Nami Island: Winter Wonderland
by Sheena Sy-Gonzales - 3 years, 7 months ago
Nami Island in South Korea is seriously one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to in my entire life. Walking on the roads paved with golden brown leaves, I felt like I was walking inside a fairytale book!
It’s famous for being the shooting place of the Koreanovela “Winter Sonata” (but I didn’t know that, because I don’t watch Koreanovelas.) You don’t need to be fan of the show though to appreciate the charm of the place. Hee! It was so much fun just sitting on the floor and playing with the leaves. (Yes, even though it was freezing cold!)
The only place I’ve been to (as of now) where I feel like I’ve experienced winter and fall at the same time. Of course I was ecstatic; I live in a tropical country.
Also, I am a sucker for tall trees and forest-like places (my husband always jokes about him chopping down a tree and giving it to me as a gift…)
…and the best thing about Nami Island is that everywhere you look, there are just so many trees so you don’t have to worry about waiting for people to finish their photo-op before you can have your own. And there are so many, photo-worthy places.
Nami Island looks different at different seasons. I might be biased, by I think winter season’s the best time to go. My friend visited there during summer/spring time and she never remembered it as something extraordinary. I guess the cool weather also helps in making you feel like you’re in another world.
