Jeju land was amazingly beautiful! Just outside the city limits, the road went into a strip of forestthat seemed like green, endless, subtropical jungle. Looking at the forest, it seemed to Jin Ho that in front of her eyes came to life the old granny's stories of good bandits who attacked dishonest rich people in the dense forests, then distributed the goods to poor peasants. The car windows were open, and despite the heat, the air in the woods was cool and fresh, with the wonderful smell of nature. To the left and right, the cliffs rose up to the level of the horizon, and in the distance ahead and the huge extinct volcano of Hallasan could be seen.
The island was of volcanic origin, rocky, partly rugged in appearance because of the craters of extinct volcanoes that rose here and there in the distance. There were very nice lawns where medicinal herbs and shrubs grew exuding amazing aroma and beauty. Almost any type of flora and fauna could be found here. There were pine groves, thickets of wild tropical lianas and ivy, palm plantations, mandarin orchards, rare animals and plants, birds and, of course, incomparable beauty of sandy beaches not even mentioning the rich underwater world. However, the swimming season on the island is short, and when the weather changed in the rainy season, hellish winds that could froze anyone to the bone rose.
