What to do in your free time 🚴🚣🦒
It takes about 10 minutes to the next convenience store and about 15 minutes to the next bus station (buses run to Ulsan and Busan from here).
There are also the Yeongnam Alps which you can reach in 15 minutes by foot if you are interested in hiking. We also have a golf park nearby and an Amethyst cave with an amusement park, too. And if you are interested in riding and we have enough time, you can also try that.
How to get to your site ✈ 🗺
The easiest way is to go to Ulsan Train Station (Tongdosa), where we can pick you up by car, but there is also a bus running from the train station to the bus station nearby.
