Seoul Forest: The Picture-Perfect Nature Weekend Escape

We all wanted to get away from the city hustle even for a short span of time: away from the busy and noisy streets, from the annoying traffic, the polluted air and the crowd. The Seoul Forest, which was once a royal hunting forest and a golf and race course, is the 3rd biggest forest in Korea with over 400, 000 trees and 100 different species of animals. Aside from enjoying the well-preserved beauty of Nature, the park is also a perfect place to calm and relax, while listening to the soothing rustles of the leaves against the smooth wind by the lake. One can also enjoy so many recreational activities such as skateboarding, riding bicycles, or even engaging into slow walks while enjoying the scenic view. Seoul Park is made up of 5 parks: Cultural Art Park, an Ecological Forest, a Nature Experience Study Field, Wetlands Ecological Field, and Han River Waterside Park. Aside from the enjoyable activities, the roses with over 40 beautiful types, attractive and beautiful water plants and wet-land plant species are also stealing the attention of many.

The Seoul Forest is the perfect place to spend weekend with your family and friends.

Gyernamari: Easy does it

Bored of alternating between hard boiled, sunny-side up or scrambled eggs? Spice it up by making Korea’s rolled egg omelette, or gyeran-mari. The eggs are beaten, and then rolled in layers while cooking.

 

The most common fillings are seaweed rolls or ham and frozen vegetables and it may require a bit of a practice especially if you’re not used to rolling your eggs while it’s cooking. Timing and the heat are also fundamental to getting the perfect rolled omelettes, because if you cook it in high heat, the underside may get burnt before you even get to the second layer. If it’s too low, then your eggs may end up runny and may be ruined before it ever hits the plate.

Hallim Park : The Haven of Beauteous Gardens

If you are fond of beauteous gardens, magnificent flower exhibits, caves, also doing some fun recreational activities and dance in colorful festivals, Hallim Park is one of the most rewarding place to go. Hallim Park will never become as one of the top-visited places in Jeju if it isn’t as beautiful as you think it is. The place is bursting with colors and surprising views. Hallim Park stretches for almost 100 thousand square meters and has a variety of gardens that can be adored in every season.

Once a lifeless barren land in Hyeopjaeri, Hallimeup, the park was given life after it was covered with tons of earth and  planted with assorted subtropical plants in early 1971.

Hallim Park features the following most visited and top rated attractions such as the Palm Tree Road, Jeju Stone and Bonsai Garden, Water Garden, Subtropical Botanic Garden, Jaeam Folk Village, safari bird garden, pond garden, restaurants, resting area, souvenir shop, storage room, and so many more.

In addition, some of the most famous tourist sites in Hallim Park are Hyeopjaegul and Ssangyonggul Caves, known to be the only two-dimensional caves in the world that are also designated as natural monuments. A folk village, children’s amusement park and outdoor resort facilities make it enjoyable for both children and adults.

Visitors should also watch out for Hallim Park’s various festivities and exhibits featuring Spring flower festival, or the opening flower beds of tulips, cherry blossoms, canola flowers, and more in April; Calanthe Exhibition, the displaying 100 varieties of calanthe orchids in the middle of May; Chrysanthemum Festival, where you can enjoy fall colors and the scent of chrysanthemums from late October to mid-November.
