Suncheon Bay National Garden is a gigantic conservation are housing over 505 species of trees and 113 species of flowers. The best time to visit this place is at the height of spring of course, so you can witness the tulips, azaleas, and the canola flowers in full bloom.

In wintertime of course most of the trees are naked and the ground barren. But anyway, let’s use our imagination!

What makes the Suncheon Bay National Garden interesting is the fact that it still maintains the themed gardens that were set up here by the eleven countries that participated in the 2013 Suncheon Bay Garden Expo. You can see some of the flags flying behind our guide there, belonging to countries including Thailand, Italy, the Netherlands, and also Turkey.

To be honest, there really isn’t much to see during the wintertime, but somehow Wow Korea Supporters always make it work! When we got to the Italy Garden, it was like walking through magic arches and into a production site haha!

If you’re really looking for plants and flowers in wintertime, they have an Indoor Garden you can go into. Bonus because it’s warm inside!

One of the main attractions at the Suncheon Bay National Garden are the pristine Bonghwa Hills. Apparently, the pathways of those going up and going down never intertwine.

It’s really a futuristic looking hill right?

But honestly, even with the trees in their barren state, you can still take good photos in any location in Suncheon Bay National Garden. Because Mother Nature is generous in her beauty, there are a lot of things to photograph still during wintertime.

This place is a wonderful location for a stroll, and you can even rent a hanbok and walk around here for the experience of it.

I feel like I have less words today than usual, but I think the pictures are saying a lot more than I could at the moment. It’s been a real blast with these people!

If you ever find yourself in Yeosu heading to Seoul, I think a stop by here is definitely worth it. Of course I would recommend coming in spring or even autumn, but experiencing it in the winter is not so bad. Braving the cold was definitely worth it.
