Traveling to South Korea never be complete if you don’t visit the ‘fake’ island named Namiseom island. Became famous as the main location for famous K-drama early 2000s named Winter Sonata, Namiseom island itself became one of prettiest places I’ve visited during my autumn trip at South Korea. To make it cuter, even it’s just only located at Chuncheon which around 90 minutes from Seoul, It feel like we visit another country name Naminara Republic because all tourist traveled to Namiseom island by passing an immigration gate and having entrance ticket as a visa, such a creative local tourism!
Jade Garden Natural Arboretum is another beautiful location outside Seoul. Located at Gangwon province which is about 90 minutes from downtown Seoul, Jade Garden became a famous attraction based on Kdrama The Winter the Wind Blows which spend most of its shooting time at Jade Garden whereas the red brick house is also became Oh Young’s -female main character played by Song Hye Kyo- house. Based on those facts? How could I resist not to go there?
