woke up at 6 in the morning, got out on 730 and reached Dong Seoul Bus Terminal (Gangbyeon Subway Station) at 8 something. but took off later at 9am and reached there at 10 something~. there’s another way to get there by subway directly to Gapyeong and take either a bus or a taxi from there. taking the bus is errrrrr. a little bit more expensive but more comfortable seats =D. at Gangbyeon Station, you still have to take a cab or another bus to Nami Island. it’s okay to walk as well actually. =D. it’s just that as first timers you might not know the way so…. taking the taxi would cost about 3,000-4,000won. depending on the traffic actually.
on the Namimaid ferry. basically the only way you can get to Nami Island other than literally “flying” there via flying fox. which costs a bomb.
if you look Korean, or speak Korean make sure you bring your passport (or Alien Registration card) because foreigners get a 2,000won off! original price at 10,000won.
the Namimaid with the beautiful Autumn trees behind. and the other half bald. D=.
I came here a week late actually. like 50% of the trees are bald when I got there. but they differ according to the type of tree. so some trees might still be greenish if I was here last week. it’s hard to find a place with a row of trees which are all yellow/red.
red and yellow leaves. ahhh.
so here’s a treat for you girls. my ridiculously photogenic friend who’s only 19. I am jealous of all younger people.
well I had a bet with Yie Chern (that photogenic friend of mine) that there will still be a lot on the trees and if they are all on the floor I will just take pictures with the floor.
ridiculously photogenic friend is ridiculously tall.
the most famous two row of trees!
rather than taking pictures right in the middle, taking from the side looks good too!
there was a girl who went in front of the little boy, pointed at his “thing” and screamed “OMMA!! GOCHUUUUUUU!!!” it literally means “mom!! chilli!!” you get the picture right? heheheheheh.
each time I come here I forget to bring food and picnic-ky stuff here. sigh. look super fun no?
probably the most good looking Malaysian student here. either that or I have awesome skills in making people look good in pictures.
one of the best not-so-natural views in Nami Island. here, or
here. love that soju bottle bridge! =3.
awesome Autumn tree is awesome.
oh right, you can find hearts everywhere. literally EVERYWHERE. it’s the island for lovers. no kidding. so never ever come here alone.
this place was FABULOUSLY perfect a week ago. just imagine the leaves on the floor on the trees. =P.
envy anybody who can jump. because, I can’t. took a personal “lesson” from SmashpOp but he said it couldn’t be helped. =S.
yeah so no choice but to take pictures with the leaves on the floor U_U.
oh right, there are a lot of bikes for rent. those for you to stand on, and even bikes with a track on the sky. when you go there you’d know.
JOON SANG IS MINEEEEEEEEEEEE =3. not like I like him actually =S.
I am 169cm and was wearing heels but I still feel short. U_U.
a friend once told me to not smile with teeth because I have ugly teeth U_U.
awesumhhh background U_U.
this place was so pretty I didn’t want to leave. it was near the hotel area.
the best souvenirs. freeeeeee souvenirs, leaves. ehehe. just bring a book and randomly slip them in the middle! =D.
soooooooooo much. I collected like 30 of them when I was here on a holiday last time haha.
camwhore with the leaves on floor phail.
BEAUUUUUUUUUUUTIFULLLLLLLLL PLACEEEEEEEEEE! absolutely like a dream. hurrrr. it’s nothing similar in Seoul. must go to the Shigols (country). it’s no doubt that Autumn is the most beautiful season to visit Korea.
there was some festival there. with concerts.
and traditional games for public to play (for freeeeee!)
and a place for you to cook your potatoes =3.
eating the famous Chuncheon Dalggalbi in Chuncheon itself! =D.
love ’em kimchi pots!
the title of this art is 의 모든 것 which translates to everything I have. don’t know why but I laughed seeing this =X.
ate the yummy dosirak (traditional lunch box) again! for directions, look for my Summer Nami Island post.
no doubt, the land of scribbling. haha.
there’s two tall towers there. one for bungee jumping, another for flying fox.
Those red & yellow leaves definitely make up the romantic ambiance!
So pretty!!! Even during winter time, Nami Island is pretty!!! Seen it at Winter Sonata drama 🙂
