菩提彼岸Jeongdongjin Railway Station, the seaside sightseeing train, the whole journey takes 40 minutes. It is currently the closest train to the seaside in the world; a little bit closer is the bicycle track, and the sea view and experience are first-class. The settings of each car are different. The seats in the first and second cars are facing the sea, and there are small boxes; the third car has a bar, and the family car. The Korean drama "Hourglass" was filmed here, and now there are "props" such as pine trees and sculptures on site.

kiviboiOn the day we arrived at Wuzhuxuan, we waived the 3000 won per person for the entrance fee because it was in time for the public open day. It is said that it is a residence, but it is actually more like a big park, and there are many people who come to stroll around. Speaking of Wuzhuxuan, they are famous for the two, one is the famous female painter Shin Shiindang from the Joseon era, and the other is her third son, the famous Confucian Lee Gok Lee Er from the Li Dynasty. It may not be clear to say the name alone, but the avatars at 50,000 won and 5,000 won are estimated to be enough for everyone to know the popularity of the two. Wuzhuxuan is the former residence of Shen Shirentang. According to legend, Li Er of Ligu was born in the Dream Dragon Room here. Today, as South Korea’s No. 165 treasure, it mainly shows the architectural style of the Joseon period. Among them, the Wencheng Temple dedicated to Mr. Sugaya attracts many people to incense, and it is probably to study luck. The whole Wuzhuxuan is not very big, so you can walk slowly, about an hour to finish shopping. In addition to the Aegok Memorial Hall where works are displayed, the Gangneung City Museum is also located in Wuzhuxuan Park. There is only a simple one floor. The collection is not as good as the former. You can choose to visit.

西等记忆When I came out of Gyeongpodae, there happened to be an aunt about 50 at the consultation center who was working, so I ran to ask for a map. Auntie thought I was Korean, but found that I could not understand her. Ask me if I can understand English and answer "a little bit". She speaks fluent English with me, and I can only understand part of it. When she knew that I came to this place alone, she felt great. She asked me where I was going and answered "Jiangmen, I want to see the lighthouse". She didn't even know the existence of the lighthouse. She showed her pictures and told her that I thought the lighthouse was beautiful and wanted to see it. I told her about my route, and she told me that it would take a long time to travel and it would be better to take a car faster. However, I just want to walk around in such a quiet place, take a look, and slowly experience a different life. Later, she told me a story about Gyeongpodae, a romantic story. I always sigh in my heart that her English is so good, but mine is so bad. Bid farewell to my aunt, leave Jingpo Terrace, and walk along Jingpo Lake to the beach. There are several pavilions and platforms along the way. There are no people around. You can walk over and take pictures. It feels very leisurely and casual. In Gangneung, it is an ancient building in Gangneung. There is a beautiful legend in Gyeongpodae. It is said that eight moons can be seen during the Mid-Autumn Festival.

kiviboiThis art museum directly opposite the sea is only a 5-minute drive from Jeongdongjin Station. The colorful buildings on the slope are easy to identify. Arthur is the old name of Gangneung in the Silla era. The collection also contains many elements of Gangneung. It is estimated that this place was rated as the first place in Gangneung on the trip advisor. Rather than being a museum, it is more like an art park. The park outside the building is also equipped with a lot of large interactive art exhibits. The hotel's display is also full of art. There are some interesting art installations everywhere in the museum. You are completely immersed in the imagination and walking along the entire tour route. You can admire the outstanding works of local designers, and you can also feel the sea breeze on the terrace and travel through The tunnel of sound and light, etc., but it can be said to be a scenic spot that can be worth the price of the ticket. During the visit, we caught up with the special exhibition about Pinocchio, mainly exhibiting the mechanical devices similar to Pinocchio from all over the world, which can be considered more interesting. Friendly reminder, because the bus is not as convenient as you think, if you need to go to the next destination, it is better to go to the reception desk and call a taxi.
