Although I live in Seoul now, Busan definitely holds a place dear to my heart with it’s vibrant beaches and laid back attitude. A lot of people compare Seoul and Busan to New York and California in the United States. I wouldn’t say it was the same but there are definitely some similarities! Ultimately, I decided that Seoul was the best choice for me because it was more convenient to get around and let’s face it… most major events and festivals are in or around the Seoul area.
There are a few signs here and there warning tourists to stick to the path so that you do not disturb people living there. Tourists are very discouraged from walking around the actual neighborhood. If you do venture there, you will notice a lot of very run down buildings and trash build up. Once again… kind of sad.
♥Take the subway to Toseong Station (Line 1).
♥Come out of exit 6 and turn right at the intersection.
♥Walk straight until you reach the bus stop. It’s located across from a hospital.
♥Take the 2 or 2-2 bus to the village. Almost everyone will get off at this stop so you can’t miss it!
You can walk up the hill for about twenty minutes but it is very steep. You can also take a taxi up the hill if you don’t want to ride the bus.
