Gapyeong is a small town, famous all over Korea for pine nuts(찻) and Nami island(남이섬). In October, Gapyeong hosts the annual International Jazz Festival on Jara island(자라섬). Gapyeong is popular with people taking a weekend away from Seoul. It can become busy on the weekends with people coming to stay in the many pensions in the surrounding area. The area is very mountainous so hiking and MTB are popular things do do here.

The train station is located a little way away from the town center. You can take a taxi (~3,000 won) or walk (15-20 minutes). When you come out of exit 1 of the station (there is only one exit) turn left and follow the road until you come to a T-junction. Right at the T-junction will take you to Nami island, left will take you towards town and Jara island.
