Seoul Day 2
One way ticket - 6,500w
Return ticket - 13,000w
Nami Visa (entrance fee) - 8,000w
Back to Seoul
We decided not to wait for 4pm shuttle bus so here is the direction for those who wish to go back to Seoul by train. Take the ferry back to Namiwharf & walk out the parking area (past the bungee jumping point) until you find a bus stop on the right hand side. Wait untill bus 33 arrive to take you to Gapyeong station. T-money accepted, 900w. Or you can take a taxi to Gapyeong station. Take your train to Sangbong station, use t-money all the way through Seoul subway. When you reach Sangbong station, you have to change to Jungang line that shows direction to Yongsan, but stop at Hoegi or Wangsimni, follow the direction to Seoul subway and you are on your own. I went to Myeongdong and you guess how much was the total cost? (Gapyeong - Myeongdong) It was 1,100w! I swear our balance showed 13,200w at Gapyeong & at Myeongdong when we scan it, it showed 12,100w! Wow!! But of course if you have a full day for leisure activity at Nami and not planning to go to other places afterwards, just take the Nami shuttle bus from Tapgol Park, it will save you a lot of trouble getting there and back. The bus from Namiwharf departs at 4pm (only one bus per day departs from Tapgol Park)
After sending my friends safely back to Chungmuro station, we three took a taxi to Itaewon & went to Salam, right next to Seoul Central Mosque. Turned out way below our expectation and tooooooo expensive (41,000w) because the portion was too small. That was the first & the last time we were at Itaewon. The taxi ride pocketed 12,000w to take us there and back to SYH. If you want to go to Itaewon by subway, take line 6, Itaewon station - exit 3. Reminder: It's a long walk & you have to walk uphill some more.
