Korea Trip Day 4: Nami Island & Hangang Tour

On the fourth day of our Korea trip, we went to Nami Island. Nami Island was the shooting location of the Korean drama, Winter Sonata. Nami Island is located 63 km from Seoul. In order to go to Nami Island, we had to take a bus and continued with ferry ship to reach it. There were many spots of Winter Sonata scenes in Nami Island, such as the tree lanes, the first kiss spot, and so on. I didn’t watch Winter Sonata, so I couldn’t identify which were the spots for shooting Winter Sonata. We walked around almost all places in the Nami Island, and also bought some food there. There were some hearts shaped on the ground made of leaves. People usually took pictures near the hearts or at the shooting spots of Winter Sonata. We also took pictures at several places in Nami Island.

We went back from Nami Island to Seoul in the afternoon. Because the bus stop was near Insa Dong, we walked to Insa Dong and after that we went to board on Hangang River Tour Ship. There were two tour courses, A and B courses. We could choose whether to go up or down the river. The price of the Hangang Tour was different depending on the time and items included in the ship. We took the tour with 16,000 Won. It was expensive, but we could find no more suitable time besides that one, so we took it.

Standing outside on the ship was so cold. It was winter and the wind was blowing and made it even colder. But the view we could see on the ship was beautiful. We could see the night view of Han River at night. (The two photographs below were taken by my friend)
