「博覽會」大受歡迎,每天都有大批遊客排隊進場。

順天灣位於韓國西南端的全羅南道,該道由二十二個城市(市、郡)組成,這裡有溫和氣候和廣闊無垠的平野,沿着美麗的海岸線約有二千多個島嶼,在這個天賜的自然環境中,這片人和自然和諧生存的深情的土地,也被稱為「韓國人的心靈故鄉」。


場內各種花卉盛放,賞心悅目。

保育濕地 發展旅遊
順天灣是五大海岸濕地之一,擁有面積約二十二點六平方公里的泥灘濕地,以及約五點四平方公里的蘆葦區,這裡孕育着無數的植物和生物,更是著名的候鳥棲息地。多年以來,當地政府致力保護該濕地,並成為一環保地帶。今年四月二十日至十月二十日,韓國政府在此舉行「2013順天灣國際庭園博覽會」,藉此把順天市打造成世界級的環保城市,在順天灣發展環保旅遊,帶動城市的持續發展。

為期半年的「2013順天灣國際庭園博覽會」共有二十三個國家參加,花園共八十三個,其中「世界花園」有十三個,包括韓國園、法國園、中國園、荷蘭園、美國園、德國園、意大利園、西班牙園、英國園、日本園和泰國園等;「設計園林」有六十一個,其中戶外有三十五個、室內二十六個;另還有主題花園十一個。八十三個花園都各具特色,令人目不暇給。

夢想之橋 不容錯過
整個博覽會最令人讚賞和留下深刻印象之處首推「夢想橋」,該橋橫跨東川河,把「濕地區」和「世界花園區」連貫起來,整條橋以廢棄的貨櫃箱搭建,橋內兩邊牆壁掛滿逾十四萬幅來自世界各地兒童的畫作,凸顯他們對未來的期望和夢想。若有意從作品中瞭解他們的思維,相信可留連整日,即使匆匆而過,遊客也會感受到「友誼之可貴!」。


整個「博覽會」的面積非常廣闊
