SURVIVAL TIP: All about taking the Korean Trains

To travel from city to city in Korea, taking a train is probably the most safest and the best way as a foreigner.

There are several types of trains in Korea.

1. Regular Trains

Korail_ktx_sancheon_17

a) KTX : It’s the fastest train in Korea. By taking this train, it takes less than 3 hours from Seoul to Busan. Although the train fee is expensive, you can save time with high quality seats. If you go to Busan from Seoul by Mugunghwa train or a car, it takes more than 5 hours.

A lovely day trip to Petite France and Nami Island (Namiseom) in Korea.

Although Petite France Village and Nami Island are known as two of the most popular travel destinations in Korea, it’s not easy to get around the places when you actually want to visit, especially for foreigners without a vehicle to move freely.

One of the best and the most convenient ways to reach these places is to take a package trip available out there, which offers a hassle free tour. We’ll show you around how we got to visit and enjoy the attractions! We guarantee you this will be the most thorough review of the day trip adventure. 

(Visited & written by Yoonhee C.)

First, there are two options for departure: Seoul Train Station (Line 1) or Hongik University Station (Line 2).


Top 7 Jeonju Hanok Village’s Street Food (that you shouldn’t miss)

Jeonju, located in Jeollabukdo province, is one of best cities to visit because of the well preserved Hanok Village.

Jeonju Hanok Village is the biggest Hanok village in Korea. There are over 800 traditional Korean Hanok houses. While the rest of city has been industrialized, Jeonju Hanok Village  retains its historical charms and traditions.

Our 4th Chuseok in Korea, Part 1 – Seoul

Growing up, Thanksgiving was always my favorite holiday. There is no pressure about gifts, the family is way less stressed, and it is all about gratitude, family, and good food. My kind of holiday. The day really embodies Fall, with it’s smells and sweaters, colors, and football (or nap time for me).

In Korea, Chuseok is compared to Thanksgiving because it is also a harvest festival (minus the genocide and kum ba yah stories of sharing some turkey), but it is as big as Christmas is in the States. Being that it’s one of the two biggest holidays in Korea, we usually get 4 or 5 days off! Hooray!

We also got some pretty great Chuseok gifts this year, and if you’re interested in seeing what kind of quirky things we got check out the video!

A Korean Elementary School Tour

I’m currently in my third year teaching in the EPIK program. Due to cutbacks, I was reallocated from a girl’s middle school to an elementary school in a nearby district. My current school, Guduk Elementary (구덕초등학교), is a moderate to smaller sized school.

The English Department is one Korean teacher…and me! There’s your org chart.

I really enjoy working with these little ones. A very different experience than teaching middle schoolers who just want K-Pop. That’s it. K-Pop.

I thought I would take some time to shoot a video of the innards of the school to share with you all. The narrative in the video will explain the rest. Enjoy!


Korean Public School Office Tour

I found this old video from my phone and wanted to share it with you guys! It’s a tour of my old office from the first year at my school, during my school’s festival. I’m in a different, better office now which I will do a tour of in the future. But if you’re curious what your office may look like as a public school teacher in Korea, here’s a quick glimpse!

Making the Most of Korean Festivals in 2012

 
 
The Eobang or Fishers' Festival on Gwangan Beach, Busan
 
 

Bokbunja & Black Raspberry Festival!

I took an Adventure Korea tour to see the Black Raspberry Festival in Geochang. Activities included picking berries & drinking the berry wine, touring the festival grounds (including live eel catching), a dance party, and shellfish collecting.

Basically, the 45 foreigners provided live  entertainment for the small town of Geochang for the entire weekend. We were followed everywhere by Koreans and their cameras. An amusing weekend, indeed.


After a 3-hour bus ride from Seoul, we landed in Geochang. We began the day by enjoying some traditional Korean games and sampling the local black raspberries, one of Geochang's best-known exports.

Guarding the DMZ

Destination: a KTX trip – tea fields in Boseong and rail-biking in Gokseong (Jeollanam-do)

There are quite a few ‘KTX Tours’ available – typically one- or two-day trip offering to whisk you away to sights around the country using Korea’s fast train service. While the KTX train didn’t take us all the way to our first destination, the chartered bus took us the rest of the way.


South Korea Adventure #13- Goseong 고성 - FAIL!

Happy New Year everyone! Hope 2011 brings many great things!

Cheers,

South Korea Adventure #13- Goseong 고성

I have done a lot of motorcycle trips in Korea and have done almost every possibe day trip from Busan. So when I when I was headed to Goseong I was not that excited. I knew there was dinosur museums there, but beyond that there didn't seem like much. Instead I was absolutely blown away. The ride was amazing. Maybe the best ride I have done so far. There were great winding roads along the ocean. The views were amazing. We spent most of the day in Sangjogam County Park. The dinosaur museum is there. It is also some of the most beautiful scenery I have experienced in Korea. It was a great day!
