I was here a few years back for the autumn season which the fallen leaves were really beautiful and nice! So this time round I decided to drop by Nami Island during Spring and I really loved Nami even during Spring!

Once you have landed at Nami Island from the ferry, you can really feel the spring showers and wind blowing across your face. You can just practically spend the bulk of your time enjoying a slow walk along the tall trees, or to look out for famous sights where Winter Sonata was filmed. But one of the things I like to do over at Nami is to actually head over to the central area where there is a Well like structure. They do sell Red Bean buns which was really tasty, so I recommend heading over to the center area and see if the buns captures your stomach!

You can also rent bikes to cycle around Nami so that could also be another option when you are here. A thing to note is that you might need to take note of the ferry arrival and departure hours as during peak seasons where there are a lot of tourist, it might be challenging for you to get on your ferry. So if you are a time sensitive traveler you might want to factor this in!

Nami Island is a very beautiful place that I would definitely recommend. There you can walk under the tall trees or stroll along the riverside to enjoy the tranquility. The presence of lovely snowmen and the setting up of fireplaces add warmth to the island, which is especially great in the cold winter with snow fall. There are also wildlife like peacocks and rabbits on the island.

Apart from the beautiful nature, there are also facilities on the island, like a little train, song museum, bicycles, decorations, shops and restaurants, etc. I have tried the Nami sausage with honey mustard sauce which I found it very delicious. It costs ₩3,000 and I think it is worth trying.

Though it takes me 2 hrs to get to the island from city centre by taking the metro, taxi and ferry, I would still highly recommend the place. I am also interested in coming again in future in other seasons like autumn to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

It was a wonderful getaway from the hustle and bustle of Seoul. Mesmerising nature that any photo at any spot would look wonderful. We walked around and sat in different spots. Got some ice cream and snacks. There were some interesting looking sculptures too and saw few squirrels and rabbits and peacocks too. There are activities such as cycling and water sports. It is a nice place for couples, friends, families to spend the day. I would like to visit it in different seasons I bet it would be marvellous.

While the island has some pretty scenery, it is almost always packed to the point where it’s impossible to enjoy it. Have patience as there will be multitudes of individuals and groups posing for that perfect Instagram. So if going for scenery and photography I’d recommend a different place. I do think they’ve done a great job with the infrastructure to help mitigate the crowds. Strolling the island for casual leisure and family time is great, they have a lot there for children. I’d recommend grabbing food on the island. The Hotteok (sweet Korean pancake) is delicious. Zip-lining in is our favorite way to enter. Visiting the nearby Garden of Morning Calm, Petite France, and/or Gangchon Rail Cars would round the day out nicely. I love the sign they added for the Tulip Tree that fell during typhoon Lingling, very comical.

Nami is and independent island and It brings us to another world on this island. Beautiful in the fall, the vibrant colours from the well landscaped trees, plants flora and fauna. Beautiful in any angles makes beautiful picture postcards.

Many came here for the Kdrama setting which we have no clue or knew about until we saw a worn out poster that many were taking photos with/of.

We're just happy to be strolling this island for a day and enjoying snacks and local food, cafes. Good place to (must) visit with friends or with family.

Direct bus from Myeongdong or longer route by train. Then short ferry trip.

We visited this as the 2nd leg of a day tour we booked via Klook.

The number of people visiting Nami Island detracted slightly from my overall experience. I do however acknowledge that the infrastructure has been well developed enough to ensure that it never got too squeezy. Toilets were readily available throughout the island too.

I liked the heated interior of the ferry. Much welcome given the freezing conditions.

Recommended as long as you do not expect to take perfect Winter Sonata photos!

Nami Island is 3 hours away from Seoul, and we joined a group tour to check it out. Usually group tours would tag on the Garden of Morning Calm as another attraction, along the way. Both were good attractions. When you arrive at the pier, the ferry ride to Nami Island is short, and frequencies are good. We went on a cold, windy day, and given the circumstances, we still enjoyed the visit. We were fans of the Winter Sonata (2002 Korean drama), and there were landmarks to note the location of the film shooting. The tree-lined boulevards were really nice, and has that serene, nature effect! Too bad there was no snow yet... or it could be quite a scene :)

Nami Island is an island in the middle of the North Han River about an hour from Seoul by train or intercity train. it has lots of nice trails and very nice views especially pretty in the fall and spring. You can stay on the island resort. it has an old fashioned vibe.

Though quite a ride from Seoul, it is a must out-of-town trip.

Hire a van with driver to make the commute comfortable. Drop by Petit France first since it is on the way.

Gets too crowded especially around lunch time. Better eat lunch back at the coast and not here in the island.

Love the trees and the view of the lake. Lots of photo opportunities.

Visited Nami Island during autumn, the autumn foliage is amazing. There are several paths that lead to different trees being planted on the island. scrap any planned path you may have, just go with the flow. Cater more time for the visit to Nami island and do take note of sunset time. the island is boring after sunset.
