Direction :
Because it is located close to the presidental palace, security is high and you must carry your passport with you. You can only enter from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and must finish your hike before 5 p.m.

However, if you want to view the fortress wall at night or don't want to worry about carrying a passport, you can access the wall from Dongdaemun Gate (you can see spectacular night views from this route). Take the subway to Dongdaemun Station (Line 1), Exit 1. Make a U-turn upon leaving the station and walk in the direction of Dongdaemun Gate. Just before you reach the large intersection in front of the gate, turn right into a park and walk uphill. Soon you will be walking next to the fortress wall, and

can walk next to it for several kilometers.

37) Central Inland Region Tour Train

Photo Credit: KORAIL (Korea Railway)
The Central Inland Region Tour Train will begin operation starting April 12, and will give passengers an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the mountain areas of Chungcheongbuk-do, Gangwon-do, and Gyeongsangbuk-do.

The Central Inland Region Tour Train will have two different courses. The O-train will run along a circular track, and the V-train will run through scenic valleys. The O-train will depart Seoul on a 257.2km course through Jecheon in Chungcheongbuk-do, Taebaek in Gangwon-do, Yeongju in Gyeongsangbuk-do, and back through Jecheon before returning to Seoul. The O-train runs four times a day, carrying up to 205 people in four cars including a car for couples and a car for families. The train also has an observation car with a caf in it. The V-train runs on a 27.7km track connecting Buncheon in Gyeongsangbuk-do and Cheolam in Gwangwon-do. It has 3 cars that can accommodate up to 158 people, a caf, and a section with specially designed seats for enjoying scenery.

The train tickets are in the same price range as the Saemaeul Line (top tier trains) and ticket purchase is available online or on-site. The opening ceremony for the train service and the trial runs have already been completed.

Some info on these trains :

" In order to access the V-train, visitors are recommended to first take the O-train, which connects Seoul and Jecheon, and then loops around Jecheon, Yeongju and Taebaek.
Trains depart from Seoul Station at 7:45 a.m. every morning, arriving at the transferring Jecheon Station at 9:55 a.m.
From there, passengers may flag specific stations and routes to reach the valley area and the V-train."

sumber :

The O-train is a shuttle train that loops around the inland running through Gangwon-do (Gangwon Province), Gyeongsangbuk-do (North Gyeongsang Province), and Chungcheongbuk-do (North Chungcheong Province). The V-train, which connects to the O-train at Cheoram, Seungbu and Buncheon stations, travels 27.7 kilometers back and forth between Buncheon and Cheoram stations.

For the O-train and V-train, a two-day tour is most recommended because it would be very tight if someone tries to do it all in one day. It would take one full day to take the O-train and transfer to the V-train and then back to the O-train and then transfer to another train to return to Seoul.

- Hours: Open year round

From Yongin Intercity Bus Terminal, take bus 10-4, 94 or 94-1.
Get off at Baekam Terminal and transfer to bus 35-1.
Get off at Yongcheon (용천) and walk 600m.
From Seoul Nambu Bus Terminal, take an intercity bus to Baekam Terminal.
Take bus 35-1 or a taxi to MBC Dramia.

Detail direction :

From Nambu Bus Terminal Station (Subway Line 3), take Exit 5 to reach Seoul Nambu Terminal. There are fast food and snack restaurants in the area, so you may want to grab a meal before departure.
Purchase a bus ticket at the ticket counter (some buses also accept T-Money cards) and get on the bus at the Bus Stop 18. There is no assigned seating.
The time table is available at the Seoul Nambu Terminal website (in Korean only).
Hours : 6:10 C 21:00 /Interval: about 20 min / Fare: 4,200 won

The bus ride to Baegam Terminal takes about 50 minutes. The bus will stop at Yangji and Jwajeon before arriving at Baegam. A recorded announcement will be played on the bus, but if it is hard to understand, inform the bus driver in advance that you want to get off at Baegam Terminal.
At the terminal, cross the street and take a taxi to Yongin MBC Dramia. It takes about ten minutes by taxi and costs about 8,000 won. After passing rice fields and stables, you will soon see Yongin MBC Dramia.
In front of Hanaro Pharmacy next to the taxi stop, you can also take Bus 10-1. It departs at 09:25, 13:30, and 17:40, but we recommend that you take a taxi to Yongin MBC Dramia instead.

