    ramai cakap x menarik.. ye ke?

  4. Zarina Jani says:

    Hi Kay,
    weather wise it is cold and view wise not really nice cause snow pun takde and gloomy je..if you still need to go on that date, make sure it is a sunny day..

    yang pasti, masa autumn mmg cantik sangat!!

    Hi Zarina,

    Nak tanya, boleh bli ticket direct from seoul station to gapyeong station ye? walaupun nanti kena tukar dari subway kpd train?

  6. Zarina Jani says:

    Hi Nisa,

    From Seoul to Gapyeong tak pasti kalau ada 1 tiket je.
    Tapi dari
    Seoul Station*—> Sangbong Station# – guna T-Money just transfer subway.

    Sangbong Station# —->Gapyeong Station# – kena beli tket lain sebab dah guna train biasa.

    —->Gapyeong Station#.

    Hi Zarina,
    I'm quite confused abt travelling to Nami Island, hope you can help me with it. Do we have to take subway and transfer to train to get there or can get there just by subway? =)
    And can i check with you, do you think we get buy those banchan dishes from namdaemun market and bring it back to our country, will it spoilt on e way back?

    Hi Kay,

    There are a few options to go to Nami Island,
    either by shuttle bus at Tapgol Park


    by subway from Seoul station to Gapyeong station. After that you have to take a taxi to the Nami Island.

    It's really easy to get to Nami Island nowadays…only too many transfers… but the good side is tak payah nak beli2 tiket lagik.. can use T-money… 'tap' skali mase kat your first station… 'tap' lagik skali mase nak kluar kat Gapyeong station…
    mase pegi aritu, this was my route:

    Myeongdong –> Dongdaemun History & Culture Park –> Wangsimni –> Sangbong –> Gapyeong … took us about 2 hours to reach Gapyeong… had to wait for almost 20 minutes dekat Sangbong for the Gyeongchun Line punye train …

    hi kak zarina, if i used this route to nami, i'll be paying 3600 (return subway+train), 8000 (return ferry), admission pulak mcm mane?

  11. Zarina Jani says:

    Hi Aina,
    8,000 won ferry ride tu dah termasuk admission into the island.

    tetiba konpius pulakkk…."Rapid Train to Sangbong at Gate 6-2"…station ni ada dlm subway map x? Line brape ni yea?

  13. Zarina Jani says:

    Hi Anonymous,
    Sangbong train station ni ada dua – satu untuk subway, satu untuk rapid train. Dalam metro map akan nampak satu station je, tapi dia ada a few levels dalam same building yg separate subway and train.

    ooo….tp cmne nk ke Sangbong dari Cheongyannni?sy tgk dlm map….tp still confused…mcm x bertembung je 2 line ni…

  15. Zarina Jani says:

    Hi Anonymous,
    actually sangbong dan cheongyanni ada train biasa (mcm KTM) dan subway (mcm LRT)

    once, dah naik train biasa tak semestinya kena pegi sangbong. Sampai cheongyanni boleh keluar dari station train biasa dan ambil subway ke Seoul.

    Actually susah nak explain bile tengok map..once you dah ada kat sana baru akan lebih clear ^^

  16. ana says:

    kalo dari myeongdong nak ke sangbong kena guna subway or train biasa?

  17. ana says:

    lupa plak, boleh tunjuk kan cara-cara macam mana nak pergi Everland tak?

  18. Zarina Jani says:

    Salam Ana,

    Myeongdong to Sangbong naik subway.

    Ke everland, kena pergi Gangnam station, Line 2 (color hijau), keluar exit 10 and then naik bus no 5002 ke Everland

    Hi Zarina, Hope can meet u up in Seoul this Nov. Noor stay nearby Hyewa U nyer backpackers. Laa nie br dpt post kat blog awak nie :p, Now can see at Seoul Metro Traffic Center map cam ader gapyeong station if wanna go Nami via subway or train. Is it the same or different ekk? And the fare is abt 1800/way to Gapyeong.But if from Hyewa hv to transfer at 3 station dongdaemun,Hoegi & Mangu..

  20. Zarina Jani says:

    Salam Noor,

    If from Hyewa Station to Gapyeong
    You have to transit at dongdaemun , Hoegi station until Sangbong with subway.

    After sangbong, go to train line in the same building to Gapyeong.

    From Hyewa to Gapyeong takes about 1 hour 40 minutes, 19 station, 61.1km and 1,800 won with T-Money

    Hi Zarina,

    Been in and out of Korea with wife and 2 kids for the 6th time but somehow, we keep ditching Nami Island from our to do list.

    Correct me if I am wrong:

    From Myeong Dong, I need to take the Subway to Cheongyanni Station.

    Transfer Cheongyanni Subway to Sangbong Train

    Sangbong Station to Gapyeong Station.

    Exit and take a cab to Nami Island.
    Upon reaching I have to pay entrance fee of 8,000 KRW for ferry and entrance fee.

    Is this correct?

  22. ana says:

    dari Myeongdong station x blh trus ke Sangbong Station ke?

  23. ana says:

    dekat Gapyeong Station nie terus amik ferry pergi ke nami island ke?

  24. Zarina Jani says:

    Hi, Zarina. Nice and helpful blog u have here. Good job!
    I am a lil' confused on the transfer thingy. Do we have to tap on some kind of machine every time we transfer to another line? And when we say 'transfer', does that mean we switch from e.g. Line 7 coaches to Line 2 coaches?
    Another thing is I saw JejuAir website. It seems like we can now book tickets in English. What do you think? Is it ok and secure?

  31. Zarina Jani says:

    Shin Yee,

    No need to tap many times like in Malaysia.

    Once you tap from the first subway..then only tap again at your last destination station.

    I'm not gonna vouch for the security of one website. As I know, glitches do happen but unlikely. Human's invention is not perfect. ^^

    Hi ms zarina, good job on this blog.=)

    We'll be going to korea this march 2013. And planning to go to nami, the subway/train route will be a bit hard for my mom since she can't walk too far and the stairs and transfers.

    How long will it take from the shuttle bus terminal to the wharf? Can the shuttle bus accomodate my mom's wheelchair? We'll be staying at myeongdong. Also planning to ride a taxi to the pagoda/tapgol park for the shuttle bus. It leaves 9:30am, will it be ok if we book a day before, since we plan to go on our 2nd day ?
