Bijarim Forest in the Island of Jeju has more than 2800 nutmeg trees, which awe the visitors with unique trees that seem to appear endlessly along the whole trail. As a largest nutmeg woods in the whole world, Bijarim Forest certainly is a favorite destination for the Korean tourists. Despite its charm, Bijarim Forest has so far been unsuccessful to gather large number of foreign tourists, all because of bad public transportation and lack of proper PR. Even I had to use a car-sharing service(SOCAR) for 5 hours to visit Bijarim Forest with my BFF Kim(a.k.a. Fan.G.-listen to his first debut song here) instead of taking a bus which runs only few times a day.
After taking a walk for 20 minutes, we encountered a signpost which told us to choose between two paths. We took the longer one, since we really favored the woods and wanted to enjoy it for a bit more.
Fan.G. and I were both fully satisfied with the beauty of Bijarim Forest itself by the time we left the woods. What made the woods so special, even for the residents of the Jeju Island? Come and feel it yourself!