After enjoying a time trip to the Three Kingdoms (Goguryeo, Baekje, Silla), Goryeo Dynasty, and Joseon Dynasty, it is time to return to reality. There are no taxis near Dramia, so you have to get a call taxi. Go to the ticket counter and ask for a call taxi, and they will make the call for you. (Call taxi: 031-334-3000 or 031-334-9100)
After making the call, the taxi will arrive in about ten minutes. The fare is about 9,000 won (1,000 won additional charge for call taxi service + 8,000 won for the trip = 9,000 won

To return to Seoul, you will take a bus at the same bus terminal you arrived at. First, purchase a ticket before getting on the bus. There is no timetable, but there is a bus every 20 to 25 minutes. (No announcement is made upon the buss arrival. When a big bus comes in, show the driver your bus ticket to make sure you are on the right bus.) The bus ride back to Seoul takes about 50 minutes

Food section removed due to too many complaints of halal/non-halal food premises featured before.

Please do your own research as whatever had been listed in the previous threads had caused too much issues and misunderstandings among forumers with regards to halal/non-halal status.

Seasonal Attractions - Autumn

2013 Autumn Foliage

2012 Autumn Foliage

Info from KTO:

The Korea Meteorological Administration has announced that autumn foliage will make its appearance 1~5 days later than it has in previous years. The foliage, changing of colors in leaves, normally peaks 2 weeks after the process begins, and its timing differs by region.

This year, the foliage is expected to arrive in early October in the eastern region, mid-October in the central region, and late October in the western region. The changing of colors in leaves on mountains in each region will also resemble the foliage schedule. For instance, Seoraksan Mountain will have its first foliage starting October 2nd and peak foliage starting October 17th; Jirisan Mountain will have its first foliage starting October 10th and peak foliage starting October 18th; and Naejangsan Mountain will have its first foliage starting October 25th and peak foliage starting November 6th.

* First foliage = 20% of a given areas foliage has changed colors
* Peak foliage = 80% or more of a given areas foliage has changed colors

Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)

1) Saya nak ke Namsan GH, nak naik bus no brape & brape won tambang bus?
Bus 6015 - tambang 10,000 won
Bus 6001 - tambang 14,000 won - bus ni akan singgah Gimpo Airport dulu before proceed to Seoul

2) Saya sampai airport pukul 9.45pm, agak2 sempat tak nak amik last bus pegi Myeongdong?
kalo nak try naik bus tu gak..start dr smpi tu trus gi ke area aerotrain...follow je direction..dah smpi main buliding..ko kene lari kejo eskelator kecik lagi sempit tu nak naik atas ..time ni le kene rebut2 skit dgn org lain..kat situ nak tuju imigresen..byk line nye tapi try to be  dlm line yg pendek...kat situ kejap je ceknye kalo dah dok depan2 + kalo x de rolem..and nak lagi slamat bawak cabin luggage je so x yah le nak tunggu confirm sempat..
chimei slalu dok rempit kat area imigresen tu le..pastu tunggu beg kejap je kuar..pastu lari keluar kat gate 5...mmg seyes sempat la so far wat keje2 running2 ni....kalo bleh jgn singgah mane2 le...tiket bus bleh beli time nak naik bus tu..

3) Macam mana nak pakai KR Pass?

1. beli tix online kat web dia n print voucher
2. naik subway pegi seoul station (korail station) n redeem KR pass.  tunjuk voucher kat kaunter n nnti dorang akan kasik KR pass ni (ni 3 day pass ye)

   3. bile dah dpt KR Pass ni baru la ko pi claim tiket ko nak gi mane..cuntuh ke Busan, check timetable display tuk naik train pukul brape n bitau kat kaunter tu..and nnti dorang akan issue tiket ni..

