Went in a bus tour to Herb Island from Seoul. Group left at 2:00pm, got there before 4:00. This left us time to see things in the light before it got dark and the magic of Christmas happened. There is a spa on site with massages, aroma therapy, and various other treatments. Everything smells very manufactured and not true oils... More

Excellent for couples wishing a romantic evening under the lights and families with elementary aged children and up wishing good photo ops. You have to ask about making the soap it is 2 pieces for 12,000 Won in the main large gift shop in the hotel area. My girls liked walking around seeing the lights, the greenhouse garden, as well...

After reading the reviews and saw the Christmas lightings during winter, I held in high anticipation to visit this place. However, great disappointment. This place is pretty run down and nothing much for young kids. There is a dino place with displays of a few broken and poor maintained dinosaurs. The flower garden looks run down and are covered with... More

Quite a long journey out (abt 1.5-2hrs) travelling time by car.. The venue is not as interesting as expected, although pictures have colourful background, nice flowers n herbs. Bakery, herb experience are the little shops to pop by. Do download the Korea voucher for discounted entry fee.

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.

This is my first visit here and I enjoyed it! No regrets. Came here on Sun 12 June 2016 (note many places of interest in Seoul including Herb Island are closed on Mondays). Prior the trip, we booked a bus (KRW$5,000) for a return ride from Seoul via email - brain@pncvalley.com. However if they are not responsive, you can consider... More

The journey from Seoul to Herbs Island was great and about just nice. Took about 1.5hrs by train including transfers, bus ride and walking to the entrance of the attraction. Must catch the timing of the bus as it's quite accurate. Herb island give you some kind of out of city experience, there are colorful flowers, plants and aroma everywhere.... More

This place is the BIGGEST Herb Island in Korea. There are many interesting zones inside this island, eg. Herb Museum, Santa Village, Mini Zoo, Many Concept Theme Gardens. A lot of restaurants served many kinds of healthy / organic foods. At the Healing Center, you can relax with the massage service and enjoy shopping herbs products. Don't forget to try... More

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... More

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... More
