Namiseon Island has always been a very popular destination for the locals and tourist. Just in the last couple of years, I would say visiting tourists have out proportion the locals, particularly during the autumn foliage season. More shops, cafes and restaurants are established with the sharp rise of tourists in recent years.
As soon as the first ferry starts, over 100 tourists arrive every 10 minutes. It is almost impossible to get any pictures taken without people getting in the way or the other way round. So I took a different approach: go to the island when people are leaving, spend a night in the hotel, and leave when Namiseon Island is packed with tourists the next day.
Look at how many people are packed on the ferry! Of course most of them were standing on the deck to take photos and look at the beautiful scenery, but still. 你看看有多少人在船上？當然很多人都站在甲板上看風景和拍照，真的不少！
This is the only hotel on the island: Jeonggwanru. There are double/twin rooms, Ondol and bungalows. Autumn is the peak season, you will have to book as early as June when the hotel starts to accept booking. The hotel rooms get booked out quickly. 南怡島上有一間酒店：靜觀樓。 有雙人房、韓式榻榻米和一些獨立渡假屋出租。秋天是旺季，六月份開始介紹秋天至冬天預訂，想住就要快。
The reception area of the hotel. The restaurant is on the ground floor as well. Breakfast is not included in the room rate. 酒店大堂，餐廳也在地面這一層，房租是不包早餐的。
There is a small area to hang out on the first floor where most of the hotel rooms are. 房間大部份在一樓，一樓中庭有個小地方讓旅客休息，
All double/twin rooms are themed rooms which means they all look a little differently. This is where I stayed. Very simple. Nice and clean. And there is a balcony. 所有雙人房都有不同設計主題，這間是我選的房間，乾淨整潔，有露台。
The bathroom is also normal. 浴室也正常。
The reason why you want to stay over is because you will enjoy the tranquility and a beautiful morning on the island. 你要在這裡住一個晚上才可以好好享受一個寧靜漂亮的清晨。
This gingko tree path is one of the tourist attraction. Please note that gingko leaves turn yellow earlier than maple trees turn red. So if you time to visit for this, the chance is other maple trees are still green. 銀杏樹路是南怡島的景點之一，但要注意銀杏變黃比紅葉期早，一般在10月中左右。所以如果你來看銀杏，就可能不會看到紅葉高峰期。
I think that the best view is along the river, with shimmering lights on the river and sunlight going through the trees. 我覺得河邊的景色最美：河面泛著閃閃光芒，加上陽光透進森林，很美。
This gingko tree path is more beautiful than the popular one in the middle of Namiseon Island. This is what you stay over for. 這段銀杏步道比大景點還要美，這就是要住在島上的原因。
The spectacular metasequoia tree path is the main spot of Namiseon Island. 這條水杉林步道是南怡島的大景點。
Late October is probably the best time for the very red autumn color. 10月下旬可能是看紅葉的最佳時間。
Namiseon island is a real nice place to see the autumn foliage without having to travel far from Seoul. But I really would avoid the traffic. 春川南怡島的確很美、距離首爾又近。但我還是建議要避開人流，因為真是太擠擁了！
