Garden of the Morning Calm

Garden of the Morning Calm is the oldest private garden in Korea. It is composed of around 20 gardens. It also has a flower shop, herbal shop, gift shop, korean restaurant, coffee shop, and tea house.

Why do you need to visit The Garden of Morning Calm?

I have two reasons to visit this place: to see the colorful leaves of Autumn, and to see the filming location of Moonlight Drawn By Clouds (구르미 그린 달빛).


When is the best time to visit?

I’ve been wanting to visit this place every time I visit Gapyeong. It was winter when I first went to Gapyeong. During winter, most of the trees are withered. All they have is a lighting festival. They just put some lights on the withered plants to make it look attractive. I’ve decided to spend more time in Petite France than to go there. Then came Spring, I wanted to visit the garden but it rained. I always have a reason not to go there.
I told myself that I shall go there on Autumn. For me, Autumn is the best time to visit the Garden of the Morning Calm. It the time when the green leaves turn into yellow, orange, and even red.

How to go there?

The fastest way to go there is to take the subway going to Cheongpyeong Station. Then take the Gapyeong Tour Bus or bus 31-7 going to Morning Calm Arboretum. If you miss the bus, you can take a taxi to go there.
