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

Suncheon Bay National Garden is the No.1 National Garden that was built to turn the natural habitat into a conversative area.


This place is fairly huge and is divided into east and west sections, which are linked via the dream bridge. It is recommended for you to:

1, Spend at least one full day here

2, Grab the free map at the entrance for navigating around

*If you were fortunate, you might even get a free mask sample upon registration.

3, Decide which sections you would like to explore

  • Suncheon Bay International Wetland Center
  • Korean Traditional Graden
  • Dream Bridge
  • Suncheon Lake Garden
  • Korean Medicine Experience Center
  • Metasequoia Path

4, Consider the below transportation modes as it is quite huge to cover on foot:


Transportation Modes Price Boarding Place
Tour Bus 3, 000 won In front of French Garden
Sky Cube 8, 000 won Suncheon Bay Garden Station <-> Literature Hall Station
Ecological Tour Ship 7, 000 won

In front of Mujin Bridge <-> Suncheon Bay Wetland

As time is pressing for us, we chose to only explore certain sections of the garden but on foot:

1, Suncheon Bay International Wetland Center

This is a general exhibition center which publicize Suncheon Bay’s ecological importance. It is pretty huge by itself and has a lot to explore:

2, Dream Bridge


This bridge was assembled with 30 containers and it links the west and east part of the garden.


Itself, it is an art gallery and art work that display paintings about dreams and hopes from children around the globe.

3, Suncheon Lake Garden


Suncheon Lake Garden is the iconic view of Suncheon National Bay Garden, designed by world-class designer Charles Jenks. It is the mini versions of mountains and streams in Suncheon.

Visiting the National Bay Garden during spring season is truly a blessing:
