Petite France– filming site of drama You Who Came from the Star, Running Man ep 40(the one with Nickhun and Taecyeon)/French cultural village/very vintage architecture/something like a theme park just that there’s not rides/30 mins away from the dock(Namiseom dock) that goes to Nami Island/Recommend to go Nami Island and Petite France on the same day. Just go to Gapyeong Station, walk out (there’s only one exit) and you see an information booth. The staffs there can speak really good english, ask them for help and they will give you a brochure that states the various timing for the tour bus that tours around the region(bring you to Namiseom dock and Petite Island). It is only 5000krw and you can hop on again after getting down.
Gangchon Rail Park
Day 3: Gangchon Rail Park, and some shoppingSome of the palaces are closed on Mondays, so we did a bit of a day trip outside Seoul today. Gangchon Rail Park is about 2hours outside Seoul by the Seoul Metro. Looooong metro ride but really worth it, in my opinion!You cycle on a cart on an old train track between 2 unused railway stations, and admire the gorgeous scenery along the way. The rail park is one of a few in the country but is famous because the uber popular reality South Korean TV show Running Man filmed there. The distance between the two stations is quite long, so to make things easier, the 2nd half of the journey is by a slow train. The carts are two-seaters or four-seaters.It wasn't that strenuous a ride as parts of the railway track was slightly inclined downhill, and the rest of the track was pretty flat. We passed through some tunnels which were decorated and had music playing as you cycle through them. Super fun experience!!The rail park is called Gangchon Rail Park, but to get here, you get off at Gimyujeon Station, not Gangchon Station. The park is right outside the train station.
