17 Oct 2013 - Getting to 안산 Ansan

I wanted to hike up to Ansan via Seodaemun-gu District Office, and asked Boa if there is any bus that goes direct to Seodaemun-gu District Office from the guesthouse. She checked for me and told me bus no. 110A should reach there. However, she was not very sure where to take the bus. I went to the bus stop but did not see bus no.110A. Decided to take subway to Hongje Station, exit 3 instead. From  exit 3, I will take a bus to Seodaemun-gu District Office

From exit 3, walk straight for about 3 mins and you will see this bus stop outside Caffe Bene.
Yup. This bus stop is called, "홍제역" Hongje Station.
I will alight at the 5th stop, 서대문구청 Seodaemun-gu District Office.
There are only two buses at this bus stop. Bus no. 7738 and 7713.
I think you can take bus no. 7738 as well but I am not too sure.
7713 arrived at 11.04am.
There was vocal announcement of the bus stop names in both Hangul and English ^^
I reached the bus stop, "서대문구청" Seodaemun-gu District Office at 11.11am.

I checked the bus directory at this bus stop. There is bus no.110B and I saw "동교동삼거리 Donggyodong Samgeori"(bus stop outside Boa guest house) on the bus route. I knew Boa guesthouse is in Seodaemun-gu but I did not see this bus at the bus stop just now. Maybe I went to the wrong bus stop ㅠㅠ
Seodaemun-gu District Office is across the road.
Ansan is behind the building.
I crossed the road, turned right, walked straight and turned left as shown by the arrows
You will see this signage at the corner of the road..
Turn left and walk straight as directed.
Walk straight down and turn right at the T junction.
Yup. This is the T junction.
Walk as directed.
Till now, I still wonder if I can take the stairs instead of the slope.
Anyway, I took the slope.
Not that steep.
It is just one road to take.

Oops!  It got steeper...much much steeper...
When I say its steep, its really steep ㅋㅋㅋ
Saw this food truck vendor at the end of the slope.
Yup. I have reached Ansan.
Errmmm....the bottom of Ansan....
