Nami Island, South Korea (11 November 2018)
Because its ‘must visit place’ label, I went to Naminara. Nothing special than an overrated place with people queuing to take some pictures in every corner of the Island, but, well, since it was my first time in South Korea, I enjoyed it as much as they did, as a tourist.
To reach to Naminara (I rather love to call it “Naminara” than “Nami Island”, for no particular reason :b), from the nearest station of where I stayed at that time, I took subway Line 6 at Itaewon station and transferred several times to finally arrive at Gapyeong station. Because it is located outside Seoul, it took about almost 2 hours to get there, but it was worth. As long as my journey at that time, because I was standing in front of the door, my eyes were wandering toward the scenery over the window, captivated.
From Gapyeong, I immediately reached the bus stop in front of the station, queuing to purchase the bus ticket. It can be purchased directly from the driver at the doorstep by paying ₩ 6,000 fare that worth a return ticket to visit Nami Island, Petite France, and Garden Morning Calm. Please, keep in mind, to not losing it, because it should be shown to the driver every time we would like to take the bus to continue to another destination and/or back to Gapyeong station.
Before we can enter the island, we should pay ₩ 13,000 ‘visa’, and then after that, the ferry took me to cross the river. A half day at Naminara is enough. I wrapped my visit there with jajangmyeon, a noodle with black soy sauce, for my lunch.
As usual, to wrap this post, I provide my snaps from Naminara as below.
