YEONGDONG, Jan. 4 (Korea Bizwire) — The World Fruit Garden located in the fruit theme park in Yeongdong, North Chungcheong Province, is gaining popularity as a winter getaway.

The garden features four-story vinyl greenhouses and temperatures rise as high as 25 degrees Celsius during the day.
Each plant has an information board that introduces its origin and features. There is also a place for visitors to rest.
