Nami Island is a small island made popular by the Korean telenovela Winter Sonata.All of my Facebook friends who had gone to Korea had visited Nami as part of their trip. This is my 3rd visit to Korea but my first with hubby and therefore we had to visit this island.
Here are the very colorful photos of spring foliage in Name island.
We went on our own to Nami Island from our hotel in Myeongdong.There are different ways of going to Nami Island. One is to join a bus tour that departs early at Pagoda Park in the morning (8 am) and returns at 1 pm or to Do It Yourself (DIY).

Here is a simple guide to go there:
1. From Myeong-dong Station, take LINE 4 train heading to the direction of Chungmuro Station to get to Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station.(Train ticket one way is Won 2,550)
2. When arriving at Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station, change to LINE 2 and take the train heading towards Sindang Station to get to Wangsimni Station.
3.When arriving at Wangsimni Station, change to JUNGANG LINE and take the train heading towards Cheong-nyangni to get to Mangu Station.
4.When arriving at Mangu Station, change to KYEONGCHUN LINE and take the train heading towards Galmae Station to get to Gapyeong Station, which is our destination.
This train journey from Myeongdong to Gapyeong will cost you KRW2550 (Cash) one way.
5. Once you are at Gapyeong Station, you need to take a short taxi trip (costs about KRW3100-6000) to get to the ferry wharf to Nami Island.Local bus just across the taxi stand is also available if you are willing to wait a bit.
Once arriving at the ferry wharf, proceed to the ticket booth to buy your "Entry Visa" to Nami Island which costs KRW10,000, which includes ferry to and from Nami Island and, of course, entry to Nami Island.
Unlike bus trip which has only one departure and return time, you can depart and return to Myeongdong at anytime of the day you want. However, if you prefer less hassle of changing train line, try taking a bus
