blossom Festival. We hope you enjoy them!

PS: We’ll have photos of Jangjeon’s cherry trees lit with LEDs this evening…

 

Samseonghyeol, the site of Tamna (Jeju)’s mythical foundation, bathed in pink cherry blossoms

Designated and protected as Historic Site 134, Samseonghyeol Shrine is known as the legendary birthplace of three demigods of the Tamna Kingdom (later Jejudo Island) — Goeulla (Go), Yangeulna (Yang), and Bueulna (Bu). The 3 holes that they came out of can still be found at the site bearing the shape of the Chinese character 品.
