U can also jog or cycle around the park. It is quite beautiful with mountain and lake scenery. The park is also a popular date course for couples at nighttime as there are many quiet cafes located near the reservoir.

Bundang Jeongja-dong Café Street



How to go there: Alight Jeongja Station (Seoul Subway Bundang Line), Exit 5. From the subway exit, turn around and cross the road. Turn left onto Neuti-ro Street (느티로), and go straight for 60m. Turn right before the Paragon Apartment Building 101, and go straight for 160m. Cross the road at Paragon Apartment Building 104 to arrive at Budang Jeongja-dong Café Street.
It is a popular place lined with a lot nice cafes for people. It is also a popular spot for dating places. It is also called Cheongja-dong due to the chic atmosphere resembles Cheongdam-dong in Seoul.
we have lunch at this awesome restaurant. It was consider the best meal I ever had in Korea.
My lunch. I ordered a gyzoa set for 9000won. The fried rice was really tasty cooked with big chuck of meals yet not oily. The fried chicken was crispy and juicy. The gyoza is well cooked and delicious even without any sauce. The soup is simple but yet nice. I really enjoy this lunch. I think to have such delicious meal in Singapore would cost more than 20 SGD. Strongly recommend to dine in here if u are coming to this cafe street.

Namhansanseong Provincial Park

How to go there: Alight at Sanseong Station and come out from Exit No. 2. Take City Bus No. 9, and get off at Namhansanseong bus stop.
It is popular spot for mountain-climbing. It is beautiful through out the year. It is cover with green trees during the summer when we went there. I think it would be more beautiful during autumn when all the leaves start to turn red!!! The journey to the top took us around 30 minutes.

View at the top!! Look a bit like great wall of china!!

Overall, it is really worth visiting for the scenery. Just hike and enjoy the scenery along the way. Remember to wear hiking shoe and not like me going everywhere in slipper ... Also bring drinking water and sunblock if u are intending to hike for long period of time.
