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 before your visit to Nami Island and Petite France.  If you choose the "Lunch" add-on at check-out, you can try the region's signature dish, Dakgalbi (Korean style spicy chicken) and fried rice, served water and soft drinks.

Superb discovery !! The island is really pretty between nature and culture (exhibitions of various artists) in addition it was very beautiful !! Despite the cold .. staying there for 3 and a half hours is more than enough in winter! Mika our guide was top and always smiling and punchy !! Adorable!! By cons the visit of the illuminated garden can be done in 1 hour The price is a bit expensive but we were not disappointed

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).

One and half hour in Petite France wasn’t enough time to see everything. Loved Nami Island magnificent garden. Would love to come back in Spring. Kelly our tour guide was very helpful.

It was so much fun. Our tour guide, Ms. Joy was so helpful even find a halal restaurant for us to have lunch. Thank you Joy! ❤️

The tour is worth it, all on time and the guide gave us the most important information and was always attentive to the group.
