17 Nov 2016 - Trip to 아산 외암민속마을 Oeam Folk Village

This is the entrance of Oeam Folk Village.  I got on a taxi from Ginkgo Avenue 은행나무 at 1.10pm to come here. Starting fare was 2800 won. Reached here at 1.26pm and the taxi fare was 10000 won.  I requested the ticket operator to help me call a taxi for my return trip cos it was very hard to get a taxi even when I walked out to the main road to flag for one. 

My entrance fees was 2000 won.

Eh....I decided to come here after I saw some pictures of this bridge hahahhahhaha 

First time to come across one that is within reach lol

School excursions

I took less than 2 hours to explore the place.
Nothing much to see.
I think all the folk villages are about the same lol 
The taxi ride from the folk village to Onyangoncheon station took about 10mins.
The taxi fare was about 8000 won.
I reached Onyangoncheon station at around 3.15pm. My train ticket shows that the Mugunghwa train from Asan station will depart at 3.59pm. I took the Mugunghwa train from Seoul station to Asan and took the subway from Asan to Onyangoncheon station when I come here.  So I thought I should do the same by taking the subway back to Asan station in order to take the Mugunghwa train to Yongsan station. There was a staff in uniform standing near the escalator to the platform.  I showed her my ticket and she told me I was in the correct direction to the platform back to Yongsan station. 
The screen also show that this was the platform for train to Yongsan station.  Actually, I was confused becos even though I was supposed to take train from Asan station to Yongsan station, I had a feeling that I need not change to another train when I reach Asan station.  Time passed by.  I got a bit worried as I waited cos there was no train at all.
At last, a train arrived at 3.50pm!! When I got on the train, I looked for my seat according to my ticket. To my surprise, there was somebody sitting at my designated seat. Oh dear, should I approach the person?? I do not want to stand all the way to Yongsan station when I have already paid for the ticket! Suddenly, I remembered that I got on the train at Onyangoncheon Station and not Asan station. True enough, the person sitting on my seat got off the train at Asan station. I decided that I should be on the right train to Yongsan station and did not get off the train. It was 4pm when the train reached Asan station.  It was definitely an experience although I am still not sure why I can take the Mugunghwa train from Onyang Oncheon Station lol
