Petite France– filming site of drama You Who Came from the Star, Running Man ep 40(the one with Nickhun and Taecyeon)/French cultural village/very vintage architecture/something like a theme park just that there’s not rides/30 mins away from the dock(Namiseom dock) that goes to Nami Island/Recommend to go Nami Island and Petite France on the same day. Just go to Gapyeong Station, walk out (there’s only one exit) and you see an information booth. The staffs there can speak really good english, ask them for help and they will give you a brochure that states the various timing for the tour bus that tours around the region(bring you to Namiseom dock and Petite Island). It is only 5000krw and you can hop on again after getting down.
We were scheduled to go to Nami Island today but we after checking with the tourist information the night before, we found out that we had to book our bus tickets in advance, which we have not done so. Therefore, we were up early to check out the bus and hoping that they have 2 empty seats for us. Walking through the streets looking for breakfast. It was really cold at -2 degrees. We got the bus / ferry tickets to Nami Island! Finally arrived and waited for our ferry.The place was covered in snow and it was such a pretty sight. As we walked on further and further, we realised that there were lesser and lesser people around. We were not sure if its because they could not be bothered to walk on, or whether it would be too crazy to walk on in this freezing temperature. However the beautiful view seemed to be endless and we were curious to see how beautiful the view would be at the other side of the island. When we arrived here, we could see the half frozen lake. It was too spectacular. We had to pause for a while to take photos and admire the magical view. Even the bare trees looked so gorgeous with the mountain and lake in the background. The lake looks like its mirroring the mountain. We were too awed by the beauty that was right in front of our eyes. We took some time to enjoy the view, I somehow forgot how cold it was when I tried to capture as many photos as possible. All the walking was worth it! We were too in love with the view that we wanted to capture as any photos as possible with both of us inside so we had to be creative! I was also trying to mentally capture the image into my mind. I have never seen anything so beautiful.
