With a very hectic first day, we woke up very late in the morning on the second day. Nami Island was supposed to be the itinerary for the 3rd day but the weather was alright and we were afraid it’ll rain on Sunday… So, last minute we swapped the plan for 3rd day and headed to Nami Island!
We made haste to the train station, bought the train tickets minutes before it leaves, which is a blessing cause the train interval is more than an hour…
We bought snacks in the train cause we didn’t even have time to grab anything to eat while on the way to the railway station. The train is very packed and there are sitting and standing tickets! We bought 1 sitting and 3 standing cause there are not more sitting tickets. The train ride is about 90min long and there were a lot of people there. Almost sardine-packed.
The destination station’s name is er.. this (in the picture below)
Then, the jetty to Nami island! It’s quite funny though cause the jetty has its own ‘immigration’ centre but we don’t need to show any passports.. Just the tickets.
They call the Nami Island the Naminara Republic.. It’s like a Doraemon-pouch-shaped island.
The insides of Nami island is beautiful! It’s where the film the show ‘Winter Sonata’.. It’s a very romantic place and the scenic view in the island changes according to season. As it’s summer now, it’s filled with greeneries.
The trees here are very nicely aligned in a very straight line…
Not to mention about the many animals that inhabit the island…
After spending 2-3 hours in the island, we took off and head back to Seoul..
Again, another simple dinner and went back to the hotel to change for the next item for the night..
And just when we thought the night is over after clubbing, we decided to go for supper with Beer & Fried Chicken!
The fried chicken is very very delicious and unhealthy.. haha.. The trend there is that people eat this while drinking beer… By the time we finished, it’s about 3-4am already.. Luckily we didn’t have much planned for the next day.. It’s free and easy roaming around Seoul..
