The Garden of Morning Calm is a 300,000-meter garden that attracts an array of frequent families, friends, couples and photographers who come to explore the beautifully sculpted garden flowers, trees and pathways of this stunning garden paradise.

What people are saying about Garden of Morning Calm

This tour is certainly worth the money spent and time rendered for experience. Time allocated for the 3 places of attractions are sufficient. Rail Bike is interesting with scenic views and music along the way. Nami Island was a lovely island, ideal even for kids. The place has many restaurants. We had a nice Korean meal there. Garden of Morning Calm has many beautiful flowers and trees.

I really enjoyed this tour, though it was a bit hard as someone by themselves, especially as I was the only one traveling solo. The transportation was good and comfortable (and I'm a tall guy), and there was enough time and freedom to see the sights. I would recommend the rail bike to couples and groups, not to solo travelers.

Finn is a great guide , patient, helpful and fluent in English. Had a great time at all planned destinations. Overall a 5 star experience and will book again.
