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.

  • Nami Island is indeed a beautiful place. We have been there this October, and the fall, red color leafs on the trees has started, and it is an amazing view. Our small kids had really good time there, ...  more »
  • Nami Island is a man-made island where filming of the famous Korean drama is Winter Sonata, the island is located in the Chuncheon-Si province of Gangwon-do. To go to this island I and teman2 choose the mode of train or subway transportation, by taking the route towards Gapyeong station. After going down at Gapyeong station there are several transportation options to reach the Nami pier, which can be by taxi or by shuttle bus. Since we are planning to visit Petite France so we chose to take the Gapyeong City tour bus, this KRN bus will stop at the tourist attractions around Gapyeong, such as Petite France and the Garden of Morning Calm. If departing from Seoul should depart Pagi2 to be quite satisfied to visit all tourist attractions around Nami, the view of Nami Island is very beautiful, incidentally we visited in spring so can still enjoy the cherry view Blossoms. DIDLM Nami Island also have halal resto which is equipped with facilities Musholla, it is satisfied to visit Nami Island and surrounding

  • 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.
