Pocheon Herb Island

Since we really got nothing to do at Dolce Vita Pension as it’s winter, we can’t swim and we can’t use the sauna outdoor, so we decided to visit Pocheon Herb Island (포천 허브아일랜드 / 香草岛乐园) which happen to be a filming location of Runningman.

From Dolce Vita Pension, we get Jiyong Appa to called a cab for us for a 3 hours tour to Herb Island. The journey from the pension to Herb Island is about 30 minutes, and it’s quite expensive too!

For the 3 hours return trip from Dolce Vita Pension to Herb Island cost about KRW100,000 (Approx. RM 368).


You can visit the place during day time as well but you will missed all this amazing views, but if you decided to visit at night,

Please don’t ever do it during winter!

I’m not joking but the frozen fountain behind me is REAL. REAL ICE. REAL CHILL. REAL DEATH. =.=”

The episode that Runningman filmed here was Season 1, Episode 109.

It’s actually possible to make a 1 day trip to Pocheon Herb Island from Seoul too!


Open all year round.
