A Day in Gapyeong County | Nami Island & Petite France

Nami Island, Petite France, and The Garden of the Morning Calm are both located in Gapyeong County it is about an hour by train from Seoul city. 

How to get to Nami Island, Petite France, and Garden in the Morning Calm.

From Seoul City ride a train to Yongsan station from there buy an ITX ticket bound to Gapyeong fare is 5000won. 

From gapyeong station wait for a bus and buy a day pass ticket from the driver where you can use it going to Nami, Petite France and  The Garden of the Morning Calm cost at 6000won just keep it until the end of the day. The first destination of the bus is the Nami ferry terminal, from Nami Immigration booth buys a ticket to Nami Island fare is 10,000won.
The ferry leaves every 15 minutes and they also have a free Wi-Fi on-board but expect that the connection is a little bit slow.

Nami Island or locally called it. Namiseom is a half-moon shape island surrounded by the Han River. The Island is famous for Korean drama scenes like Winter Sonata, and  you can enjoy a stick of Nami Sausage while walking and enjoying the island. Nami is a charming island in the Winter season. Unfortunately, there was no snowfall when I visited. 

After enjoying the island, you can go next to Petite France. It’s less than 30 minutes drive from Nami ferry terminal. Wait for the bus to arrive and show your day pass ticket before embarking.

Petite France is a French-themed cultural village in Korea, you can enjoy the ambiance, and they also have a petite Eiffel Tower. This village is also known in the Korean drama "The Legend of the Blue Sea," where one scene was taken. The entrance fee is 6000won.

Go and visit The Garden of the Morning Calm after petite France, but unfortunately, I did not visit the place because of lack of time. From petite France, you can ride a bus again and show your day pass ticket. I am not sure how much is the entrance fee is since I was unable to visit.
