Exploring Nami Island, Le Petite France, Garden of the Morning Calm without rushing and squeeing with tourists

Gapyeong City is famous for it’s best tourist attraction – Nami Island. Unfortunately, not everyone knows that Gapyeong City also has Le Petite France and Garden of the Morning calm which is just as beautiful as Nami Island.


I’ll share with you guys how we explored Nami Island, Le Petite France and Garden of the Morning Calm without squeezing with all tourists and without rushing! (as what I wrote for this blog title 😂)

First things first, how to go to Gapyeong City

Get down at Gapyeong (Gyuongchun line), there is only one exit as you arrive at the station.

Pay 6,000 won (cash) to the driver as soon as you get in. The driver will give you a ticket. You can use this ticket to go to Nami Island, Le Petite France and Garden of the Morning Calm via the Gapyeong City Tour bus.

How we were able to squeeze in the three places in one day – we went to these places in this order:
GARDEN OF THE MORNING CALM – LE PETITE FRANCE – NAMI ISLAND

I noticed that people usually visit Nami Island first – hence there will be a lot of tourists from morning to around after lunch, so head first to the farthest venue and the “least visited” place among the three.

By the time you get to Nami Island, tourists are already leaving! Perfect time to take photos and explore the place.

This is not my first time in Nami, I’ve already seen Nami during winter and now springtime!! I can’t wait to be back during autumn!

all photos were taken using an iPhone / Fujifilm x-A3 18-55mm

So that’s it! My tip for all of you who would like to explore Gapyeong City.
