Two more days to go before I flew back to Singapore and I felt I was in a state of severe depression. I will be back in Korea soon and I made a little wish for my next trip.
The itinerary for the day was 허브 아일랜드 Herb Island at Pocheon. I had a good breakfast before setting off. Hey, the croissants were nice!
|I took the subway to Changdong station, where I transferred to another subway for Uijeongbu Station 의정부역.|
Everyone will realised I am a tourist whenever I flashed out my camera. That is fine with me. At times when I need help, I do hope the local people will know that I'm non Korean ㅋㅋㅋ
|The online information stated to take exit 1 from Uijeongbu station and walk towards the main road in front of the station. I looked to my right. The exit on the far right was exit 6.|
|So I looked at my far left. That was exit 4 and 5. Where's exit 1???? I walked around searching for exit 1.|
|Couldn't find exit 1. I looked down from the area near exit 4,5 and 6. Yes, there was a main road in front of the subway station and all three exits will lead more or less to the same place. Ok heck, just go down and see how.|
|I took exit 5 and walked towards the main road.|
|Facing the main road, I saw many taxis on my left waiting along the road. I turned left and walked straight with my direction against the flow of traffic.|
|Walked straight though I wasn't too sure if I was on the right track.|
Some railway construction works going on. What''s Uline? I read up kojects and got to know that the Uijeongbu LRT, branded as U Line, is light rail line in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea to the north of Seoul. It is the second line in Seoul after the Sin Bundang Line and the third in South Korea to be fully automated without drivers. The first official service will begin from the first morning trains on Sunday, July 1, but citizens will be able to try out the service free of charge from June 26 to June 30 .
Woww, free trial of train service. That's so cool!
|I crossed the road.|
|Oh that's bus no.138! Where was it coming from? Though I missed it but I think I'm on the right track.|
|Reached the second bus stop. It took me about 7mins to reach here from the subway station. There was bus no. 138, 138-5 and 138-6 at this bus stop. I didn't have time to go through the bus route becos bus no.138 soon arrived.|
|Managed to quickly snap a picture of the bus route before I board the bus. Somehow, I couldn't locate the bus stop that I wanted to alight. I wanted to alight at 한마음약국 Hanmaeun Pharmacy bus stop which was just one stop after 포천시청 Pocheon City Hall as directed by chaemii.blogspot.sg. Yup, this is one of my favourite blog ^^|
I asked the bus driver if this bus goes to Pocheon. He didn't sound okay at all. In fact, he grumbled and told me to take my seat first. I took the seat nearest to him. The time was 9.14am when I board the bus. I didn't ask the bus driver any more question becos I knew it would take about an hour to reach Pocheon. Was I worried that this was not the right bus for me?? Ya, a little worried and I prayed hard!
|Poor piggies :(|
Ermm...I don't know what this means but I snapped a picture of it. I thanked the bus driver and got off the bus.
|Waiting at the bus stop for bus no. 57. |
Pocheon is a very simple and quiet town.
|Trying to figure out what was written on this signage...|
|한마음약국 Hanmaeun Pharmacy. You wouldn't be able to see this from the bus.|
|Oh! There's a LED screen.|
Was it saying that bus no. 73 is arriving?
I didn't see any bus no. 73 on the rundown signage. Maybe that's not updated.
