Review :
Mr. Toilet house is a very interesting, funny, fun and interesting museum. Museum are in a small area, and away from city. But, if you are type of person who love taking photo with funny posture and love having fun. This place will be perfect for you! They have a lot of statue of toilet from ancient Rome, European medieval time until present time.  On 2rd floor they have artifact and photograph to remember the life of Mr. Sim Jae Duck and his contribution to toilet culture movement. Is a fun place to visit.

Review : Go on Weekday. Because during holidays or weekends there’s a lot of people visiting Nami Island and it will be very crowded. Even on weekdays, there’s a lot of people visiting and is difficult to take photo especially the famous spot for photo.  But, the island is very beautiful and relaxing. As you walk through the forest of tree you will see small animals (rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks and even ostriches ) freely wondering around. On the island, they have Chinese, Korean and Italy restaurant. And most important thing, every staff speak ENGLISH you won’t have any language barrier.  If you are a fan of winter sonata and at the same time a nature lover you definitely will LOVE this island.
