“Quite a nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We went here in the autumn and it was quite a lovely sight. Downpoint is it is extremely difficult to get to this place as it is not convenient at all. It will probably take around 2 h plus from central seoul to get to this place I suppose? The tickets were rather affordable and we spent quite some time taking pretty pictures and all. Maybe you can plan a trip here and go to petite france and nami island since its all about the same area.
A place that should only be included if you have a lot of time to spend in korea!

“Beautiful on a winter night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We visited this garden in winter where at night there is an amazing light show. It is freezing cold, but there is a cafe, and a few restaurants within the garden. Highly recommended.

“Lovely in March , Few Outdoor Flowers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Although their website advertisers a wild flower exhibition running from the end of February, there were no wild flowers. I was not surprised, since the blooms in Korea often don't start before April, and this year was an exceptionally cold winter. That being said, the grounds are lovely to walk around on a sunny early spring day. The indoor hot house was a riot of colorful blooms and a fab spot for taking photos. Lots of opportunities for shopping, including beautiful plants. Lunch in the restaurant was delicious and healthy. Try the bibimbap!

Accurate advertising would be most appreciated!!

“Enjoy the Maple Beauty !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

It is a huge, one of the best botanical gardens in Seoul. Four seasons with 4 different features, open year-round and good for all ages. Scenic walkways, beautifully manicured grass land, and flower beds connect the 20 themes of the garden. It is a paradise for photographers, tourists, families and couples.
We went there in early November, we were so impressed by the stunning natural beauty from the maple.
