    It was great to enjoy jazz festival in discounted price offered by Klook! And this klook bicycle service was impressive too. The only thing I wish to be fixed was that they could have clearer sign for where prebooked guests should get the ticket. I had to go back and forth btw booths due to vague signs. Except this, everything was perfect!

    Jaraseum island is located in a scenic environment, surrounded by mountains and along the river. You are able to get to Gapyeong by subway, which made it convenient to just go for the day. Be advised, it's best to bring picnic mats/blankets since most people generally camp out for the day on the lawn. Also, it tends to get quite chilly at night, so dress warm. Great music, very well organised. Definitely recommend!

    You won’ find a better romantic festival in Korea. It’s incredibly amazing festival day and night. Great musicians, great music for you. And very kind staffs who care about your convenience. I’m looking forward to next years festival beginning today.

    It is very good because it is a jazz performance that can not be easily seen but the disadvantage is that the performance is not held here and there but only one stage is open every afternoon and it seems to be a disadvantage that I could not see the am performance because I was standing in line.

    It was good to watch jazz live in wide open space. It is a little chilly during the day, but it drops to 7 degrees at night (14 degrees in Seoul). Prepare two spots, lay it in a double, and pack a thin padding. I will go to next year ~~ !!! ^^
