Autumn: Best Season to Visit Nami Island

the front gate of Nami Island

Everybody loves autumn, I mean...who doesn't? the air is quite refreshing, definitely not so hot but not as cold as winter, the leaves turn into red and yellow and fall into the street. Something that I can't witness in my tropical country, Indonesia.

On last October I went to Nami Island which located in Chunceon, South Korea. The entrance fee is 10.000 for korean and 8.000 for foreigner, isn't it nice to be a foreigner? ^_^ 
To be able to visit Nami Island, we have to ride a ferry for around 10 minutes, but as foreigner we should give our passport to them beforehand, don't worry, we will get our passport back once we get out from Nami Island. The ferry will go back and forth every 20 minutes to bring us to/from Nami Island.

so large >_<

beautiful trees, I feel like in korean drama, hahaha...

Speaking of korean drama, Nami Island is one of the filming location of the most famous korean drama: Winter Sonata, there's saying that Winter Sonata spread the Korean Wave throughout asia and worldwide.

Winter Sonata statue, I wish it was the real Bae Yong Joon

Not only offering its nature beauty but Nami Island also has a lot of places to visit such as drama gallery, music intrument museum, UNICEF hall, etc...and if we are tired of walking (because Nami Island is very large) we can rent bicycle which cost 3.000-10.000 won depends on the type of bicycle and how long we use.

Now that I remember Indonesia has numerous islands too, can Indonesian government make one of them to become a tourism spot as interesting as Nami Island?
