[Re]: Hallyeo Marine National Park

Hi there,

There are so many good places you should visit but i'd like to

recommend one place.

*Oedo Island
Oedo-Botania is a marine botanical garden located in Hallyeo Maritime National Park, which has a beautiful view of the crystal blue South Sea and surrounding landscape.  It is 4 kilometers away from Geojedo Island.  About 20 minutes by ship from Gujora Port, past Naedo Island lies the European-like Oedo Island.  In 1969, Lee Chang-ho first came to this island to escape from the wind and waves as he was fishing.  Him and his wife created this breathtaking landscape with all the care for 30 years.
In April, the island is covered with plethora of flowers. The Venus Garden displays twelve sculptures and a western-style garden.  At Paradise Lounge, one can enjoy the sunshine and the sea while drinking beverages.  Camellias and various kinds of rare flowers from all over the world can be found in Oedo.  When coming down the 'Stairway to Heaven,' visitors canv view the beautiful garden and the ocean in the background.  Magnificent terrace landscaping line both sides of the stairway.  Oedo Paradise Island is without a doubt, a true paradise.  

*Way to get there.
