Wednesday, August 5, 2015

This is a continuation of BUDGET TRIP TO SEOUL - SUMMER (PERCUTIAN BUDGET KE SEOUL - MUSIM PANAS) : ARRIVAL AND DAY 1

Assalamualaikum.

I know I know. dah setahun pun tak habis2 lagi cerita trip korea ni. haha sorry! ok let's continue.

We started our trip with Nami Island. The land of Winter Sonata! only for us, minus the winter.

Myeongdong to Nami Island

Myeong Dong station take Line 4 (Heading to Chungmuro station) --> (i) Dongdaemun History and Culture Park Station 
 Change to Line 2 (Sindang Station) --> (ii) Wangsimni station 
Change to Jungang Line (Cheong-nyangni) --> (iii) Mangu station 
Change to Kyeongchun Line (Galmae station) --> (iv) Gapyeong Station
Once reach Gapyeong, take taxi to ferry wharf.

and voila!


Tell me, when you google Nami Island, what do you see?

I bet you'll see tons of pictures of gorgeous looking trees.

Therefore, when we first enter the island, to be greeted by tall, perfectly line rows of trees, we got super excited!

"So you are the famous trees! I bet you don't know how popular you are right? You're like GD IN TREES POPULATION YOU KNOW!"

We took A LOT of pictures with them, the trees we found right after the entrance. We were posing, jumping and posing....
  


only to realise, THOSE ARE NOT THE FAMOUS TREES! THE FAMOUS ONES ARE AT THE BACK! -.-

see what I mean. this is IT. older, bulkier, prettier.


South Korea Budget Trip 101 No. 4: Don't get too excited with the trees at the entrance

I wish I knew that! I wish we had saved our energy for prettier trees. :(

(This year, a lot of my friends went to Korea too. When I see their Instagram updates on Nami Island, I giggle. Poor you guys, nobody told you too right? hehe)

Nami Island is hugeeee! Thanks to all the jumping and posing we did earlier -.-, everything seems blurry.

Kita kat mana ni? Kenapa kita kat sini? Pulau ni berape besar lagi ni? Ishh apa? ko nak pergi sana? pergilah, kitorang tunggu kat sini.
after what appeared to be several hours, we FINALLY reached the middle of the island and suddenly, something very shiny, very metaly , appeared in front of us.

It's a bicycle!!!!!!

Whoever invented it, THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Of course we have to be jakun about it. Where else can you ride a couple bicycle?

Couple bicycle for Ayu and I, a normal one for Atin.

Honestly, I though I forgot how to ride one already. It's been ages. Luckily I didn't. If not, we would have been in so much trouble, because Ayu, she's just ............

hanging her leg. -_________-

We had a lot of fun on the island.






In case you come because of Winter Sonata, oh boy, you are definitely in for a treat.

winter sonata's board with bts pictures of the drama.

it's insane how they can still preserve the bicycle after all these years! or maybe they did replace it, but whatever. what we don't know won't hurt us right? :D

opppssss Ji Woo unnie, you were there?? :D

and did you know Langkawi once had an island-exchange-festival or something with Nami Island?

I think it was like we sent people to Nami and they sent someone to Langkawi to experience each other's culture.

and I think it's from way way back because guess who we sent,

WORLD. 

*Totally unrelated: guess popularity dies down quite fast. A minute you're up so high, another minute you're down. (Side note: I was Felix's fan)

and then we had some more fun before we went somewhere else.
