Hallim Park (한림 공원) is a famous green and forest park on Jeju Island. The park is perfect for travelers or guests looking for various plant species in one safe and entertaining place.
Hallim Park is established in early 1971, located around 33 kilometers West of Jeju City and Hallasan Mountain near Hallim's beach area.
The area where it is set up used to be an empty and barren land with nothing grows. With hard labor and determination, it turned to be like at present by pouring the whole area with tons of soil.
The big plus when you visit Hallim is that you can also enjoy the famous nearby beaches--Hyeopjae Beach and Geumneung Beach--and enjoy the view of Biyangdo Island facing it.
With around 100 thousand square meters of land area, you can explore its various plant species planted systematically, and in a manner, you will comfortably see them.
The zones or areas you can explore include...
The park not only supports the plant species but also has natural sites, including the two caves: Hyeopjaegul and Ssangyonggul Caves.
These two caves are famous for their two-dimensional features, which are believed to be the only cave in the world with such descriptions.
You can also enjoy the traditional Korean folk village, a children's amusement park, and outdoor entertainment facilities for all guests of various age levels.
If you are in a hurry, you can just explore the whole place in around two hours. But taking the time and trying to relax is highly recommended to enjoy the park.
Bringing your family, friends, colleagues, or a group of visitors will undoubtedly have a great time and keep great memories.
That's because you (and your gang) will be enjoying a half-day or full-day exploring the facilities, some of which already mentioned above. Here we go...

You can take public transportation or rent a car, motorbike or bicycle to get there.
From Jeju Intercity Bus Terminal, find or ask for a bus that travels to the West. Then get off at Hallim Park Bus Stop.
If you are from Jeju International Airport, take bus #100 get to Jeju Intercity Bus Terminal first.
It is very convenient to get there by taxi, especially when you come with a partner or friend or family member. That's because it is much quicker and inexpensive.
Getting there, riding a motorbike is not a bad idea. You can drop by and explore great sights and views along the way.
Finally, riding a bicycle around the island is accessible. I did it twice already, and it was fantastic! I would do it again.
