Korea Trip: Nami Island

23 Nov

Went there at November 2011. So I could get the autumn feel. So excited because there’s no autumn season here, in Indonesia 🙂

What’s there at Nami Island?

Nami Island located in Bangha-ri, Namsan-myeon, Chuncheon-si was not an island originally. It is an island of the Bukhangang River, which was made as a result of the construction of Cheongpyeong Dam. Its circumference is about 6Km, and its area is 430,000. There are a grassplot of 260,000 in the center of the island, and chest-nut trees and poplars around it. This place is fit for a walkway. (via lifeinkorea.com)

To go there, we must cross the river by a ferry. The view from the ferry deck:

It didn’t take long to cross the river. Just about 10 minutes. Then here we come, Nami Island!

Had no idea why it's called "republic"..

The wonderful trees at Nami Island:

do you get the romantic feel? 😀

There’s also flowers at Nami Island..

who's that girl? That's me! haha..

If you lucky enough, you’ll find this too..


Take a closer look at the leaves:

Maple leaves..


I edited this one, because the weather was so cloudy..is it too much? >__<

Ginko leaves..

Found this beautiful spot. Guess what was the green things attached at the bridge..leaves? No! It’s pressed bottle!

doesn't look cheesy..does it?:D

Korean people really know how to reuse things. They make lots of decoration from wasted bottles, cans, and I saw kitchen utensils used as decoration! Too bad I couldn’t take picture of it..I only got picture of these pressed cans, used as a stage decoration:

All in all, so many good spots at Nami Island..every view is just beautiful and breathtaking. Also, this island always has romantic ambience..so many couple walk hand-in-hand, couple riding bicycle together, happy newlyweds with their kids..(I went there with my family. Wish my bf was there too..haha)

This island also famous because  popular Korean drama, “Winter Sonata”, was filmed in here. You might have watched it. There are Winter Sonata billboard, and a house full of photos of “winter-sonata-look-a-like-pose”.  I’m not big fans of Bae Yong Jun (even, I wonder what was good from him. Sorry, BYJ fans..:D).

Well, that’s all for now. I recommend you to visit Nami Island if you happen to go to Korea. Don’t forget to bring your loved one to take romantic photos 😉

Thanks for reading!
