Bijarim Forest Reviews
비오는 날 사람이 없는 때 걸어보았다. 물안개가 자욱한 산책길이 걷기 좋았고 진흙탕길은 아니어서 걷기 편했다. 사실 굵은 나무들과 숲길 느낌이어서 아동과 함께 놀수 있는 곳은 아니지만 소소한 산책으로는 추천한다. more »I walked away on a rainy day when there was no one. The room was clean and comfortable. In fact, it's not a place to play with children because it feels like thick trees and forest trails, but it's a good place to take a small walk.
숙소가 비자림 근처여서 들러보았는데, 아주 좋은 곳입니다. 공기도 좋고, 숲내음 가득한 길을 걷다보면 절로 힐링되는 곳이죠. 그리고 매표소 앞 편의점에서 주인이 내려주는 커피가 마실만 합니다. 아이스커피 한잔으로 즐거운 산책길을 마무리할 수 있었습니다. more »It's a great place to stay. The air is good, and walking through the forest-filled streets is a healing place. The owner's coffee at the convenience store in front of the ticket office is just a drink. We were able to finish the fun walk with a cup of iced coffee.
I really liked this forest because it's a nice, relaxing walk in a beautiful surrounding among trees that are hundreds of years old. It's very cheap admission (I think around 2,000 won for adults) and takes about an hour to an hour and a half to walk through. The total course is 3.2km if you walk the whole route. It's a very easy walk, but some parts are loose rocks, so wear appropriate foot wear.
This was one of the highlights of our Jeju visit. Lots of greenery and you could feel the fresh air in your lungs. Admittedly the walk isn't that long (maybe an hour or so? We do like to walk at a steady pace) however it's a lovely atmosphere. We were behind a group of older Koreans following some sort of guide. It looked like they would be stopping at a number of trees on the route which might be interesting to some however they were nice enough to insist we bypass as they would be taking their time.
