    The garden was stunning. Went there during summer/monsoon period of 2017. It was an amazing spot despite the meveremding showers throughout the day.

    Stunning place. We booked a tour, so I can't advice on how to get there on your own. But what a gorgeous place, we booked a tour through koreaeasytour garden of morning calm+nami island + ganwondo railway bike. If you're thinking whether to go, I definitely would recommend this.

    Visited in winter. The winter lighting festival is so beautiful, where all the trees and bushes are covered with lighting. Lighting festival usually starts from 5pm. It was most worth the trip although the garden is quite far from Seoul. Two hours is not enough to stroll the whole garden. This garden is also the shooting location of k-dramas.
