A unique spring blossom awaits in Jeju Island


LIKE any other spring season tinged in pink and lilac colors because of cherry blossoms, Jeju Island also offers a unique blend of lush fields of yellow flowers standing from 3 to 6 feet high called “Canola”. The canola blossom is a stunning experience especially when in full bloom. This is just one of the many wonders offered by Jeju Island, a scenic, visa-free haven in South Korea that has become popular to Filipino tourists.

Famous for its Unesco World Heritage sites, world-class theme parks, mouthwater­ing cuisine and great souvenir shopping, Jeju Island has the best of all worlds. It is a perfect getaway this summer vacation. And, with an affordable tour package from Rasko Travel, get to experience:
