Pocheon Art Valley~ Jalan-Jalan Korea~

You might haven't heard about Pocheon right? When you come to Korea, all we know is Sorak Mountain, Nami Island, but little we know that there's actually this place which is also a definite good destination for you who wish to have a quiet vacation.

Mungkin tidak banyak di antara kalian yang pernah mendengar tentang Pocheon kan? Ketika kamu datang ke Korea, yang kebanyakan kita ketahui tentang wisata luar Seoul mungkin adalah Sorak Mountain, Nami Island, dsb, namun tidak banyak di antara kita yang mengetahui kalau sebenernya Pocheon juga merupakan salah satu tempat nyaman buat dijadikan sebagai tujuan wisata.
After taking bus no. 72 for like almost 2 hours we finally arrive at "Sinbokmyeon Samuso" bus stop, where we get off and will have to walk through some small alleys for around 15 minutes. This might be one of the reason why this place is not really popular among foreigner.

Setelah naik bus no. 72 selama sekitar 2 jam, kami akhirnya tiba di halte bus "Sinbokmyeon Samuso" di mana kami turun dan masih harus berjalan melewati jalan-jalan kecil selama kurang lebih 15 menit. Mungkin ini adalah salah satu alasan kenapa tempat ini kurang populer di kalangan turis asing.
The weather was so cold even the river is freezing >.<

Me and my Taiwan Friend~
When we finally see this sign, we were so happy that we are finally getting near to our destination.

Ketika melihat tanda ini, kami merasa super senang karena pada akhirnya kami bisa tiba di destinasi kami.
Around the ticketing office, you can also see these cute stuffs and there's also a map of where you can go around Pocheon aside from this Art Valley.

Di sekitar tempat jual tiket ini, anda bisa melihat beberapa benda lucu dan juga terdapat peta yang berisi informasi tentang tempat-tempat wisata yang terdapat di sekitar Pocheon selain Art Valley ini.

Information on Pocheon's Tourist Attraction


We bought the tickets for KRW 19,000 which contains 2 main entrance tickets and 2 return  monorail tickets.

Harga tiketnya berkisar sekitar KRW 19,000 untuk 2 tiket pintu utama dan 2 tiket monorail bolak balik.

Monorail + Entrance Tickets
After waiting for like 10~15 minutes for the next monorail to come, we finally get to take on the front seat. Oh yeah~! It's not that hard to get a front seat anyway, since there queue is not too long and there's not much people around this place.

Setelah menunggu selama 10~15 menit untuk monorail berikutnya datang, kami mendapat tempat duduk di bagian paling depan. Oh yeah~! Sebenarnya tidak terlalu sulit untuk mendapatkan kursi terdepan, karena antrian yang tidak begitu panjang, dan jumlah pengunjung yang tidak begitu banyak di daerah ini.
The rides takes around 5~7 minutes then we can finally get off on the last station, where we will get to take pictures with this cute stuffs. There's also a planetarium behind, where you can go for free but you might have to book it before hand so that you can get in to see the planetarium, otherwise, you will only get to see the exhibition as per below.

Setelah 5~7 menit, kami akhirnya turun di stasiun monorail yang terakhir, di sini kita bisa berfoto dengan beberapa patung lucu. Di bagian belakang terdapat sebuah planetarium di mana kamu bisa masuk gratis tanpa pungutan biaya apapun juga, namun kamu harus memesan jam terlebih dahulu. Bila datang tanpa bookingan, maka anda hanya bisa menyaksikan eksibisi seperti di bawah ini.





Do my eyebrow look like Lee's eyebrow in Naruto Anime? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
After playing around inside the exhibition, we finally get to go to the main attraction of this place the beautiful Valley~!!! Wow~!!!

Setelah asyik bermain di eksibisi luar angkasa, kami akhirnya tiba di atraksi utama dari tempat ini, yaitu lembah yang super super super bagus~!!! Wow~!!
Since pictures can't describe how beautiful this place is, I also took a short video on how this place really look like~! <3 And I just knew that this place is actually a place used for shooting one of Kim Jae Won's Drama~!

Karena foto tidak cukup untuk menggambarkan tempat bagus ini, aku juga merekam video singkat agar kalian bisa merasakan betapa indahnya tempat ini bila dilihat secara langsung~! <3 Dan juga tempat ini ternyata lokasi shooting salah satu drama yang dimainkan oleh Kim Jae Won~!
And then the last destination of Pocheon Art Valley is this cafe which sells dairy products. I think they owned a farm around here, since the dairy products feels so fresh and delicious, even the cheese taste different from the one we usually have in the market.

Tempat tujuan terakhir dari Pocheon Art Valley ini adalah salah satu cafe yang menjual banyak produk seperti susu, keju, dsb. Sepertinya mereka memiliki sebuah peternakan di sekitar sini karena segala sesuatu yang dijual di sini terasa begitu fresh~! Bahkan rasa keju yang aku makan di sini terasa berbeda dari keju yang biasa kita dapat di supermarket~!
Cheese Bread =P
Last but not least, another famous thing about Pocheon is its Makkeoli / rice wine, but too bad that we don't get to give it a try, because we don't know where to have a try. They were like almost no restaurant which sells food around here. >.< Therefore, we take a picture of this giant makkeoli for you~!

Terakhir, salah satu yang terkenal di sini adalah Makkeoli, tetapi sangat disayangkan ktia gak sempet pergi mencoba, karena kami tidak menemukan sebuah restoran pun di sekitar sini. >.< Oleh karena itu, sebagai gantinya kami menyajikan foto Makkeoli raksasa di bawah ini untuk kalian semua~!
Have you think of place to go for vacation next week? If you haven't got any idea, you might want to try to visit Pocheon Art Valley~!

Apakah kamu sudah menemukan tempat untuk jalan-jalan di minggu depan? Bila kamu belum ada ide sama sekali, mungkin kunjungan ke Pocheon Art Valley bisa menjadi sebuah ide yang baik~!

    1. Hi Inrie,

      Sorry for the late reply~ ^^ yes I went to pocheon from seoul. It's from subway station line 1 then I change to bus which goes from Seoul to Pocheon, and you will still have to walk for quite a distance.

      If you can read hangeul, then you can do everything by referring to naver map.

      If you still need direction, please mail me at inggridng@gmail.com

      Thanks,

      Inggrid
