Next stop, The Garden of Morning Calm! Another popular place for not just the foreign tourists but also the local because it’s a popular filming location for KDrama’s. Surround yourself with stunning flowers and gardens AND get to see a 1,000 year old Juniper Tree. Click the link below to read more of what we saw and got up to here.
How to get here?
We got here by, “The Shuttle Bus for Gapyeong Tourist Resort”, which we caught from the Gapyeong Train Station – this is just like a Hop-On Hop Off bus. This is also how we got to the Nami Island port. From Nami Island it’s around a one hour ride to The Garden of Morning Calm.

We didn’t actually get to see the whole place because it’s huge! We arrived in the late afternoon and spent around an hour just wandering around, looking at the beautiful gardens and flowers.
Just after the Cloud Bridge you past by the beautiful Bonsai Garden!
Can’t believe this tree is over 1,000 years old! WOW!
Road to Heaven (aka the Tulip Garden)
