Direction :
Because it is located close to the presidental palace, security is high and you must carry your passport with you. You can only enter from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and must finish your hike before 5 p.m.

However, if you want to view the fortress wall at night or don't want to worry about carrying a passport, you can access the wall from Dongdaemun Gate (you can see spectacular night views from this route). Take the subway to Dongdaemun Station (Line 1), Exit 1. Make a U-turn upon leaving the station and walk in the direction of Dongdaemun Gate. Just before you reach the large intersection in front of the gate, turn right into a park and walk uphill. Soon you will be walking next to the fortress wall, and

- Hours: Open year round
- Summer season(March - October)10:00 – 18:00(admission until 17:00)
- Winter season (November - February)10:00 – 17:00(admission until 16:00)

Get off at Baekam Terminal and transfer to bus 35-1.
Get off at Yongcheon (&#50857;&#52380;) and walk 600m.
From Seoul Nambu Bus Terminal, take an intercity bus to Baekam Terminal.
Take bus 35-1 or a taxi to MBC Dramia.

Detail direction :

From Nambu Bus Terminal Station (Subway Line 3), take Exit 5 to reach Seoul Nambu Terminal. There are fast food and snack restaurants in the area, so you may want to grab a meal before departure.
Purchase a bus ticket at the ticket counter (some buses also accept T-Money cards) and get on the bus at the Bus Stop 18. There is no assigned seating.
The time table is available at the Seoul Nambu Terminal website (in Korean only).
Hours : 6:10 – 21:00 /Interval: about 20 min / Fare: 4,200 won

The bus ride to Baegam Terminal takes about 50 minutes. The bus will stop at Yangji and Jwajeon before arriving at Baegam. A recorded announcement will be played on the bus, but if it is hard to understand, inform the bus driver in advance that you want to get off at Baegam Terminal.
At the terminal, cross the street and take a taxi to Yongin MBC Dramia. It takes about ten minutes by taxi and costs about 8,000 won. After passing rice fields and stables, you will soon see Yongin MBC Dramia.
※ In front of Hanaro Pharmacy next to the taxi stop, you can also take Bus 10-1. It departs at 09:25, 13:30, and 17:40, but we recommend that you take a taxi to Yongin MBC Dramia instead.

After enjoying a time trip to the Three Kingdoms (Goguryeo, Baekje, Silla), Goryeo Dynasty, and Joseon Dynasty, it is time to return to reality. There are no taxis near Dramia, so you have to get a call taxi. Go to the ticket counter and ask for a call taxi, and they will make the call for you. (Call taxi: 031-334-3000 or 031-334-9100)
After making the call, the taxi will arrive in about ten minutes. The fare is about 9,000 won (1,000 won additional charge for call taxi service + 8,000 won for the trip = 9,000 won

To return to Seoul, you will take a bus at the same bus terminal you arrived at. First, purchase a ticket before getting on the bus. There is no timetable, but there is a bus every 20 to 25 minutes. (No announcement is made upon the bus’s arrival. When a big bus comes in, show the driver your bus ticket to make sure you are on the right bus.) The bus ride back to Seoul takes about 50 minutes

kalau dari seoul amik ler bas pegi incheon airport... tempat full house tu mmg dekat dgn incheon airport... rasanya takde direct bas ke jeti tu dari seoul (seoul-incheon airport 1jam, incheon airport-jeti 15min)

nak senang naik jer teksi dari incheon airport tu ke Jeti Sammok (Sammok Sonchakjang).. tak ingat lak berapa hg tambang 4k kot

kalau naik bas kena tukar 2 bas.. aventure skit... hehe.. naik bas no. 223 turun kat Unseo Station (masa naik bas ni mesti bgtau driver ko nak pegi jeti sammok.. otomatik dia akan turunkan ko kat tempat sepatutnya).. kat Unseo Station ni naik bas no. 710 dan turun kat jeti tu... jgn lupa bgtau driver sbb bas ni lalu tepi pantai... nanti taktau yg mana satu lak sbb dekat jer...
