The Title 
Garden of the Earth - 
symbolizes the value and characteristic of Suncheon Bay, preserved as one of the best natural gardens of the world.
The Suncheon Bay Garden Expo 2013, authorized by the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH), is slated to be held around Suncheonman Bay from April 20th through October 20th.

Organized under the theme ‘Garden of the Earth,’ the Suncheon Bay Garden Expo 2013 is a global festival to be held for six months from April 20 to October 20, 2013 in Suncheon City of the Namdo region. Suncheonman (Suncheon Bay) is a coastal wetland registered on the Ramsar Convention. Korean photographers often select Suncheonman Bay as one of the best spots to watch sunsets in Korea.

The expo will be divided into three sections: the main expo site (564,000m²), featuring 10 country gardens and 60 themed gardens; the International Wetland Center (100,500m²), featuring an animal/plant exhibition hall, a theater, an ecology learning hall, and a wetland experience hall; and an arboretum (253,000m²). Connecting the main expo site and the wetland center will be a bridge, constructed using freight containers decorated with 160,000 artworks created by children from all over the world.

There will be four different types of admission tickets including a day pass, night pass, 2-day pass, and group pass. Tickets are currently sold at discounted prices on the online ticketing site, Interpark. (

Meanwhile, Suncheon-si was delegated as the official host city for the 2013 International Garden Exposition by the AIPH in 2009. The Suncheon Bay Garden Expo 2013 will be the first time Korea is holding the respectable event, which has been held around the world for 150 years.
