Petite France

After we left Nami Island, we went looking for the Gapyeong Tour Bus that will take us to Petite France. The bus stop is just right outside the 7-11 store, a short walking distance from the Ferry Wharf.

The Gapyeong Tourist Bus costs KRW 5,000 per person for the entire trip. You can hop on and hop off to every tourist site. Just show the ticket to the bus driver.



Petite France is a French Cultural village set in the Korean countryside. It consists of 16 French-style buildings where visitors can lodge and experience French food, clothing and household culture.

The village contains a memorial hall dedicated to Saint-Exupery, the author of the celebrated French novel, Le Petit Prince and as such it is called the Little Prince theme park.


I think I’m home. Let me tell you why…



I love The Little Prince book!





I love vintage and antique stuff.










Petite France kind of freaked me out. Not in a scary way. I just felt like the things I am into are all in this place. I have been selling antiques and dinnerwares for 2 years now.   






and I love this kind of bedframe…




and the toile sink…





and this!








There’s a doll museum.




This last doll picture is mine. I mean these are my personal collection I have kept for years.  I just thought I’d show you.

I can call Petite France my own museum.😂 

As soon as we got down from the village, we saw the same tour bus we took to get there waiting for passengers. So off we run…   


We got off at Cheongpyeong Station for our train back to Myeongdong. There’s another place you can actually visit from the tour bus called the Garden of Calm but we were so tired we thought we’d come back next Spring.
