[Busan] The Dreamy Paradise – Oedo Botania Island

Hallyeohaesang National Park (or Hallyeo Maritime National Park) in Gyeongsangnam-do is Korea’s first national marine park dating back to the 1960s. A pearl among the beautiful islands is our favorite marine botanical garden Oedo-Botania Island.

Oedo Island has a beautiful view of the crystal blue South Sea and surrounding landscape. It is 4 kilometers away from Geojedo Island, and about 20 minutes by ship from Gujora Port.

Oedo was nothing but an isolated, barren island in the past. Lee Chang-ho first came to this island to escape from the wind and waves when fishing in 1969, and he and his wife gradually cultivated Camellias and all kinds of rare plants from all over the world, looking after this breathtaking landscape with all the care for 30 years.

Oedo Island is known for its magnificent terrace landscaping line both sides of the stairway. This island is a true paradise with a scenic view of the crystal blue South Sea and mind-blowing landscape. On the way to Oedo Island, you can get a glimpse of Windy Hill which was filming site for many popular Korean dramas such as Eve’s Garden and Merry- Go-Round.
