Seoul: Seoul Botanic Park (서울식물원)


It was winter and we found ourselves at Seoul Botanic Park, which reminded us of Singapore not only because it was warm and humid inside, but also because it resembles the Flower Dome (and now Jewel Changi Airport!)

I’m not sure Singaporeans would find this place interesting, especially when we have something similar, if not better, back at home. But to those who do not live in the tropical countries, this place might be a little more interesting. Seoul Botanic Park is free to enter before May—when it officially opens—so if you happen to be in Seoul this week and have some free time, you might want to check this place out.
