  • Nami Island, Petite France & Optional Rail Bike Tour

    1. Nami Island, Petite France & Optional Rail Bike Tour

    Located just 63 kilometers away from Seoul, Nami Island is a popular getaway spot for both locals and tourists. The area is famous for its magnificent tree lined roads. There are different activities available on the island or you can simply relax and enjoy the wonderful views in the area.  Petite France is a little vibrant French village that stands out with its brightly colored buildings. This village consists of many photo-worth spots that were featured on dramas and variety shows, such as “Beethoven Virus”, “Secret Garden”, “Running Man” and the most recent, “You Who Came From The Stars”. If you choose a "Rail Bike" option, you will see an old train track in the beautiful countryside that has been converted into a serene rail bike track for you to spend some quality time among nature with your friends and family. With this option, you will visit the Rail Bike station in the morning...

    Our Tour Guide was Jade. She speaks fluent English and seems knowledgeable about the places to be visited. She gave a little talk about history and some facts. She even recommend a restaurant for lunch (but the food tastes bland in my opinion).

    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.
