  • I think the best thing to do is to hire a bike, you put very close to station buses and not much swing with prices, US 3 hours 5000 won. The truth is that the road is very simple and you can go down the sidewalk, does not have any danger. There are sites which have to leave out as Daereungwon Ancient tombs and Donggung Palace and Wolji Pond.
