How to Fully Enjoy Jeju’s Feast of Spring Flowers

        Jeju’s spring is the first in the nation, with the cheerful yellow color of canola flowers blooming as early

    as January. Till the end of March, the light pink of cherry blossoms, called ‘the messenger of Spring’, is

    mixed with the bright yellow, then when their vibrant colors fade, it’s time for the dark green and pure

    white of barley and buckwheat flowers. The island in spring is like a patchwork quilt of pinks, yellows,

    greens and whites.
      Furthermore, various destinations around the island embrace the floral theme by hosting vibrant Spring

    flower festivals. If you can’t make the festivals, not to worry! Pippi will make sure you don’t miss out on

    this floral wonderland, sending you to some hidden spots where you can take maybe the best photos of

    your trip! 
      OK, let’s explore the Spring flower attractions with Pippi.



  1. Envoking a Sense of Cheerfulness -Yellow Canola Flowers


 

Most notable among the canola blossom attractions is Seongsan Ilchulbong area, with a vast canola cultivation field that stretches along the seaside road to Gwangchigi Beach. The panoramic view of the spring flowers here always makes visitors pause to breathe in the scenery.
Besides Seongsan area, Handam Coastal Walk in Aewol (northwest), Sanbangsan Area (southwest), Hamdeok Seowoobong Beach (northeast), and Gasi-ri Area in Pyoseon-myeon, where the biggest Jeju Canola Festival is held, are especially rich canola in full bloom. But actually, you can enjoy the vibrant landscape in Spring almost all around the island.


The perfect time for canola blossoms is from late March to early April! If you miss this time, then run to Let’s Run Farm, where canola blossoms start popping up a little later, due to the higher altitude there.

 2. The Endless Pink-Colored Flower Rain_Cherry Blossoms

 

Jeju’s cherry blossoms will be in full bloom at the end of March. If you are on Jeju at this time, please do not miss the two main Cherry Blossom Festivals from March 29 to 31, at Jeju City and Aewol-eup respectively. The festival lasts only for 2 or 3 days.
However, there is one more hot spot you should not miss in Spring; it’s “Noksan-ro”. Here, small yellow canola that line the road contrast with the tall pink cherry blossoms for a view that is unlike those found elsewhere on Jeju. The road extends about 10 kilometers and is considered to be one of the top 100 finest roads in Korea. Noksan-ro is certainly Jeju’s symbol of Spring.

 



  Jeju’s Spring Flower Festivals (All festivals were canceled due to COVID-19)


​  ​① Jeonnong-ro King Cherry Blossom Festival: The petals of Jeju’s King Cherry Tree blossoms here are known as the largest

       and most luxurious among all cherry blossoms on the island. During the festival, there will be plenty of activities taking place

       throughout the day, a flea market, and loads of opportunities to eat and drink. The peak of the King Cherry Blossoms lasts for only

       2 to 3 days, but the blossoms can be seen for weeks. 
      · Location (See the map): Samdo-1dong, Jeju city (March 29 (Fri) to 31 (Sun)) 


  ② Jangjeon-ri Cherry Blossom Festival: The 28th festival is one of Jeju’s oldest and best-loved Spring flora festivals. The cherry

      blossom street, which extends about 1.2km, will be car-free during the feast and there will also be a flea market and various activities

      including face painting, a ‘photo zone’, and plenty of food and drink.

      one of areas in Jeju with the largest volumes of canola flowers, and the town housed state-operated horse farms during the Joseon

      Dynasty. That is why you can enjoy 20km-long and 5km-short trekking courses which offer a unique beauty that is quite different from

      other trekking courses in Jeju. A canola flower parade, canola flower cutest baby contest, music festival and activities such as

      pony-trekking, cookie baking, and Bingtteok (Jeju-style Buckwheat Pancake) making are also a feature of the festival.

   Beautiful Cherry Blossom Streets

   Want to enjoy the feast of Cherry Blossoms in quiet and peaceful places? Pippi will guide you to some secret streets that only a few

   people would know.


  ① Jeju National University entrance & rotary: Due to its higher altitude, the cherry blossom trees here bloom a little later than other

      places. The 1km-long street right in front of the entrance of Jeju National University turns into a beautiful cherry blossom tunnel at

      the end of March
      · Location (See the map): 328-2 Ara 1-dong, Jeju-si


  ② The entrance of Yerae-dong: The cherry blossom tunnel here is not well known even to Jeju locals, and this is actually the place

      where Pippi lives! One more spot near here is the main road in Jungmun Tourist Complex which shows luxurious and gorgeous

      cherry blossoms. 
      · Location (See the map): 576-4, Sangyedong, Seogwipo city  · Photo by JTO


  ③ Wimi-ri Ilju Road (East Coast Road): Wimi-ri village, located on the southeast side of Jeju, is well known for the sweetest tangerines

      among all villages on Jeju. And the village is also known as the first place where you can meet the earliest cherry blossoms. If you are

      driving, there is also Ilju Road in the vicinity of Wimi-ri village in Namwon-eup. You can enjoy the cherry-lined route in its rural setting.
      · Location (See the map): 4109-1, Wimi-ri, Namwon-eup, Seogwipo city




 3. Sprinkling the Fields like White Salt - Buckwheat Flowers

 

Do you know that Jeju island leads the nation in buckwheat production? Buckwheat flowers, popped like popcorn, bloom twice a year; late Spring and early Fall. Lee Hyo-seok, a noted Korean novelist wrote, “The buckwheat flowers were starting to bloom, sprinkling the fields like white salt under the pleasant lunar glow.” in his novel “When the buckwheat blossoms” (1936). Spring buckwheat flowers on Jeju can be seen at ‘Gwangpyeong-ri’ and ‘Boromwat’.​ 

 

 

​  ​① Jeju Buckwheat Flower Festival 2019: The festival will be held at Gwangpyeong-ri village, which is known as ‘the first village

      under Mt. Hallasan’ for 2 days. During the festival, you can take part in plenty of activities such as buckwheat-cookie baking,

      buckwheat-scented candle and buckwheat-pillow making at Jeju Buckwheat Experience Center, located right next to the

      buckwheat flower field. 

      · Location (See the map): 675 Sannoknamro, Seogwipo city (June 1 (Sat) to 2 (Sun))


  ② Boromwat Buckwheat Flower Festival 2019: Do you still remember this? “Because the weather was good, because the weather

      was bad and because the weather was good enough. I loved every moment of it.” Yes, it is one of famous quotes from the drama

      “Goblin”, filmed at Boromwat Buchwheat Flower Field on Jeju. The subtle moonlight on the backdrop of white buckwheat brings a

      sense of mystery to the darkened evening, with its spilled-salt-like white flowers reflecting the moonlight. 
      · Location (See the map): 2350-104 Beonyoung-ro, Jeju city (around May 20, entrance fee: 3000 won)



 4. Picturesque Scenery of Green Barley in between Black Stone Walls


 

When it comes to Spring festivals, we can’t leave out green barley festivals either. In April, the most scenic view of green barley starts from Gapado, an island within an island. The festival lasts for over a month.


 

​  ​      Gapado Green Barley Festival 2019: The 3rd largest islet of Jeju Island followed by Chujado and Udo island, Gapado is filled with

        green waves of barley from April to early May. Gapado is also Jeju Olle’s Route 10-1 with a 5km-distance, therefore you can leisurely

        stroll the island following the Olle ribbons. 

        · Location (See the map): In a 20-minute distance from Moseulpo port by ferry (Note: Have your ID card with you for the ferry.) (March 30 to May 12)
