Tips for you
“Only for the enthusiasts” Spirited Garden is developed by the same Mr Sung, who developed Hallim Park. The main focal point here is Bonsai and for those of us that partaked in YEHA tour, this is where we had our buffet lunch (which was great by the way). It's been said that we could simply browse through the extensive collection of bonsais here. I have to warn you folks that the bonsais here are truly extensive and once again, there are a lot of pictures taken of Mr Sung and foreign dignitaries that came here to pay their respect. BUT the highlight for me regarding the Spirited Garden is the explanatory notes that came in describing the process of creating great and timeless bonsais. Then, there are end notes at the bottom, which explained to us the metaphor of them related to how we shall apply them to the way we lead our lives. VERY profound, indeed. For those of us that are inquisitive, here, they all sell the book written by Mr Sung himself (in different languages) to describe about his accomplishment and in hoping to inspire us with his wisdom. Commendable visit.
