Every year the RAS arranges a 1-day excursion to Chollipo Arboretum & Mallipo beach. A long-time Korean resident and a former President of the RASKB, Mr. Ferris Miller (1921 - 2002) began this arboretum project in 1971, and over the years amassed a vast collection of some 6,000 taxa, including over 380 kinds of magnolias. This magnolia collection is the only one of its kind in Korea, and is one of the most extensive in the world. Many of the most spectacular magnolias should be in full bloom for this excursion. Spring blooming magnolias bloom over a long period, from the end of March to the end of May, so late April is the peak period.

There are also a large variety of other flowering plants, shrubs and trees contributing to the beauty and total serenity of the locale. The arboretum, located on cliffs overlooking the sea and set in the middle of Taean Seaside National Park, provides an ideal setting for exhilarating walks in any direction.

Mallipo Beach has fine white sands and clear blue water and you can see green forests of pine trees near the beach. Every year, many people come to enjoy its beauty. With shallow water and almost no high waves, it is an ideal place for a family trip.

The cost of this excursion is W58,000 for members and W69,600 for non-members. This includes transportation and entrance fee for the arboretum. Please bring your own lunch or you may buy it at the rest stop. Our bus will leave at 8:30 a.m. from the left side of Yongsan Post Office (outside exit #1 of Sinyongsan Station, #429, on Line 4 or the Blue Line). Return is slated for the same day at 8:00 p.m.
