This botanical garden is well arranged, it enables you to travel around the world through its flora. Pleasant warm ambience, pretty flowers, trees and plants, outside garden too. Great for sunny days - you can admire the view of Hallasan volcano.

The cone-dome architecture is interesting, the roofs of different gardens within culminates to a peak into the center of the compound and u can take a lift up to catch a 360 panoramic glimpse of the surroundings (see pic). However, adult tix are at 9000krw per person which is not cheap for what u get within. The place has lots... More

The gardens were reasonably well tended and we liked the indoor themed zones spreading out in a cartwheel from the main atrium. Outside there are a series of larger themed gardens. Some better than others, but it is a South Korean take on these different countries garden styles. For example the fountains in the Italianate garden were quite impressive and... More

The Yeomiji Botanical Garden is easy to find and has parking places available. Entrance is not so pricy. The place is easier to enter with stroller or wheel chair. The glass house is quite big and divided into flower/aquatic/cactus/jungle and tropical fruits garden. The outdoor garden is also spacious but we did not go there. Not many people have visited...

Pathetic and unkempt..it is a disgrace to call this place a "botanical garden"! The so-called Korean, Italian and French Gradens were not even kept up! The interior greenhouses were a waste of time! It is a absolute waste of money!

I love nature so this place of course was one of my favorites. I wish I could upload videos on TripAdvisor. I can during the fall season and was blown away, imagine what this place looks like during its prime time, spring. Anyways, must visit here, must.

It wouldn't usually be my first choice to visit on an island filled with so many views but it was a rainy day so it seemed reasonable. Wasn't disappointed. The indoor exhibition is well arranged and themed: there was jungle, desert, and other sections. You can climb to the last floor of the tower in the middle for a nice... More

The building itself was amazing and the indoor gardens were impressive. You can take an elevator up to the 5the floor lookout for a nice view through windows that need cleaning. The outside gardens were mixed. Japanese garden was the nicest overall but smaller than I would have guessed. The Italian and French gardens were impressive by scale alone but... More

I am used of the garden by the bay in Singapore which is great, so I went there just to depend some time and expecting something just .. so so. I was actually wrong. The garden is nice, outside as inside. The round shape with all kid of plants, the elevator to go on the top and enjoy a great... More
