Narnia Comes To Life In Nami Island

Located just outside Seoul, Nami Island, also known as Namiseom, provides a quick escape from city life with its beautiful tree-lined roads and stunning scenery ?.

The classic, iconic drama Winter Sonata featured this island, popularizing it into a must-go tourist spot for every visitor to Seoul! The island itself is peaceful and breathtakingly alluring all year round, so whether you’re a K-drama fan or not, this place can’t be missed at all! But their winter season holds a soft spot for us (we can’t experience winter here ?)!

One look at this picture, and our stresses just float away (sorry boss, we’re working hard, we promise!). It’s simply so picturesque, and you could almost imagine a little beaver dam at the side, just like in Narnia! Well, they dont have beavers, but perhaps you could spot these little cute ducks waddling along! ?

Walking between the snow-covered sparse trees seems like a page out of a fairytale! It's like the first time Lucy Pevensie saw Narnia the first time, but for us, every visit there truly is as breathtaking and jaw-dropping as the first time! Take us back now, please! ?

Have we convinced you enough to go to Nami Island, because we’ve pretty much packed our bags by the end of this! If you need more tips, itineraries, or personal experiences while travelling around South Korea, check it out here! ?
