Itinerary for the day was a day trip to 영동 포도축제 Yeongdong Grape Festival.
I reached Seoul Station at 6.50am *Sleepy
|No seat number on my ticket since mine was a standing ticket.|
"부산행" circled in red reflects the final station for this train.
In this case, Busan was the final station.
|Therefore, I had to look for Busan instead of Yeongdong.|
|Standing area on the train.|
I am fine with standing but time seemed to be crawling when I am standing ㅎㅎㅎ
|Finally, I reached Yeongdong Station after more than 2 hours of standing!|
Tentages were set up in front of the train station. I approached one of the staff for the location of shuttle bus to the grape farm or rather Grapes Picking Experience Site. Shuttle bus is available only during the festival.
|Shuttle bus timetable during this festival, 28 Aug till 31 Aug 2014.|
1) 축제장 - Festive Ground
2) 영동역 - Yeongdong Train Station
3) 포도따기체험장 - Grapes Experience Picking Site
4) 와인코리아 - Wine Korea
5) 영동역 - Yeongdong Train Station
6) 축제장 - Festive Ground
|Here comes the shuttle bus at 10.05am.|
The bus fare was 200 won.
You pay whenever you got onto the shuttle bus.
It is not a one time payment for visiting the places on the shuttle bus route.
|Reached the Grapes Picking Experience Site at 10.12am.|
|I followed the locals...|
|So cute ^^|
|Everyone was busy deciding how many empty boxes to get, except me ㅎㅎㅎ|
I didn't want to carry a heavy box back to Seoul.
Most importantly, I won't be able to finish all the grapes by myself!
|I think it says one box can contain about 2kg of grapes, which is about 5-6 bunches of grapes at 5000 won.|
Errmmm...please feel free to correct me if I made any mistakes!