4.  everytime ko nak dpt tiket ni tunjuk la KR pass tu (KR pass ni kita simpan ye)

5. ape je ko bleh naik guna KR pass ni? Subway tak buleh. cuma train korail je..cuntuh KTX, Saemaul, Mugunghwa. Semua destinasi yg menggunakan train2 ni buleh le guna KR pass.

6. Kalo ko guna KR pass ni tuk travel luar Seoul mmg berbaloi sbb bleh guna korail train ni.  kalo within seoul cam x bebaloi sbb tmpt2 semua reachable by subway.

again KR pass x bleh guna tuk subway ye..

hope that help..

refer kat this blog:

Kat dlm long distance train ( KTX, Saemul, Mugunghwa) boleh makan and ade org jual2 makanan jugak .

4) Berape tambang taxi dari Incheon International Airport ke Seoul?
Kalau suruh guesthouse yg arrangekan, biasenye diorang charge dlm 60,000 won per car .. max 3-4 person
Kalau amik taxi direct from airport, charge from 80,000 won onwards

5) Macam mana nak book air tickets to Jeju ?

T'Way Airlines

Sila refer to Zarina's blog on how to register as member first

Ni pulak how to buy the tickets

*credit goes to tuan empunya blog yer...

6) Register Eastar Jet but receive error ''Enter your name in Roman characters only' ?

Nama tak boleh ada space ...

7) Kalo nak beli sim card koya (prepaid) ada jual kat mana? berapa rm? telco apa?

Korea takde prepaid & dorang nya system different ngan kita.
Recommended beli Calling Card ( mcm ITalk card tu) ..

Kene make sure tepon tu ade at least 3G .... kalo tepon takde 3G, takleh pakai kat sane utk wat call...

8) Senang tak nak carik Wifi?

Wifi connection ade merata2 ...some are free, some are not shops biasenye free .. dlm subway pun ade Wifi.. dlm KTX pun ade ( free lagik ) ... guesthouse biasenye provide free wifi ...

9) Macam mana nak pegi Sokcho from Nami Island

Naik train dari Gapyeong ke nam chuncheon station (sbb station neh  yg dekat chuncheon bus terminal)
Then, naik bus ker sokcho (dekat 3jam gak la)

Bus fare chuncheon- sokcho 12500 won

chuncheon bus terminal walking distence dari nam chuncheon station iaitu 2nd last station....kalau last station line neh kan chuncheon tapi station chuncheon jauh dari chuncheon bus terminal so klu saper 2 yg nak gi chuncheon bus terminal kene turun kat nam chuncheon 2nd station last before chuncheon station

More explanation : --> post#696

10) Kalau nak pos barang, brape rate?

pos guna DHL.... 77k won utk 17.1 lebih kurang 4k la utk sekilo... Lebih kurang 12 hengget sekilo... Fiza rasa cam ok jer... X la mahal sgt.... Cepat pn cepat... Fiza anta khamis ptg, sabtu pagi dg sampai kastam....

11) Ade tak beg wrapping service kat Incheon International Airport?

kalau nk wrap kat Incheon Airport takder.. just ikat and kotak jer disediakan. aritu me ngan kwn amik yg ikat jer.. =) rega utk tali tu, 3k per bag

12) Macammana nak beli tiket ITX?

Boleh refer kat blog chimei nih :
Seat selection
: mase aku beli tu aku tak pilih seat..mesin tu mmg dah choose seat tuk 6 org..mmg sebelah2 la...based on yg mane aku x perlu pilih dah..tapi timing tu mmg mesin tu yg tetapkan...let say ko smpi kul 9..tapi seat yg available tuk 6 org cuma ade kul 11 je so dia akan auto select time tu + seat number...aku rase boleh je pilih seat ....kalo dah penuh mesin tu akan inform kat situ...

