I am back to Namiseom Island, in a different season, with a different person, and that makes it a different experience all in all.
Going to Namiseom Island isn’t at all difficult by public transport but it definitely took us quite a bit of time. First of all, we took their subway from where we are staying (Apgujeong Station) to Gapyeong Station along the Gyeongchun Line. That is more than an hour ride on the subway.
Upon reaching Gapyeong Station, unlike what I did in 2013, Sis and I took a taxi to the Nami Island Ferry Terminal instead of hopping onto the 6,000Won Shuttle Bus. It is advisable to only make use of their Shuttle Bus Services if you are visiting more than 1 destination/attraction along the serviced route. Taxi costs us less than 4,000Won/trip. Upon reaching, we are surrounded by tons of tourists and locals. It is, one word, noisy. We proceeded to buy our Ferry & Entrance Ticket to Namiseom Island. And we are on board! We took a photo out in the sun before hiding indoor. Didn’t managed to take a photo at the Entrance as there were simply too many people obstructing views. Here’s our 1st photo in Namiseom Island with a Christmas Tree. I was wondering why is it a Christmas Tree when it is JULY. We took some photos before entering the more-exciting places of Namiseom Island. Done with some touring and settled for our lunch. Our tuna bento rice and kimchi pancake. Its yummy! Really in need of Ice Cream to save us! Yeah! We managed to get some photos taken at the Entrance before going back to main land.
And it is another long travel back to Seoul Shopping district – Myeongdong. Our last day of shopping to finish all our Korean Won. It started drizzling after some shopping and so we hide into a BBQ Place for Dinner. It is quite a famous BBQ Place. Satisfied with our Dinner and continue with more shopping. We have already buy enough of cosmetics and got nowhere else to spend our money. So we decided to buy more tidbits as sovenirs. Managed to find an underground mart selling Korean Tidbits but it is at a higher price as compared to Lotte Mart. Well, what to do??? Haha!
After leaving the mart, my last stop is at OST to buy watches! Went home with bags of buys and started packing out luggages! Packed a total of 4 luggages (2 of my own and 2 of sis’s). That’s the problem you faced travelling with a baby sis who don’t have the skill of packing luggage.
