We headed to Incheon today! I have never explored this part of the city before. It took us nearly an hour to reach there by metro and we are really excited. Upon reaching Incheon, we booked ourselves with their local city tour which brought us to many of their scenic places. Places we stopped at are: G Tower, Solchan Park (where the celaka bus driver didn't stop and we had to wait another 30 mins), Central Park, Wolmi Traditional Park, Wolmi Culture Street and Incheon Station (China Town).
Solchan Park was absolutely beautiful even in the afternoon. The wind was brezzy and the place is absolutely stunning. I can imagine people going there for picnics, taking the kids for a run, playing their bikes and having fun!
Central Park is also a great place for outdoor activities. As the city tour guide pointed out, Incheon is an eco friendly city with lots of green facilities. I'm beginning to fall in love with this city. It is sooo laid back.
After lunch, I had to hunt down the Dal comm coffee joint which DOTS (Descendants of the sun) had most of their coffee shots. Needless to say, I was over the moon!
Chinatown was quaint in its own way. But we had arrived in the evening therefore most shops are closing (except the Chinese restaurants). It's a steep walk up the hill but it felt quite at home since it's Chinatown.
After that we headed back to Seoul and went to Hangang Park to see the Banpo Bridge. It was a long long walk to the park and even at that hour (9pm) there were many many people walking, running, jogging and cycling. And it felt sooo safe being there.
Then it was time to head back to the hostel. It was another long long walk to the nearest metro but once we saw the exit we were estatic! Never been so happy to see the Metro.
Our legs definitely paid the price. They were sore and tired. But it was worth it. We saw many things that we wouldn't be able to see otherwise.
