No Shopping DMZ Half Day Tour from Seoul

123 reviews
Enjoy the highlights of the DMZ and get back to Seoul in time for lunch on a guided group tour. Listen to immersive commentary during visits to Imjingak Park, Dora Observatory, and other important landmarks. Have your camera ready for an unobstructed view of one of the world's most famous demilitarized zones. Best of all, this excursion does not include unnecessary shopping stops that other tours add on, which saves you valuable vacation time.

This belongs to National Institute of Forest Science and there's almost no sign for Hongneung Arboretum. In this lab, there are many rare plants and flowers. Good to visit if you are near. - It is said they only allow guide tours on weekdays. But, it's free to walk around on weekend. - 20~30 min walk from Cheongnyangni Station. - Normally not crowded. - Fine place to enjoy flowers like cherry blossoms. We especially loved maehwa(Japanese apricot) flowers. - There are many different plants that are rarely seen in the city. - Hillside area maybe a bit tough for seniors.

As a 73 year old horticulturalist from Australia, I loved this place. My daughter, who lives in Seoul, found it on the last day of my visit. Appreciated Latin names I could understand, and loved the bird boxes all through the forest with the sight & sounds of birds. A wonderful collection of trees. Beautiful walks breathing cleaned air, also enjoyed by my 6 year old grandson.

Only got to see it from the outside as I missed this key information on my Thursday visit. Easy to find. Looked beautiful.

The Hongneung Arboretum is a very peaceful place within a very busy city. Even though I am not a Tree person, I enjoyed the visit tremendously. All the tree and plants are labeled in Korean and with their Latin name, no English. My only regret is that I didn't bring a book to read, easel to paint, or my camera to take pictures.

What I mean is you can really see a wide variety of trees and plants that grow in a temperate climate. Good walks that don't really tire you out in addition to places where you can sit down and have a picnic lunch. Good for a family outing.
