  • A one hour trip to Everland

    Honestly speaking, getting here is a bit of pain as Yongin is some distance away from Seoul. But it's not all that difficult. All you need to do is to proceed to Dong Seoul Bus Terminal (Gangbyeon Station (Seoul Subway Line No.2), Exit 4 ), purchase a bus ticket from the many counters there and take an express bus bound for Everland (1 hour ride)....
