Perfect Little Getaway up the Han River

Nami Island

남이섬

Located along the Bukhan River between Gapyeong County and Chuncheon, Nami Island is arguably one of Korea’s most scenic locations, with beautiful tree-lined paths, tons of well-kept gardens, gorgeous views of the surrounding hills and mountains, and a plethora of activities to do. Just an hour-and-a-half away from Seoul, the island is an incredibly popular tourist destination amongst Korean and international tourists alike, especially during the Fall season when the leaves change colors. 

 

Because it was one of the main filming locations of the smash-hit 2002 drama, ‘Winter Sonata’, Nami Island has a reputation for romance, making it very popular amongst couples. There are tons of attractions around the island related to ‘Winter Sonata’, with markers indicating filming locations, as well as a small gallery dedicated to the show and a special ‘Winter Sonata’ statue. There are also a lot of art galleries, small museums, and even special workshop facilities to help people explore their creative side. In case you get tired from exploring all these wonderful attractions, Nami Island has plenty of restaurants and cafes where visitors can relax or grab a bite to eat before continuing their journey exploring the island.
