Nami Island - Part 1

Warning: Please do not follow our silly mistake. Mine actually. I did not tell the officer at Cheonggyanni station that we wanted to go to Gapyeong Station. I just told her to Chuncheon and hence she gave me ticket to Namcuncheon station for 5,100 won. If you want to go to Namiseom/Nami Island - tell the officer that you want to go to Gapyeong Station for 3,800 won (the price as of now). After that take a taxi/bus. We took taxi for around 4,000 won.
Ticket to Naminara is 8,000 won per head inclusive of return ferry.

Warning number 2: Don't buy the corn/oksusu there cause it was tasteless. We called it 'Jagung Ayam' - Corn for the chicken. Seriously!! It was tasteless but the potatoes/gamja was amazing!!

hi zarina. nk tanya. nak gi nami island, kena ade visa? & it costs krw 20k? wow.
your personal opinion, nami island is a must ke tak? hihi.thanks

Hi anonymous,
Thanks for dropping by.
If you check the website, the visa is just a term for admission ticket into Nami Island.

If you check the english leaflet - the ferry + admission (roundtrip) is only 8,000 won.

You don't have to pay more than that unless you want to have 1 year membership for 15,000 won.

Hi SD,
Just take the subway to Cheongyanni subway station which is 2 stop away. After that go to the counter and purchase the ticket to gapyeong station. The officer will tell you which platform to wait.

hahaha...i've tried it once when i shopped at Namdaemun's glutinous corn..that's why it's tasteless and taste like rice..but i couldn't finish it. The smell of the steamed corns were so attempting,but once you eat them..ewww~ i lost my appetite..hahahaha~ MALAYSIA CORNS are the best =)

Hi mello,

I did ask my Korean friends about this corn.

Apparently there's one place which is very famous for sweet corn in Gangwondo area but I wonder why all the corns I had tasted were still tasteless. Aigoo.. to go to Malaysia for the sweet one ^^

Hi anonymous,
It's very hard to gauge as it all depend on the weather.
According to my experience, we went there early november around 2-3rd Nov.

saya nak ke korea 12november2012.
weather kt sana mmg sejuk sgt2 eh? sbb sy tgk gambar u semua pakai winter jacket.apa suggestion pakaian kt sna? kne apaki thermal wear ke? hope u help me. tQ.
Zarina BT2K said…
Clover leaf,

it all depennds on the weather that time. I can't confirm much now..but for tropical people who don't have 4 seasons it's better to bring winter jacket.

thermal wear tu tak payah la..just layer your clothes will do..

anyway thermal clothes in Malaysia so expensive..kat sini about RM30 -RM40 dah dpt satu set dekat Dongdaemun
