Nami Island, Chuncheon
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.

And, it is indeed rarely see the foliage, but once seen, it turns out that red leaf exist around the white snow. Beautiful really. GA nyesel november end here. And incidentally, the timing here fits there are foggy, so lonely once in the morning. Since I am here, I rented private Entourage van so 9 less already cross to the island of Nami.
Place is well organized and very touristy. I went to visit last April and there were crowds everywhere. Good thing that the frequent ferry helps it all in ensuring guests coming in n out in good flow. There are plenty of shops for food and souvenirs. Restrooms are easily located. Make sure you dress well for the season and occasion.
This place was a blast, even though it was -14C (6.8F aka very cold) the day I visited. The island is a little over an hour drive from Seoul and is located in the middle of a river. It is only a short ferry ride from the shore - about 2-3 minutes. The crossing is very calm. I would suggest you go early. The island was heaving with people at 10am on a weekday even with the cold weather. The island is famous for its tree lined avenues which look very different depending on the time of year, but always good for a photo opportunity. A number of snow machines were running the day I visited. Some machines were being used to create hills for sledding, others just for looks and atmosphere. There are a number of souvenir stores and cafes on the island. There are a few restaurants on shore. There looks to be a number of performance stages, but none were in use the day I went as it was so cold. I think you can rent a bicycle to get around the island.
