Just as other plants are looking to keep things simple for winter, the camellia is looking to show off all its colors!
Throughout winter the flowers can be found across the island, but the Ramsar site of Dongbaekdongsan in the Seonheul Gotjawal is one of the best locations for them.
You can also have the pleasure of walking through one of Jeju’s gotjawal volcanic woodlands, where the stable temperature is always a tough warmer than outside.
