Enjoy a spectacular natural adventure as you travel from Busan to the island destinations of Geoje and Oedo Island. Host to some of the most pristine natural surroundings and beautiful garden views, these islands are not to be missed in South Korea. With an early start in Busan, the Geoje City & Oedo Island Tour makes its way to the first scenic destination of the day, Windy Hill Geoje. Here, you get to enjoy breathtaking vistas as you explore the delightful grass-covered hill overlooking the sea and stroll along the promenade. Consisting of a peninsula with a magnificent windmill, crystal-blue waters, and striking cliffs, this captivating scene has become a must-see attraction for anyone visiting Geoje and even featured as the backdrop for various popular Korean dramas, such as Eve’s Garden and Merry-Go-Round. After enjoying the morning in the idyllic Windy Hill, make your way to Jangseungpo, where you’ll get to relax and have lunch before boarding the ferry towards your next destination, Oedo Island. On your way to Oedo you’ll get to check out the impressive scenery of Haeguemgang Island, fondly referred to as the Sea Diamond – the rock formations rising up to 116 metres above sea-level make for a dramatic scene to be enjoyed before reaching the star of the day, Oedo Island.Once you reach Oedo, it is time to take in the wonderful surrounds of Oedo Botania Garden. With a fascinating history, marvelling at the stunning terrace garden of Oedo Botania is a breath of fresh air for anyone craving jaw-dropping views and quality time outdoors. Originally an uninhabited and barren rocky island, Oedo Botania was transformed into a botanical wonderland over the years following the 1969 arrival of a man named Chang-ho Lee and his wife. Starting out with failed attempts at cultivating orchards of tangerines and breeding pigs, the couple persisted in their endeavour to create a beautiful garden, resulting in the triumphant Oedo Botania and its immaculate terrace garden that attracts visitors from all corners of the world today. Boasting over 3,000 plant species, the magnificent manicured gardens of Oedo form part of the Hallyeo Maritime National Park and are known for the awe-inspiring views of the southern seas. Bask in the charming atmosphere at this botanical wonderland and enjoy a day well spent in nature.
