it is interesting to know that it is a man-made island. Mrs & Mr. Lee Chang Ho created this beautiful piece of paradise in 1969. It took them 30 years to create this magical land. Every year hundreds of visitors flock the place and admire the sheer dedication of the couple.

Although one can visit the island throughout the year yet spring is considered the best season for a visit. You can find many rare flowers in full bloom. Check out the ‘Venus Garden’ & ‘Staircase to heaven’. There are several observation decks that give you a panoramic view of nearby islands and sea.
