Autumn in South Korea: Day 4 Nami, Island Petite France and Garden of morning calm

It's my first time to experience autumn season! :)

Our 4th day in South korea is in Nami island. yes! one of the most known tourist attraction in south korea because of the kdrama "Endless Love" (I'm a fan too.. papa cholo lol). For me, nami island is the highlights that day because it's picture perfect for autumn season plus the maple leaves are full blown when we get there unlike when we are in jeju island. We also went to Petite france in the afternoon and Garden of the morning calm after sunset. This three attractions are good for the whole day and far in the city.

I've been to Japan and now in south korea, the good thing of 1st world country is that they have a very good transportation like train, that can really benefit the whole country. Haist! how I wish we have like this in the Philippines.*sorry off topic*

Left: Chicken and tteokbokki (KRW 5000). I'm not a fan of tteokbokki but I like this combination, it's like 1 full meal (chicken and rice cake) 
Right:Chicken teriyaki on stick 


Petite France

- Petite france is also popular among kdrama fans like me because of the series "My love for the star" starring Kim Soo-hyun and Jun-Hyun.

Garden of the morning calm 
- Entrance Fee: KRW 8,000
- I think it was 5:30pm when we got here in garden of the morning calm, it was not morning anymore lol. But we still got a moment until 6:30pm. At night it looked magical because of the lights surrounded at the garden.   

We are the last group standing!
