Tulips are great. But cherry blossom are ending. The tropical garden is very impressive. If only the other parts of the garden were better maintained. I would have rated this place 5 stars. The caves was very interesting. From hot garden to cold caves. The follow by waterfall. It’s very nice transition. One must spend about 3-4 hours to fully explore this garden and use the guide to walk through the garden.

I really enjoyed walking this garden with many different theme.

Keep up the good work and hopefully with your increased price you can do better maintenance.

Hallim Park is a jack of all trades but a master of none. It is rather unusual to find a mini bird park, caves and gardens altogether in the same place (but not all of them were stunning). Some of the vegetation were not well maintained.

That said, if you enjoy viewing cherry blossoms and tulips, this is your chance. When we went last week, the cherry blossoms and tulips were in full bloom and they were absolutely a wonderful sight. We were hoping to see cherry blossoms in Jeju and didn't know we will catch them right here at Hallim Park. You can miss everything else, but don't miss these seasonal flowers.

I can't make of this place. It has plants, caves, a folk village and greenhouses. Yet none of the attractions was really top rate. I would give it a miss and visit attractions with more focus on any one of the above.

Must come when spring season on early April. There will be more flowers especially cherry blossom and tulips.

My only concern with Hallim Park is the condition of some of the animals they have there. The 'cages' or 'presentation units' seem quite small for some of them, and some of the bigger birds didn't seem particularly happy. I don't want to give this an 'average' review because the caves are incredibly unique, the diverse array of trees and plants is also very special. But full disclosure, this place may not be for everyone.
