I’ve visited many botanical gardens. Many which are beautiful and amazing. However they have had a lot of human influence. This garden is in a forest with some human influence. I feel it was set up to be a place of research of plants. Entrance fee is 1,000 won but you have to make a reservation on the website which is in Korean. Public transportation is very easy from Uijeongbu bus terminal, you can take the number 21 bus which is about 30 stops but the bus doesn’t skips most of the stops so it’s faster.

Located in an agricultural area, like a land of dreams appeared in the green ocean. Herbal fragrance has accompanied you since arriving at the entrance gate. It has a fairly complete greenhouse, several thematic parks with a sea of small lights glowing like fireflies. Too bad, it's autumn so many herbs have been lost. Though coming to Herb Island wants to learn herbs.

A stone mountain, once an abandoned ans forgotten stone pit, has been recreated as a lake with rainfalls and streams flowing into it. You can enjoy culture and art performances at the outdoor concert hall and dream of becoming an astronaut in the astronomical science hall with a beautiful view of starlit skies.
The quarry turned tourist attraction is an amazing place for photography. It is Northeast of Seoul so we decided to book a day tour to cover this and Herb Island. Arriving at almost sunset was a superb idea because we were able to capture good shots of the quarry and when the sun set, special lighting shone on the area and the quarry looked mystical as the lighting changed.
