Visited the island as part of a tour package. While the scenery and nature was breathtaking, I personally found it hard to get over how overly manicured and managed the nature on the island felt. Maybe it's just me, but I didn't enjoy it as...More

My family and I spent a “controlled” 1.5 hour on a clear sunny afternoon at the Oedo Botanical, which was just sufficient. Oedo Botania is the result of at least 30 years of transformation work of Chang-ho Lee and his wife after they obtained approval...More

I went to this nice «secret» location on a small island on the south east of Geoje-Si. It is impressing how they have turned this little island into a park totally different what you see elsewhere in Korea. My friend and I we went there...More

Having read about this island several years ago, I was keen to finally get to visit the real thing. I wasn't disappointed. Oedo is a wonderfully scenic island. The gardens are spectacular and there are an amazing amount of opportunities to take photos. The island...More

Oedo Botania is really a beautiful island. We took a ferry to go around Haegeumgang island and then landed at Oedo Botania island. We had 1 hour to visit the island

You can go to oedo from Gujora ferry terminal. I recommend to buy tickets for your trip in advance on the internet. Roundtrip(ferry) 11000won, Entrance fee(botania garden) 11000won. So, 22000won per a person in this journey

Hello, i am planning a day trip to Geoje. (just realized i should have posted in Geoje forum instead of busan..) Need some help on the transport to Geoje. Naver map says that i can take bus 2000 from hadan station which will take 1hr 13 mins. but most of the online information says to take bus from Busan seobu bus terminal, which will take 1 hr 20 mins and is more expensive?

If you take a bus at seobu terminal, you might be get off at gohyeon bus terminal in geoje. You can easily transfer local transportation there. That is why online reply says so. And you can get to Oedo botania from gujora ferry terminal.
