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 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.
Earliest and best time to be in Gapyeong already: 9 am (to be able to catch the 9:10 am bus)
A. Garden of the Morning Calm
B. LE PETITE FRANCE
since we were here around lunch time already, we decided to eat light snacks at Le Petite
how the place looks like:
C. Nami Island
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 spring time!! I can’t wait to be back during autumn!

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