Korea Spring RoadTrip (April 2017) – Yeosu –> Suncheon: Suncheon Bay National Garden (순천만국가정원)

Introduction

Suncheon Bay National Garden is Korea’s first national garden, that was built to turn the 1.12 square kilometers of natural habitat into a conservation area.

There are two entrances at the East and West side of the Suncheon Bay National Garden. East gate leads to the Suncheon Lake Garden, Korean Medicine Experience Center and Metasequoia Path while West gate leads to the Korean Tradition Garden and Suncheon Bay International Wetland Center. The two sections are linked by a dream bridge.

The National Garden houses over 505 species of trees and 113 species of flowers, which is truly a sight to see during Spring season. It is recommended to spend at least one full day here as the place is fairly huge and spacious. To navigate around, remember to grab the free map at the entrance. We even got a free mask sample upon registration.

See & Do

As time is pressing for us, we made the decision to only explore the sections below. Sightseeing bus is available but seperate fees is applicable with one circulation tour takes approximately 30 minutes.

1, Suncheon Bay International Wetland Center

Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and research archives, this center is pretty huge by itself and has a lot to offer. The center hosts indoor and outdoor exhibitions that educate visitors about the history of Suncheon Bay and the importance of the ecological system.

This bridge was assembled with 30 containers and it links the west and east part of the garden. Itself, it is an art gallery that displays children’s paintings about dreams and hopes from around the globe.
