Nami Island

Nami Island was a lot of fun. There is a lot of beautiful artwork, and the plants and animals are fantastic.

Winter Sonata was filmed on Nami Island




Nami Island is an enchanting place. Most people go there because the movie “Winter Sonata” was filmed there. Sadly, the star of “Winter Sonata,” Park Yong-Ha, recently killed himself. In spite of this, it’s a very lovely island.

Nami Island has a lot of really wonderful artwork. There are a few galleries, but there are also several sculptures around the island.

In addition to the artwork, there are several varieties of wildlife. Ostriches, rabbits, squirrels, and a variety of colorful small birds roam the island freely.

Love is certainly the overall theme of the island, which makes it an excellent place to take a loved one. There are several hearts around the island.

Many couples take pictures with the various hearts around the island.

Renting a bike is an excellent way to see the island. Unfortunately, the bicycle-rental area is kind of a hike from the boat dock. But if you follow the main path, you’ll come to it. There are several lovely trails that you can ride on.

Take time to stop and look at all the interesting art in random places.

I spent about two hours on Nami Island. I could have spent a lot longer there, as there is a lot to do. I could certainly see spending a day there. There are restaurants and even a place that serves beer.

If you visit Gangwon Province in South Korea, I recommend taking a tour of Nami Island. It’s definitely beautiful, and touring the island was a wonderful experience
