[Video] Jindallae (rhododendrons) are the ‘bee’s knees’

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 crisis, many of Jeju’s seasonal festivals and tourist destinations have closed. Meanwhile, though, we would like to highlight some of the island’s natural attractions. We sincerely hope you will visit Jeju once the crisis has passed.

The Korean rhododendron (or jindallae 진달래) is beautiful and very meaningful for all Koreans, a symbol of spring. This particular plant is located right in front of the JTO’s Jeju City office. Fun fact: The rhododendron plant is generally larger and has 10 stamen, compared to five for the azalea, which is deciduous (loses its leaves seasonally).
