Seoul Botanical Park is just one of the many great places to consider when the weather’s crummy or when you want to escape into the wonders of nature without leaving the city.

Touted as Seoul’s first urban style botanical garden, the park has been open for less than a year and is about a 15-minute drive from Gimpo Airport.

Here, visitors can see over 3,000 different plants and flowers including rare orchids and trees from all over the world in the sprawling garden that roughly covers the size of about 70 soccer fields. Inside, the greenhouse integrates the forest field, a pond and wetland allowing for an amazing leisurely walk.
