Oh yeah! lets skip the hassle of first day. On the second day, we went to Yangpyeong. How did we know about Yangpyeong?
OK seriously, no kidding... before we planned our trip, roughly 4month before we go to Korea, the first thing that we did was to study the map of Korea. How many states? Districts? how to get there? places of attractions, where can we get Halal food and I dont do it alone. We divides our work. by WE, I mean my travel partners and I. We split our tasks and exchange infos. That's how our dream trip starts. hahah
Then, Once you arrive at the subway area in Korea, find tourist centre and takes as many brochures of different districts as you can. That way, you can plan and plan and plan your trips again. By this, what I am trying to say is, our itinerary was not fix. We planned, but it changes depending on the weather, distance and our strength. hahaha in another way, we are creating Plan A, B C and maybe D.
So Yangpyeong is a little bit far from Seoul. There are lots of attractions in Yangpyeong. Basically outdoors activities. If you are heading to Yangpyeong, you can notice in the train that many are wearing outdoor gears. they are either hiking, cycling or trekking. As for us the beautiful tourists... hehee we wanted to try the RAILBIKE. just like the one that Runningman did. But the exact place of the one RM went was too far. so we choose Yangpyeong.
This is the address: 277, Yongmun-ro, Yongmun-myeon.
Directions: Get down at Yongmun Station. Some advices you to get on the bus to go to the railbike. But as we walk and try to get the bus, we already reached the railbike park. hahah so, in another words, you can just walk. its not that far..
as we walk, we found beautiful murals along the way... ^^
|Having a fling with King Sejong..hihihi I love the murals! terasa ala2 bigung..keh3|
|Nice scnery and pitstop.|
From here, I guess there was around 800m left before we arrived? hahhha
|We were finally here. The rail trek.|
Finally, we were there. The rail trek runs for 6.4km. you have to cycle on your own. xde gerak2 sniri okey. and this thingy managed to get me sweaty..hahahha and dont forget cramps!! but i'm excited!! and it is exciting!!
The wind was cold enough. so I had to put a mafla around my mouth. hahah As you can see, you cant cut out other people from the lane. you either can continue to cycle slowly or if the person at the back cycle veryyyyy fast, then you have to continue cycle faster than they were. My advice, keep the momentum!
The one way trip was around 3.2 km. then we made a pitstop. they turn the bike and we strike a pose! hahaha
there's also a coffee shop at the end of the rail track, so we just join them and ate our own lunch. can you see the korean at the back? Yes we are in korea..hahaha the Korean and the tent should be the tagmark.
After that, the journey continues for another 3.2km haha this time we feel like T.T hahahha
These are some of the sceneries. couldnt upload everything right? hahah
