Exciting Train Tours from Seoul! With KTX and the Gold Train!
Some say the best way to travel is by Train. In some countries that may not be true, it may be inconvenient or not even possible! But when it comes to taking the train in Korea it will be your best option for long-distance travels. The Trains are clean, comfortable and punctual, and just about every station has signs in both Korean and English!
Let’s look at our favorite Train Tours!
KTX Train to Boseong Green Tea Field and Damyang Bamboo Forest
See the Biggest Green Tea Field in Korea: About 40% of Korean Tea is from this area! They have been producing quality Green tea here for a very long time! (Since 1939). The unique part of this tour is that it’s actually targeted towards Korean people, so you will travel together with a Korean staff, who are available to help you with anything you might need. However, they do not speak English (their English skills are limited) but don’t let that stop you from experiencing a real Korean tour where you can see what’s popular among Koreans!
The best part is probably the amazing scenery and photos you will be taking! BOOK HERE
