I am a student living in Seoul, and traveled to the Garden of Morning Calm by subway. I really wanted to see the light show in this garden. It was more than I imagined. Had some spectacular photos and had amazing time in there even though we travelled for more than 3 hours to see this. It was worth. After... More

We went in late November so was worried that the colourful scenery we wanted to see won't be there.. but luckily that wasn't the case. It is a huge garden with lots of different areas of interest to explore- we also saw a tv or movie crew set using one of the locations! This is a great place to visit... More

Went there after visiting Nami Island. Took the Gapyeong Tour Bus, 1 hour 30 mins ( One Day Ticket KRW 6 000 CASH ONLY, T Money Card not accepted ) . Waited for about 30 minutes in the freezing cold at the bus stop across the road from GS 25 convenience store. On hind sight, should have taken a taxi... More

This place is a must-visit if you ever go to Seoul. When I first hear it, that sounds so simple, just a place with a bunch of lamps made into cute characters and so on. But it was actually so pretty! They made the lamps into something pretty. There was a sea (I kid you not) made of lamps, then... More

The Garden of Morning Calm has a different face every season. Most pictures were taken during the colorful autumn or spring. I visited it in winter where the lighting festival was at its brightest. Although a little cold but it's really charming and dreamy.

This should definitely be one of the places you visit in winter! The lighting switches on around 5-6 pm and it becomes a real magnificent sight when the sky turns dark. You'd definitely love it. Also, it is pretty accessible with the shuttle bus service even though it is a good 1 hour drive from Petite France stop. I would... More

Visited the place during Winter season so the attraction have transform to a light festival instead. The lighting replaces the wilted flowers and decorated the hills in vibrant colours! Took so much photos here!

The Garden of Morning Calm is located about 1.5 hours outside of Seoul and is worth a visit during their winter lighting festival. It is certainly quite a spectacle over its rather grounds. There were quite a lot of tourists but other than some of the major phototaking spots, didn't feel too bad. I wish I had more time to... More

One of our favorite winter destinations. Light displays are beautiful and the area is well maintained. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the Seoul area. Not the easiest to get to if you do not have your own car. Coffee shops and gift shops are also nice. The shop at the entrance carries a lot of good natural... More

The garden lights up only in the winter and it sure brings out the calming feel of the winter. Worth coming for people who appreciates scenic views, lights, and colors.
