Jeju herb dongsan

This herb garden was half way between Seongsan and Seogwipo on the south-east coast of Jeju Island. There were not only gardens of herbs and fragrant flowers, but accommodation available for those seeking natural treatments. I sampled herbal tea that was one of the best I’d ever tasted.

But the gardens were something else. While the green house was full of herbs, outside amongst flowers and fruit trees were odd statues, miniature buildings and locations that were definitely for the Asian photo shoot enthusiast.

I passed a group taking turns to have their photographs snapped by lit trees not far from a Cinderella carriage and giant “glass” slippers that waited for an eager princess to pose for her photograph.
