Best Time to Go to Nami Island, Korea

Nami Island is great to visit throughout every Korean season. During the springtime, the trees and flowers are in bloom. During summer, the landscape is covered with lush greenery. Autumn brings the turning of the leaves, and winter blankets the island in snow. 

Regardless of which season you choose to visit, it’s definitely less crowded earlier in the day.

    I thought it was a super great place as previous reviews. when we arrived there it was a dull place and not much to see. i would rather go to jeju island.

    This was the first tour of our trip in south korea and everything went smoothly. our tour guide, scott, was very accommodating, friendly, and very patient with us. we have no regrets booking this tour as we were able to go to the places we wanted to go to and the best part was that this was private tour. i highly recommend this tour package. Thank you very much for making our stay in south korea wonderful!
