Autumn… the cosy period when the colours of the leaves turn into amazing colours.
This is why I think that October is the best time to go to Nami Island (or Namiseom), a half-moon shaped isle located around two hours from Seoul. Going to Nami Island is often high on the list of things to experience on a trip to Seoul.
Just look at these beautiful trees and colours!
How to get to Nami Island from Seoul
We booked the trip through Klook. There we got a ticket that included return bus ticket from Seoul and the ferry ticket. You can also get there by subway, which is a bit cheaper.
We left Seoul with the bus at 8:30 am and got back to our dorm around 7 pm (there was a lot of traffic).
The ferry to the island works really smoothly and went often. And something to try for next time: you can actually get to the island by zip-wire and it looked really fun!
What to do in Nami Island
The island is small but you can walk around taking pictures of different trees and animals, stop at a café or restaurant or take a small boat around the island or why not rent a bike to get around the island quicker.
We spent our time just enjoying the atmosphere, eating and taking pictures. And naming the animals. We spent around 4 hours on the island which was a good amount of time. Overall we had a really nice day there and the weather was perfectly nice and sunny.
EDIT: I went to Nami also in late November and it was not even close to being as good as it was in October! So to get the best autumn feeling means to go in October or earlier. I imagine the island is also pretty in late spring, summer and when the island is covered in snow.
