Not that I didn't want to visit it before though. MK has recommended me to visit Naksan Fortress before but I just haven't found the right moment to hike; with the warm temperature nowadays..phew, hiking is mentally challenging. ^^
It just happened that my mood was pretty somber and I decided to explore the place.
There are two entrance - either:
from Dongdaemun station, Line 1 or 4, Exit 1 or 2. I failed to find Exit 1 so I went out from Exit 2 which was 50 metres away.
from Hyehwa station, Line 4, Exit 1.
What's the difference?
If you go from Dongdaemun station, you will meet Naksan Fortress first and so hiking you go! ^^ Bitter pill first and then sweet honey.
If you go from Hyehwa station, you will meet many chic restaurants and shops, then the flower staircase (Ihwa-dong), then only the fortress. Sweet honey first followed by bitter pill.
