Family Trip to Seoul - Day 4

Prior to our arrival in Seoul, we booked a 10-hour minivan with driver service for ourselves. The driver/tour guide arrived very early at our hotel and we started our adventure as soon as we were done with our breakfast. The itinerary planned for the day itself was done with the booking company via Whatsapp and they were super helpful in giving suggestion. I was glad the day trip was planned smoothly without any major hiccup.

First stop was at Nami Island! After more than an hour plus of car ride, we finally reached the ferry wharf at Gapyeong. There are 2 ways to get to Nami Island, you can either take a ferry over or zipline your way across to the island. 

All of us took the most conventional & economical way to reach the island.

If you are a fan of K-drama just like me, you will see the familiar sight of some scenes shown in "Winter Sonata".

After the Nami Island tour ended, we took a return ferry ride back in time for lunch. Our driver had made our lunch reservation at Kko Kko Chuncheon Dakgalbi.

Food was nicely cooked and warmly served the moment we sat down in the restaurant. Thanks to the driver/tour guide who arranged all these for us.

After the hearty lunch, the next stop was Gangchon Rail Park. The special part about this place was we were able to cycle on the old railroad tracks and enjoyed the scenery at the same time. It was a good workout for the young and the old after a meal.

There are two-seaters and four-seaters options to choose from so our strategy on that day was to pair up some elderly people with young people in a group to evenly distribute the amount of strength needed to cycle together. The whole journey is 6km which takes about 40 minutes to finish the whole course from the bike station to Nanggu Village.

When we alighted at Nanggu Village, we rested for a while and boarded onto a Romance Train which brought us back to the bike station.

Last stop of the day, Petite France!

By the time we reached there was about 1 hour to closing time. Most of the activities were finished by the time we were there. A few shops were still opened for tourists and we managed to watch a performance as well. We tried to grab every opportunity to take as many pictures as possible before the sky turned dark.

Albeit it was a short visit to Petit France but it was fun to be able to "experience" what it was like in a replica of a French village.

Sharing what we did on Day 5 of our Seoul trip.
