3 Best places to visit during spring

1. Seongsan Ilchulbong Sunrise Peak

Located on the eastern coast of Jeju Island, Seongsan Ilchulbong, also known as Seongsan Sunrise Peak, is a famous volcanic cone designated as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.

The peak itself does not offer canola flowers but you can find breathtaking canola fields near the peak, especially along Gwangchigi Beach.

Tip. If you book Trazy’s Jeju Island Spring Taxi Tour, you will be able to stop by Noksan Road on the way to Seongsan Sunrise Peak, which is a fantastic cherry tree-lined driveway bursting with both canola flowers and cherry blossoms. For more information on the tour, click here.

2. Hallim Park

Hallim Park, located in western Jeju, is a must-visit park with 9 different themed gardens, two lava caves, and Jeju folk village.

While Hallim Park holds flower-related events every month, the park will first kick off with colorful tulips in March, followed by cherry blossoms and canola flowers in April.

3. Mount Sanbangsan

Mount Sanbangsan, located in southern Jeju, is another must-see spring destination, which offers an otherworldly landscape. Set against the backdrop of a unique volcanic formation, the carpets of vivid yellow canola flowers are seriously Instagram-worthy!

Tip. There are several canola fields around Mount Sanbangsan, all of which are private properties. It is absolutely free to see them, but if you’d like to enter the field and take photos, you will have to pay 1,000 KRW in cash. It doesn’t cost much money, so go inside! 😉
