Nami Island have become a popular attraction for tourists and even locals in Seoul because of the popular & high rated k-drama “Winter Sonata”. It showed way back in 2002, starring Bae Yong-joon and Choi Ji-woo. This island is located at Bukhangangbyeon-ro, Gapyeong-eup, Gapyeong-gun, Gyeonggi-do, Korea.

On our fifth day in Seoul, we booked a day tour in Nami Island via klook.com. We made sure to wake up early because the call time of our tour was at 08:30 am and if we’re late, our tickets would be forfeited. From the hotel, we just walked to Insa-dong near the West Gate of Tapgol Park, to get to the waiting area of our tour.

At around 11:30 am, we arrived at Bukhangangbyeon-ro (Nami Island Dock). It took us three hours and twenty minutes to get there by bus, but we didn’t mind how long it was because we just slept the whole time. Hahaha. We decided to have our lunch first before we head for the Island because we saw that the line eager visitors at the immigration is too long.

Our lunch, Dakgalbi is one of the must-try dishes when you’re in Nami Island.

Before you get on the boat going to the island, you would need to pass by the immigration gate and present your ticket.

If I’m not mistaken, the boat ride to the Island is only 3-5 minutes. Actually, I did not notice that we already arrived because I did not feel that the boat was already moving. Hahaha

Welcome to Nami Island

We spent a few hours exploring the Island, recalling the beautiful love story scenes of Yoo-jin and Min-yeong. Of course, we took a lot of photos! Words may not be enough to describe the beauty of this Island, so hopefully the pictures I took are enough to show you how beautiful it was. We also planned to rent a bike but sadly, we weren’t able to because it started to rain.

At around 3:00 pm we left the island and went back to our bus, telling myself a personal promise to visit Nami for the second time.
