Traveling out of Seoul to take V-train- We took a 5 hours train ride(0-train)out from Seoul that loops around the inland running through Gangwon-do, Gyeongsangbuk-do and Chungcheongbuk-do (10 hours to and fro Seoul) just to see the interior of the Korean Peninsula. It will then stop at Buncheon Station and then we had to alight and get to the V-train. (Seoul > Buncheon Station >V-train(Buncheon>Yangwon>Seungbu>Cheoram>Bucheon)>Bucheon Station>Seoul). It is really damn pretty with valleys covered with snow and river frozen. I think it will be even prettier if it’s autumn! Really amazed by these breathtaking views of natural rocks and cliffs along the steep valleys and mountains. Remember to bring passport along and book in advance because there is limited seats on the train.

While you may get a false glimpse of what life is like north of the border it’s something to say you’ve stepped over into this mysterious nation. Of course, expect changes from the advertised route and tight regulations within the country. There’s a lot of fine print on their official website and even the dates of the event are subject to change last minute as per the demands of the Eternal General Secretary of the Party, Kim Jong-Il.
