Herb lsland has a light fairy tale festival that doesn't go out for 365 days. So you can enjoy beautiful scenery everywhere, especially at night. What's more, Santa Village, Venetian Village, and Photo Zone are very well-kept, so there are many things that not only children but also adults can enjoy together.
One other thing was the fact that advantage is that there is a herb plant museum as well as many things to see, so you can see fragrant plants in front of your eyes. There are so many things to see, eat, and enjoy, so it is highly recommended especially for those who want to go on a family outing.
Also, it's well worth a visit.
If i were you, i would definitely like to visit ay least once, and of course, i am willing to revisit.

If visit at daytime, there was point 4, but night time, point 5, I think. There was vast area, and had many various theme things, botanical garden, Santa village, cafe, bakery, memorial place, shop relative herb, and so on. Though I didn't expect this attraction, but there was excellent to us with night view and atmosphere. We spent about 4 hours wandering this area and enjoying various things.

Herb Island is a Mediterranean-inspired herb theme park located in Pocheon. Unlike Everland or Lotte World, this attraction is quite unknown due to its location. But those who have gone to this place will attest to its beauty and uniqueness. If you love nature and botannicals, this place is for you. If you love to take photos, this place is also for you. For arts and crafts lovers, do not miss this place!

What to find:
- Herb Cafe
- Herb Bakery (Specialty is Herb Garlic Stick)
- Herb Restaurant (They serve good pork cutlets.)
- Herb Kalbi Restaurant (Try the beef-rib soup.)
- Herb Museum
- European landmarks: Venetian Gondola, Trevi Fountain, French village
- Present Shop
- Happiness Shop
- Aroma Shop (Buy tea, aroma oil, scented pouches, etc)
- Herb Plants Museum (the largest indoor garden in Korea!)
- Therapy Center (get aroma therapy massage here)

My visit here was unplanned but I did not regret doing so. The entrance fee is really worth it! The food was suprisingly affordable given the beauty of its premises!

I loved the Winter Wonderland they set up! The place is more gorgeous and romantic at night. :)

(1) Taking Subway Line 1 to Herb Island: note that not all Line 1 ends at Soyosan Station. At Soyosan Station, after you exit, you need cross the road to the bus stop directlt opposite the station to take bus 57 or 57-1 to Herb Island.
You can seek bus driver's help to alert you when it is the place to alight. But have the place written in Korean if you can't say it in Korean.
Note also the bus-stop you alight is also the bus-stop you take the bus to Soyosan Station.
(2) After I bought the entrance ticket, I was shocked to see a super steep slope to walk up. The worst is, the Information Centre is right in the centre of the place and all signages are in Korean Language only. But more dismay to come, I found out too late that the only language use is Korean. But it saves me lots of money because I was not tempted to buy any of the herb products since everything is in Korean and I don't understand.
(3) While it claims to open all year round, when I visited, lots of places were closed. The activities and herb experience were unavailable too.

Visited this place during weekeday with my boyfriend in the afternoon (around 4pm kst) and there weren't much people visiting on that day. We drove from 지행역 (Jihaeng Station, Subway line 1) all the way up till the herb island.

We purchased the tickets at the entrance for ₩6000 each for adult and parking is free of charge. The first impression the place is really big and beautifully decorated with flowers and colorful Led lights. Especially since it is still in the spring season, you can see the beautiful flowers.

There are a number of attractions which includes herb cafe, restaurants, bakery shop, souvenirs shop, small shops selling old school snacks and items, and many more. We toured around the place with the guide of map which you can get it at the information centre and it comes with a few languages including korean, english, mandarin, etc.

We stopped by the souvenirs shop which sells all kinds of products including herbal teas, candles, soaps, skin care products, herbal jams and many more. We were offered a cup of mint herbal tea and it tasted real good. The place itself was also covered with nice herbs smell. We decided to get a small bite at the bakery shop and their recommended menu was their signature garlic bread. We bought it at ₩5000 a pack and we really loved it. It was so tasty that it makes you want to go more for it.

We stayed till 8pm kst taking our time relaxing and taking pictures. Although there is nothing much there, it is good to visit once for first-timers. Overall experience was good and the people were friendly too. Another way to get here is to take Seoul Subway Line 1, alight at Soyosan Station, take the bus 57 and alight at Samjeong-ri station. Go straight at Samcheongol-gil street to get to the herb island.

Took a cab from the nearest train station to herb island. Roughly about 15mins cab ride. When return can also ask the information counter to help to call cab. Many many plants and flower. Good for photo taking. Personally I feel the place is quite rundown. It's free admission anyway.

Herb Island where tourists can use fresh natural herbs to make various products such as cosmetics, soaps, and candles. I've got to admit, this is one of the most beautiful places I've seen here in Korea. But don’t be misled though, because Herb Island is not an actual island, it’s more of a theme park.
I would highly recommend Herb Island as the perfect romantic dating place for couples. It's not surprising that many Korean dramas also chose this place as a filming location. The scenery was even better at night when the entire place lights up with colorful lights.
Don't forget to try the gondola ride as well.

Want to experience something Mediterranean without the need to go there directly? Then "Herb Island" in Pocheon, Gyeonggi Province is a must visit place for you whenever you visit Korea.

"Herb Island" is actually not a place surrounded by any body of water as you think it is but rather it is a place where you can enjoy, experience and have a relaxing getaway either with family or friends. In here visitors got the chance to experience first hand how to make organic herb soap, hand cream, scented candles and much more. Not only that visitors can also do couple of experience program offered generously by the management of Herb Island.

Crucial to point out when you visit to Herb Island is to wear comfortable clothes and shoes for you will definitely would want to go to all places all day long until night. Night scenery of Herb Island is just so awesome that you would want to stay longer.

Located in an agricultural area, like a land of dreams appeared in the green ocean. Herbal fragrance has accompanied you since arriving at the entrance gate. It has a fairly complete greenhouse, several thematic parks with a sea of small lights glowing like fireflies. Too bad, it's autumn so many herbs have been lost. Though coming to Herb Island wants to learn herbs.
