Take an ITX and enjoy Gapyeong, Gangchon, and Chuncheon

Chuncheon, Gangwon, Korea

If you are on an excursion in the fall, the “train to go to Chuncheon” is perfect. As the old Gyeongchun Line train stopped operating, the “train to go to Chuncheon” disappeared for a while, but the “ITX-Chunchun” semi-high-speed train is taking over again.
Singer Kim Hyun-cheol, who sang <The Train to Chuncheon>, said that he made this song by remembering the gloomy memories he had in Gangchon without going to Chuncheon Station because he couldn't afford his heart when he was unlucky. At that time, the place called Chuncheon might have felt quite a bit far away, but now the travel time between Cheongnyangni and Chuncheon is much shorter thanks to the semi-high-speed train ITX, so I don't think there will be any unfortunate things that couldn't go to Chuncheon.

Moreover, it is more attractive because it has a double-decker seat that can not be seen anywhere in Korea. I want to be perfect for a romantic autumn trip.
Some ITXs are unusually decorated with mother-of-pearl.
Gapyeong Station colored by autumn memories

ITX operates between Yongsan, Cheongnyangni, Pyeongnae-hopyeong, Gapyeong, Namchuncheon, and Chuncheon stations. Depending on the time of day, it stops at other stations such as Maseok, Cheongpyeong, and Gangchon. If you are looking for a place to go for an autumn trip, let's get down to Gapyeong Station first. If you take the city tour bus in front of Gapyeong Station, you can visit various attractions from Nami Island to Morning Calm Arboretum, Petite France, and Jara Island.

Morning Calm Arboretum that creates a different taste in each season


It is dying in this autumn light. The color hasn't spread properly yet, but there's a lot of bulging energy.

Morning Calm Arboretum for a nice autumn walk
Soon, various broad-leaved trees, including maple trees, will create a beautiful autumn landscape, and silver grass will harmonize in them to add attractions. Autumn flowers are also added here.

As autumn wildflowers begin to show their faces, a chrysanthemum exhibition is held from October 5 to November 30. The autumn scent seems to be spreading well, as you can appreciate 3,000 chrysanthemums from 300 gardens in over 20 gardens, including 500 chrysanthemums.

In September, enjoy wild chrysanthemums and autumn wild flowers such as gamguk, gujeolcho, beehive odor, gentian, and marigold, and enjoy chrysanthemums and autumn leaves from October to November. In particular, the Korean garden, where Korean traditional architectural beauty stands out, is enough to enjoy autumn.

Nami Island

Belongs to Chuncheon in the administrative district, but since the dock is located in Gapyeong-gun, it is convenient to move down to ITX Gapyeong Station.

You can also travel to Nami Island with ITX
It is wonderful to visit any time of the year, but the charm of autumn is different. Just walking along the central pine tree and metasequoia roads, which represent Nami Island, is full of autumn. When you step inside the island, there is a path full of ginkgo trees, and you can also see birch trees and cypress communities.

You can just walk slowly, or you can ride a couple bike or a family bike. You can spend a lot of time with a variety of experience spaces in various places such as the Craft Center, Environmental Center, Environmental School, Library, UNICEF Hall, and Song Museum.

Petite France


How about feeling an exotic autumn in Korea? As the name suggests, it is reminiscent of “Little France” and is famous for filming locations for dramas such as Beethoven Virus and Secret Garden. Although not very large, it has a variety of attractions, including the Saint Exupery Memorial, the French Traditional House Exhibition, the Music Box House and the European Doll House. In addition, various performances such as mime, puppet show, marionette, and music box play are added to add special charm.

Petite France where you can enjoy the exotic autumn
Various events and festivals are held by season. In October, a “European Antique Flea Market Exhibition” will be held in a French village in the alleys. The European antique auction will be held every week on Saturdays and Sundays at 10am and 2pm while 500 antique works are displayed and sold.

If you take the ITX to Gapyeong Station, don't miss the Jarasum Jazz Festival, which runs from October 3-6. The enchanting autumn colored with sweet jazz will unfold before your eyes.

Gangchon Station with a rough, pure charm
If the attractions of Gapyeong were ordered and elegant, the entertainment in Gangchon was more pure and rough.

It's the charm of Gangchon that feels free and uncluttered.
Beautiful writing with the theme of Gangchon
In the daytime, you ride a four-wheeled bike and walk around the streets roughly, and in the evening, ride the rides at Gangchon Land, a small amusement park that is perfect for an amusement park.
You can meet beautiful writings on the theme of Gangchon.
Unusual fun that you have never experienced in a famous A-class theme park stimulates concentricity.

Check out the old Gangchon Station, famous for its graffiti. The tracks in history have disappeared, but only graffiti remains.

Gangchon Rail Park Station, the old Gangchon Station

The old Gangchon Station, which was visited without people, is a rail park


As he transformed into a station, he rejuvenated.

You can ride a rail bike from Gangchon Station to Gimyujeong Station.

If you need phytoncide, go to Gugok Falls. It is a gentle course of about 20 minutes from the ticket office to the waterfall, so everyone can walk easily. If you want to feel the energy of autumn, let's take a little more power and climb up to Munbae Village, a remote mountainous village. You will climb for about 40 minutes along the ridge guide board on the right side of the entrance to the Gokgok Falls. Munbae Village, which seems to sit on the top of a mountain, is famous for its restaurants selling wild vegetable bibimbap or local chicken. A small ecological park is full of silver grass, so it is good to see the autumn leaves and silver grass in autumn.

Chuncheon Station with a beautiful cosmos
If you want to enjoy the rail park mentioned in Gangchon as a more comfortable course, get off at ITX Namchuncheon Station. Currently, the rail park operates from Gimyujeong Station, Gangchon Station, and Gyeonggang Station. It is known that the route from Gimyujeong Station to Gangchon Station is downhill, so you can enjoy the rail bike with excitement and comfort.
The only subway station named after people in Korea
Rail Park Kim Yu-jeong Station is impressive with the theme of literary books from Gangwon-do, in line with local characteristics. In addition, there are Kim Yu-Jung Literature Village and Sillay Yagi-gil near Kim Yu-Jung Station, making it suitable for autumn trips. ITX does not stop at Kim Yu-jeong Station with this charm. Therefore, if you want to visit Kim Yu-jeong Station during your ITX trip, getting off at Namchuncheon Station is the easiest way.

The final stop of the ITX descending line is Chuncheon Station. Not long ago, when I got off at Chuncheon Station, the surrounding scenery was not very good. This is because there was a long line of unsightly fences on the camp page, a US military unit, in front of Chuncheon Station. However, if you are looking for Chuncheon Station, you will be amazed by the changed surrounding scenery.
A new attraction in front of Chuncheon Station, Chuncheon Peace Ecological Park
This is because the fence of the camp page was destroyed in June and it was completely opened under the name of 'Chuncheon Peace Ecological Park'. Rapeseed field was established in June, and now the place is in full swing, the autumn messenger. There are many people who can walk through the wide cosmos field and take pictures. On one side, there is a small zoo with sheep, horses, rabbits, etc., which children love. If you are having trouble traveling in the autumn, take the ITX on the second floor train to Chuncheon Station. The romantic and tranquil scenery of the train journey will give you a 100-point autumn trip.
Cosmos is in full swing where American troops were.
