Whangarei businessman Hoon Kim is well known for the eco-friendly, 3D cardboard creatures lovingly named “Greatures” made from biodegradable and recyclable materials then sells through his Vine Street store, Dodoland.

Now the award-wining entrepreneur has launched a book in his native Korea for Koreans who “love to travel”. 

Enjoy New Zealand is 384 pages long, and is Hoon’s second published book.

The book combines Hoon’s passion for travel, knack for writing, and love for his hometown of Whangarei New Zealand.

“When I emigrated from Korea I started my new life in Whangarei and Whangarei became my home town,” he says. “There are so many reasons I love living here…. Waipoua Forest, the Pacific Ocean and beaches, Kai Iwi Lakes, the people, weta, fantail, and the sand dunes. My wife loves Whangarei too so I have no choice!”
