Nami Island, Korean Style Garden of Morning Calm & Rail Bike

1. Nami Island, Korean Style Garden of Morning Calm & Rail Bike

Nami Island is a half-moon-shaped isle, and on it is the grave of General Nami, who led a great victory against the rebels in the 13th year of the 7th king of the Joseon Dynasty - King Sejo, who reigned from 1455 to 1468. Nami Island also declared its cultural independence and was reborn as the Naminara Republic. It has its own national flag, anthem, currency, passport, phone cards, stamps, orthography, and even a certification of citizenship. The Garden of Morning Calm is a 300,000-meter garden that attracts an array of frequent families, friends, couples and photographers who come to explore the beautifully sculpted garden flowers, trees and pathways of this stunning garden paradise. If you choose the rail bike option, you will see an old train track in the beautiful countryside that has been converted into a serene rail bike track. With this option, visit the rail bike station in the morning before you visit Nami Island and The Garden of Morning Calm. If you select the lunch add-on at check-out, you can try the region's signature dish, Dakgalbi (Korean style spicy chicken) and fried rice, served with water and soft drinks. You will have 2-3 hours at each venue and will be dropped off at Dongdaemun History & Culture Park Station, Myeongdong Station, or Hongik University Station. On the non-rail bike option, you will be dropped off between 5:30 PM and 6:00 PM, and on the rail bike option you will return between 7:00 PM and 8:00 PM.

Superb discovery !! The island is really pretty between nature and culture (exhibitions of various artists) in addition it was very beautiful !! Despite the cold .. staying there for 3 and a half hours is more than enough in winter! Mika our guide was top and always smiling and punchy !! Adorable!! By cons the visit of the illuminated garden can be done in 1 hour The price is a bit expensive but we were not disappointed

Wonderful trip from beginning to end. The day went to plan without any mishaps. Tour guide Lammi spoke excellent English and was very interactive. The morning calm was exceptionally beautiful and worth a visit in addition to Nami island. The rail bike was fun with beautiful views! Advise a coat and a comfortable pair of shoes at this time of year.

The weather was good and we had enough time in both locations. You can see things, nature, chill + eat lunch or some snacks. Our guide Coco was nice and helpful. We recommend this tour for sure

Perfect day, great trip, awesome tour guide and beautiful scenery. A fantastic tour with the Autumn leaves looking spectacular. would highly recomend.

The tour is worth it, all on time and the guide gave us the most important information and was always attentive to the group.
