South Korea has become a very popular destination in Asia over the years. And if you’d ask me one word that would always remind me of this country, it would definitely be SPRING.

One of the best memories I had with South Korea was spending a day in the Garden of Morning Calm. It is a 3-hectare garden located in Gapyeong, Gyeonggi-do, around 30km northeast of Seoul. It is a great place to visit for family, friends and photography enthusiasts. It is the oldest private garden in South Korea with 20 connected themed sections and houses 5,000 kinds of plants.
