Jeju Island is Korea’s warmest province, as seen in its thriving citrus and tourism industries. But that doesn’t mean we don’t experience an occasional cold snap or two over the winter months.
Recently the mercury has dipped quite a bit, leading some visitors to seek out indoor activities.
Did you know? The tower, which serves as a great observation point for the entire Jungmun area, is 38 meters in height. When you look down on its “flower-like” form, you might see a sunflower. What do you think? Please leave a comment.
Six themed-gardens and a seasonal display are housed under one of the region’s largest greenhouses.
Jeju’s themed garden has a “mysterious” atmosphere to it, while the others are self-explanatory: a flower garden with trees, plants and vines from tropical and subtropical regions.
There’s an aquatic garden and a cactus garden, each of which reproduces the biosphere and common plants of that particular habitat.
The colder it is outside, the warmer and more inviting the Jungle and Tropical Fruit Gardens appear. Kids also can have fun exploring the thick foliage, and occasionally encounter a dinosaur or other replica.
And since we went in January, the season display had a Christmassy-New Year’s feel to it. Though that may have changed in the coming days, if it hasn’t already.
