Trip Jeju-Seoul Day 3 (Part 1): Hallim Park - Jeju World Heritage Center - Sangumburi Crater

By looking at the title, our 3rd day was not as tight as the second day. Well considering what has happened a day before, we tried not to be too ambitious and were just filling up the day ikut tahap kesihatan org yg sakit kaki tu hihi. After all he was the only person we can count for to drive us to our destination, jadi kena jaga dia betul2 kan :) Hubby's leg was still not ok obviously, of course you cannot expect magic to happen and his foot to cure within just a day! Bertabahla sayang!!

Hallim Park became our first destination of that day. Looking at his condition, I suggested hubby to just stay inside the car or mingle around the park entrance. Too much movement definitely was not good and makes the healing process slower, but upon arrival at the Hallim Park, hubby decided to join us to tour the park. I iz of course la happy, sebab kesian kalo hubby kena tunggu lama2 dlm keta. Plus hallim park tu sangatttt besar, sure hubby bosan banget kalo just stay dlm keta kan!

And so we walked at a slower pace together and tried our best to enjoy every inch of the park...together with Semah's family. Aini memang dah sampai lama kot..well semua tempat mmg Aini sokmo sampai dulu hehe. Here's an extract from the Visit Korea website for ur reference:

Hallim Park, located western 33km away from Jeju City and west of Mt. Hallasan along the beach in Hallimeup, is one of the most popular tourist spots on Jeju Island. It faces the pleasant scenery of Biyangdo Island, Hyeopjae Beach and Geumneung Beach. The park was established on barren land in Hyeopjaeri, Hallimeup, and covered with tons of earth and began planting assorted subtropical plants in early 1971.

Hallim Park, almost 100 thousand square meters, has a variety of gardens that can be enjoyed in any season. Visitors can enjoy checking out Palm Tree Road, Jeju Stone and Bonsai Garden, Water Garden, Subtropical Botanic Garden and much more. The most famous tourist sites in Hallim Park are Hyeopjaegul and Ssangyonggul Caves known to be the only two-dimensional caves in the world. In addition, a folk village, children's amusement park and outdoor resort facilities make it enjoyable for both children and adults.
Our review - highly recommended especially if you plan for a short stay in Jeju.  It's because Hallim Park has almost everything that Jeju can offer, and it was actually a summary of few other attraction places in Jeju. Very well planned indeed! You can see the famous grandfather jeju stones, flower garden, bonsai and cactus garden, fish pond, folk village, caves (ohh u can just skip Manjanggul Cave if u plan to come here), children's park and many more. We spent half of the day here but still couldn't cover the whole park. Sangatttt besar dan memenatkan! The caves in my opinion is better than Manjaggul Cave because it has some lighting which makes walking much easier, plus the pavement is not that difficult. The cactus garden is amazing, you can see lots n variety of cactus species, some of them are very tall ( i mean taller than us the human!).

muka2 terpaksa kena posing

kaki hencot2 pon tetap nk posing :p

anak2 kami yg almost sebaya semuanya...moga ukhwah berkekalan yer bila besar nanti anak2!! Ika cepat suruh mama tambah adik paan bole geng ngn adik ammar :p

lunch isi perut dulu. heaven giler dpt pekena nasi goreng dan smoothie grape. lepas mkn ni bermula lah episod kami sesat barat di bandaraya Jeju haha...mmg stress woiii...tukang driver lagiklah stress banget!

There's a vending machine outside its souvenir shop (near the park entrance) where we got the best yet very cheap grape smoothie, so refreshing when u got to guzzle cold water under the hot sun! So my take, if you come to Jeju, pls come and visit Hallim Park. The entrance fee is quite expensive but it's all worth it :) Pre-caution, sangat memenatkan yer!

TIPS: Make sure u bring enough plain water, snacks, sunglass and umbrella (optional hehe).

Cost update:
Hallim Park entrance adult 10k, child 6k, total 32k
fridge magnet 2k
grape smoothie 2k
