(1) Taking Subway Line 1 to Herb Island: note that not all Line 1 ends at Soyosan Station. At Soyosan Station, after you exit, you need cross the road to the bus stop directlt opposite the station to take bus 57 or 57-1 to Herb Island. You can seek bus driver's help to alert you when it is the place... More

Nice and relaxing place to visit. Take bus number 57-1 from opposite direction of Soyosan Station approximately 30mins ride from Soyosan to the village. You'll need to walk approximately 7-10mins from the bus stop to the village. Or you can take Taxi from station to village for approximately KRW @15000 Enjoy the LED light scenery at night.

Went in a bus tour to Herb Island from Seoul. Group left at 2:00pm, got there before 4:00. This left us time to see things in the light before it got dark and the magic of Christmas happened. There is a spa on site with massages, aroma therapy, and various other treatments. Everything smells very manufactured and not true oils... More

Excellent for couples wishing a romantic evening under the lights and families with elementary aged children and up wishing good photo ops. You have to ask about making the soap it is 2 pieces for 12,000 Won in the main large gift shop in the hotel area. My girls liked walking around seeing the lights, the greenhouse garden, as well...

After reading the reviews and saw the Christmas lightings during winter, I held in high anticipation to visit this place. However, great disappointment. This place is pretty run down and nothing much for young kids. There is a dino place with displays of a few broken and poor maintained dinosaurs. The flower garden looks run down and are covered with... More

Quite a long journey out (abt 1.5-2hrs) travelling time by car.. The venue is not as interesting as expected, although pictures have colourful background, nice flowers n herbs. Bakery, herb experience are the little shops to pop by. Do download the Korea voucher for discounted entry fee.

Took a cab from the nearest train station to herb island. Roughly about 15mins cab ride. When return can also ask the information counter to help to call cab. Many many plants and flower. Good for photo taking. Personally I feel the place is quite rundown. It's free admission anyway.

This is my first visit here and I enjoyed it! No regrets. Came here on Sun 12 June 2016 (note many places of interest in Seoul including Herb Island are closed on Mondays). Prior the trip, we booked a bus (KRW$5,000) for a return ride from Seoul via email - brain@pncvalley.com. However if they are not responsive, you can consider... More

The journey from Seoul to Herbs Island was great and about just nice. Took about 1.5hrs by train including transfers, bus ride and walking to the entrance of the attraction. Must catch the timing of the bus as it's quite accurate. Herb island give you some kind of out of city experience, there are colorful flowers, plants and aroma everywhere.... More

This place is the BIGGEST Herb Island in Korea. There are many interesting zones inside this island, eg. Herb Museum, Santa Village, Mini Zoo, Many Concept Theme Gardens. A lot of restaurants served many kinds of healthy / organic foods. At the Healing Center, you can relax with the massage service and enjoy shopping herbs products. Don't forget to try... More
