Gangwon Day Trip: Sea Train (바다열차)

[Travel in April 2013]

I remembered watching this Sea Train ride from a taiwanese travel show on tv and I was quite excited to share this with my travel companions of the upcoming trip. And apparently, Carol knew about it too, maybe we watched the same show or so. So, we find that this Sea Train was pretty interesting as the seated are all facing 1 side where you get to see the pretty scenery. So, yeah, we managed to go during our #3doryinkr 🙂 Wow, its been 2years coming 3 years ago! 🙂 Its been a wonderful 2013.

Because in order to catch the train at Samcheok Station at 12noon, we had to catch the 7:10am bus! 🙂

  • Hi, I am planning to visit this June, is the sea train station near to Samcheok bus terminal when you arrived? And is Gangneung Bus Terminal near to Jeongdongjin sea train station? Do you purchase all the transport tickets on the spot there or you reserve on-line? Tks if you could give me some advice.

    • Hi Lindy!

      The Bus Terminal is very near to the Sea Train Station 🙂 And, we bought our tickets all on the spot 🙂 But we did reach earlier in case the ticket was sold out 🙂

      We actually took a cab over to Gangneung Bus Terminal from the restaurant becaue we feel thats the easier way out 🙂
