Enjoy the famous bracken of Jeju at the festival
Jeju bracken is highly reputed in general, but the ones found in the Namwon region in Seogwipo are considered to be the finest with their thick stems and strong fragrance. The Hallasan Wild Bracken Festival is held every spring in Sumang-ri, Namwon-eup in Seogwipo-si.
