Nami nami na, eh eh, waka waka..
Wait.. that ain’t right.

Namiseom is the name, also known as Nami Island.

Located in Chuncheon, South Korea, the island is probably one of the most beautiful places to see in Korea. Period.

There are two ways on getting onto the island. One is via a ferry.

And the other, though pricey, recommended. Is via a zip line from the mainland to the island. And oh yes, it was fun.

Well you have got to be on par with certain height and weight restrictions. After which you get to head up the tower where you’d be ziplining from.

Breathtaking and magnificent views. Though it was cold as crap up there.

After going through a mandatory safety talk on how to not be an ass on the zipline down. We waited for our turn. And then when the ziplines returned. We sat on, strapped in, and it was an awesome ride down.

The zipline brought us straight into nami island’s wonderous autumn sea of red and yellow trees.

Again, before i leave you with a picture blast, it is worth a note to say that nami island was the setting for the famous korean show winter sonata. Also the thai romance flick hello stranger.

Again. I cannot stress the beauty of the place. Certainly one to put on your list when you’re visiting South Korea. Totally worth the long journey there.

We got on a Ferry and headed back to the main island. (Unfortunately they did not have a zipline back, Darn!)

There are a few ways to get there. Google is your best friend in this case, find one that works out the best for you.

We got up bright and early for this so do remember to factor that in for your trip!

Stay classy all you wanderlusts~
