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

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
