Let’s take a walk along the “Forest of Sweethearts”. Junsang and Yoojin kissed at the first in this forest.
Even there will be warm greetings from ostriches, rabbits, deer and other animals which live in the forest freely.
Namiseom Island was formed as a result of the construction of the Cheongpyeong Dam. It is a half moon shaped (462,809§³) isle, and on it is the grave of General Nami, who led a great victory against the rebels in the 13th year of the 7th king of the Joseon Dynasty, King Sejo (reign 1455 ~ 1468). Namiseom Island is 63 km away from Seoul in the direction of Chuncheon, and is famous for its beautiful tree lined roads. The island is 30 minutes away from Chuncheon and an hour away from suburbs of Seoul. Since it is not far from Seoul, many couples and families come to visit.
A special feature of Namiseom Island is that there are no telephone poles. This is because all electric wires were built underground to keep the natural feeling of the landscape. The complex is 553,560 square yards with chestnut trees and poplar trees around the isle. In the middle of the isle, there is a grass field about 316,320 square yards. It is composed of education and training facilities, camping sites, swimming pools and water-sports facilities for motorboats and water skiing. There is also a theme park with merry-go-rounds, a shooting range, roller skating rink, and there are lodging facilities such as resort villas and bungalows.
A 150-year-old residence has been brought here all the way from France and there is a gallery showing the works of Saint Exupery, as well as the Orgel House, which features beautiful antique music boxes. A variety of exhibitions and hands-on activities are available all year-round and there are also accommodation facilities. This is one of the only places in Korea to experience French culture, and a trip here can also be combined with a visit to Namiseom Island and Homyeong Lake nearby.
“Petite France,” located in Gapyeong-gun in Gyeonggi-do, was constructed based on Little Prince.
This theme park was used as a location for a Korean drama, Bethoven Virus.
A lot of props and photos and autographs which are related to the drama are displayed.
The western style buildings and a carpet of yellow flowers on the hills entertain the view with a boudless prospec
