You don’t have to travel far from Camp Humphreys for some amazing flora. The Pyeongtaek Natural Theme Botanical Garden is a mid-sized greenhouse which is host to over 171 different plant species. Better yet, you can visit this garden year-round for free! The area with cactus and succulents was a highlight which also makes for a great photo-op. It took me about 20 minutes to walk through the entire greenhouse, and outside the surrounding park is the setting of the garden’s annual flower festival.
