“Well maintained...” I would not call it a must see attraction, but go there if you have spare time. I really liked their collection of cacti and insectivorous plants. The glasshouse arrangement is really impressive. The tropical section had fruit-bearing mango trees which was a sight to behold (inside the glasshouse). The French garden, the Italian garden, etc are good for a stroll. Didn't find anything there specifically impressive.
Should visit this place. surprisingly well-organized, pleasantly arranged, & peaceful. Better than any other botanic gardens in Korea. <3
