In between Dobongsan and Suraksan, these are the two mountains in the northern part of Seoul, you can find this earmarked botanical garden brimming with iris flowers. If you want a day break from the busy city you may consider visiting Seoul Iris Garden.
Irises are considered one amongst four most beautiful flowers in the world and this botanical garden contains 130 of its kind. This garden has medicinal plants, wild flowers and wetland to which attracts visitors to visit. Though on the time that I swing by, middle of September, not much iris flowers to see. Nevertheless, I still enjoy the scenery.
Location: Seoul Iris Garden, 916, Madeul-ro, Dobong-gu, Seoul
Transportation: Subway lines 1 or 7 and get off at Dobongsan station, exit 2
Time of operation: It opens from 5:00am to 10:00pm and open all year round. Spring and fall season are sure best times to take a stroll in this park.
Not much especial about this garden actually, but who will not love the serenity and naturescapes? Your visit here if you’d like, will only take an hour to explore the whole garden. Enjoy your visit as I did!
