The inside is beautiful but had a huge amount of school groups which made it hard to walk around. The outside gardens are lovely and romantic and makes for a nice stroll with your significant other.

It was enjoyable to walk through this botanical garden, but I have seen better. It was great fun to go up to the top of the tower for a 360 degree view of the area.

We visited Jeju in the off season so the outside wasn't what it normally is, but the inside was absolutely beautiful.

This is a beautiful place to learn about the gardens and native korean plants. There are many different types of gardens here and they are all well maintained and interesting.

This botanical garden is well arranged, it enables you to travel around the world through its flora. Pleasant warm ambience, pretty flowers, trees and plants, outside garden too. Great for sunny days - you can admire the view of Hallasan volcano.

The cone-dome architecture is interesting, the roofs of different gardens within culminates to a peak into the center of the compound and u can take a lift up to catch a 360 panoramic glimpse of the surroundings (see pic). However, adult tix are at 9000krw per person which is not cheap for what u get within. The place has lots... More

The gardens were reasonably well tended and we liked the indoor themed zones spreading out in a cartwheel from the main atrium. Outside there are a series of larger themed gardens.
