In this video we (Sam & Audrey) take the slow train from Pyeongtaek to Seoul. It was a last minute dash at the station, and we would not have made it had the train not been delayed. Unlike trains in many other parts of the world, such as in India or Thailand, being punctual is an absolute must in Korea given that trains are rarely behind schedule or delayed for any particular reason. As of late we've been taking the train into Seoul more often than not because the metro line takes nearby double the time to get there; therefore, instead of spending four hours there and back we're able to reduce the journey to merely two hours. I often prefer the more budget option, but in this case because of time scarcity on the weekends, I'd rather enjoy more time to explore the city.

The Mugunghwa is the slowest train in Korea's rail network and can be used to travel around the country. It is the only train that offers standing class seats. Since we got there late, the seats were gone and we had to travel in the middle compartment until passengers got off; in case you were wondering, standing seats are much more comfortable than they likely seem. Along the way we witnessed various kinds of scenery including rural farmland, residential apartments and crossing the Han River. Sam was so excited to arrive he sang a little song as an instrumental "Let it Be" version of the Beatles song was playing in the background.

Here you'll get to see the interior of the train, as well as part of Seoul Station:

이 비디오에서 우리는 (샘 & 오드리) 평택에서 서울 느린 기차를 타고. 이 역에서 마지막 순간 돌진했고, 우리는 기차가 지연되지 않았 만들었하지 않을 것입니다. 지키는 것 같은 인도 나 태국 등 세계의 많은 다른 부분에서 열차와는 달리 열차 스케줄 뒤에 거의 없거나 특정 이유로 지연 주어진 한국에서 절대해야 하입니다.지하철 라인 근처 거기에 도착하는 시간을 두 배로 걸리기 때문에 늦게로서 우리는보다 더 자주 서울에 기차를하지 복용 한하므로, 대신에 거기에 네 시간 지출 다시 우리는 단지 두 가지로 여행을 절감 할 수있어 시간. 나는 종종 더 많은 예산 옵션을 선호하지만,이 경우에는 주말에 시간 부족 때문에, 나는 오히려 도시를 탐험하기 위해 더 많은 시간을 즐길 것입니다.

무궁화는 한국의 철도 네트워크에서 가장 느린 열차와 나라를 여행 할 수 있습니다. 그것은 서 클래스 좌석을 제공하는 유일한 기차입니다. 우리가 늦게 좌석이 사라졌다했고, 우리는 승객이 내려서 때까지 중간 칸에 여행을했기 때문에, 경우에 당신은 좌석을 서 훨씬 더 편안 그들이 것으로 보인다보다 궁금했다.길을 따라 우리는 시골 농지, 주거용 아파트와 한강을 건너는 등 풍경의 다양한 종류를 목격했다. 샘은 그래서 그는 비틀즈 노래가 백그라운드에서 재생이 되었나요 수단 "놔둬"버전으로 약간의 노래를 불렀 도착 흥분했다.

여기에서 열차의 내부뿐만 아니라 서울역의 일부를 볼 얻을 것이다 :

The Mugunghwa-ho or Mugunghwa is a class of train operated by Korail, the national railroad of South Korea. Mugunghwa trains are the cheapest class of trains to operate cross-country. Prior to the introduction of the KTX in 2004, they were the most common passenger train along most railroad lines. Along rural lines such as the Gyeongbuk Line, they remain the only class of passenger train operating. They (and in some cases the Tonggeun) are the only trains to stop at many stations not served by Saemaul-ho or KTX trains. Mugunghwa are built to accommodate large numbers of standing passengers, and frequently have many more standees than sitting passengers. In contrast, the Saemaul-ho and KTX trains seldom permit any standees at all.

The Mugunghwa-ho takes its name from the mugunghwa, the national flower of South Korea: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mugunghwa-ho
