Nami Island, Chuncheon

4.3
Set in the middle of Bukhangang River only 63 km (39 mi) from Seoul, Nami Island provides a popular escape from city life for many locals, especially after the filming of a famous Korean drama. Stroll along the famous path lined with tall metasequoias and enjoy numerous sculptures representing love. Rent an electric bike to explore the supposed gravesite of a 15th-century general, or take a golf cart tour to enjoy the natural surroundings of countless chestnut, poplar, and mulberry trees. Cool off with a motorboat or waterski rental, or jump into the swimming pool. Use our Chuncheon day trip app to arrange your visit to Nami Island and other attractions in Chuncheon.

  • It is worthwhile to go, recommend weekdays, I do not know that also Korea 10 times, the first trip to South Island, because friends for the Korean drama Winter lovers of the scene is very longing ... From the first city Hall station to the clearing station (approx. 25 minutes-1250 Korean dollars), in the TKO of the Qing Dynasty, the Youth express train to Kapyong station (about 45 minutes-ticket for 3900 Korean yuan, from Kapyong station to South Island, there are two ways to choose the bus to go directly (cheaper time-saving), Or sit on the optical bus to South Island (bus for 6000 Korean dollars)-you can also go to other attractions to buy a ticket to take the ferry. 8,000 Korean dollar ferry ticket South Yee Island return Vehicle (3000 Korea-three people divided stalls 1000-will be faster, No need to be in the cold wind medium bus) Youth Express train return ticket 4250+ 1250 = 25650 Korean yuan, with the exchange rate of 36.6 to be calculated as the total in the Taiwanese dollar 7~800 yuan, calculate oneself to go to a lot of cheap, freedom and Time control

  • I went there during the summer (so pretty damn hot). There was to be honest not much to see apart from a street with trees and a few restaurants. Getting there from Seoul takes pretty long on the train so it took us the whole day. We went for a bike ride round the island but it still wasn't worth one whole day.
  • This island provides you with different view and feel at different seasons of the year. The placed has since 'evolved' to become more touristy since my last trip here in 2014, and has since lost nice and traditional feel I got out of it back then. If you are coming during peak period winter/autumn make extra effort to come early. The queue for the boat in and out of the island is pretty crazy. Else you can try zip lining down to the island but that cost you a cool 38000won.
  • A very beautiful place in autumn. Romantic also, known for the setting of Korean drama Winter Sonata. There are cafes, restaurants, and handicrafts shop. We opted to bring our own lunch and ate in the picnic tables scattered around the park. A good place to bring the family especially young children. There are squirrels and rabbits that seem to co-exist with people. The place can be crowded at lunchtime to afternoon, so it is better to be early.
  • This time we are going to review this magical place. We were heading this island on Autumn. 22 Sept 2017 by Train. Nami Island is located around 63km from Seoul, the island is famous for its beautiful tree lined roads. It took us around 90 minutes to reach this destination from Myeong-dong, Seoul. Ferry Schedule: 07:30-09:00 (30 min intervals) 09:00-18:00 (10-20 min intervals) 18:00-21:40 (30 min intervals) 1-day trip isn't enough to explore this island, but we have to go cause Seoul have many beautiful destination to visit.
  • We visited the island on a snowing day, it was great. Don’t hesitate to take the off road paths (rather than commercialised / famous photo taking spots), you may catch breathtaking views. We visited a coffee shop which is located right in the heart of the island, enjoyed hot coffee while watching the snow through windows was so wonderful to me!!!
