Have you ever wished to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life but didn’t have the time or money for a long vacation? Well pack a day bag, because I have the perfect place for busy individuals. In Jeonseon, Gangwon-do, you will find the magical Romy Zian Garden! Ideal for families, the Romy Zian Garden has everything you could need, including rustic cafes, art galleries and — best of all — breathtaking natural scenery.
History of Romy Zian Garden
The origin story of this beautiful garden is wonderfully touching. In 2011, married couple Romy and Zian visited Gangwon-do on vacation. They were both fascinated by the beauty of the Jeongseon area but something magnificent happened. Romy had suffered with ill health for a long time, but after coming to Gangwon-do, she healed. Together, they created the Romyzian Garden so that others could partake in the healing experience as they had done.
I was completely taken aback when I first arrived at Romy Zian Garden. Honestly, I couldn’t believe that such a magical place existed in Korea, let alone a few hours from Seoul. I was enamored with the landscape, and everything from the cobble stones to the sculptures were enchanting.
The air quality was incredible and I relished every moment of the walk. I also appreciated the option for an overnight stay, as well as a day trip. Furthermore, the booking process is so easy!
The Romy Zian Garden is well-equipped with creature comforts. After walking around, enjoy the natural view with a coffee at one of the cafes. You can also peruse the gift shop for that perfect souvenir. Additionally, don’t forget to check out the art hall.