ITX ni mmg dr yongsan je ker?klu cheongyani ke gapyeong xde ker?
ITX ni stop kat 6 station bleh naik kat mane2 6 station ni..kat every stop yg dia berenti tu bleh beli tiket

Yongsan (용산)
Cheongnyangni (청량리)
Pyeongnae hopyeong (평내호평)
Gapyeong (가평)
Namchuncheon (남춘천)
Chuncheon (춘천)

13) Macam mana nak beli tiket Jeju Air to Jeju ?

a) Kene register as member dulu baru boleh beli tiket
b) Nama passenger kene taip without spacing : example : MOHAMMAD ALI kene type MOHAMMADALI
c) Bila dah proceed sampai purchase information kena click "Foreign Issued Card" dan bukan " credit card" (credit card tu hanya untuk local sahaja).

14) Better tukar RM to USD, then kat sane baru tukar to Won, or tukar terus dari RM to Won, or just bawak RM then tukar to Won kat sane?

tukar won lagi better sbb kat sana mostly guna won je pun..kalo guna USD beli barang2 kat duty free je le...leceh kalo nak gi tukar kat sana nnti...
Kalau bawak RM dari m'sia, kat sane nanti susah jugak nak tukar sebab ade money changer tak accept RM .. unless kalau bawak USD la... tapi dari buang mase nak cari money changer, baik la tukar kat m'sia siap2 to won

15) Ape nak pakai time winter ?

kalo mmg sungguh2 tak tahan..avoid la outdoor yg banyak ye..cari outfit yg btui2 sesuai ...for winter jacket avoid jenis wool semata2 and the best is jenis yg gelembung2 tu sbb dia kalis air and dlm dia tebal

guna thermal yg wool 100% bukan baju je tapi seluar sama..means sepasang le..chimei slalu pakai baju je..seluar malas nak pakai...ekekek...

chimei penah mention about heatech uniqlo, ... enerating-clothing/

k actually utk chimei tu dah cukup cumanya on top of heatech chimei pakai lagi 2 helai t-shirt pastu baru la winter jacket so total 4 pasang pakai skali harung...akakkaka..

BUT...untuk yg x tahan sejup and 1st time gi time winter di advicekan for full attire....bwk kawan chimei aritu time winter, culture shock ok...hahhahaa..kesian2..but it's good experience for her..

never miss glove + socks wool + paling penting..ade sometimes tu muffler ni function dia as nak tutup mulut n idung sbb kalo telampau sejuk susah nak benafas so cover dgn muffler k..and those yg bertudung mgkn xde masalah dgn telinga sbb dah tutup but yg tak pakai try la guna beanie hat nnti sakit telinga lak

and lastly the most important thing is avoid skin dryness..

mmg serious kalo x guna lotion time winter kulit akan crack means mengelupas and kering never go out without vaselin ye..sapu la satu badan pun x pe..hehe....oh! sunblock juga penting tuk muka ye..kang bebelang lak muka

16) What to do if you lost your passport in Seoul?

1) Kena pi report polis... sila report polis yg dekat itaewon kalo korang perasan dia kat tempat turun subway tu... itu mmg ada counter international.. balik polis lain is takde ok..

2) pergi embassy.. malaysia punya embassy dekat area itaewon tu jugak.... and harus diingat kaunter bukak smpai kul 11 pagi sahajaaa... sebaik ade dak hazim.. diorang sampai kul 11.30 kot.. so pastuuu sebab dak hazim ni semua org kedutaan kenal, so diorang kata dtg balik kul 2...

3) passport dia sementara je bukan passport betol... so esok nya baru leh collect.. sebaik diorang transfer tiket tu 2 hari lepas the exact date yg kitorang kena fly...

4) dah sampai epot, passport tu takkan lakuuuu.. pulak dah... dia takkan laku kalo takde stamp masuk tu... so korang kena pi immigration kat bawah suruh dia cop kan date bila masuk... Last edited by azradiza on 7-5-2013 09:25 AM
