TRANSPORTATION
hallym6

Hallym University is located at: 
 Hallym University 1 Hallymdaehak-gil, Chuncheon, Gangwon-do, 200-702 Korea. Chuncheon can be reached by car, bus and train.

Those traveling by car or bus are advised that Chuncheon, as the administrative heart of Kangwon province, is serviced with an excellent road system. It only takes an hour from East Seoul bus terminal to Chuncheon bus terminal by expressway bus.

In addition, the route leading to the city extends along the Han River, commanding a very scenic view.
 However, it is the difficulty of driving through the heavy traffic of a large city like Seoul that can make the journey unnecessarily long.
 
 

A viable alternative is to take the train.

The rail journey from Cheongnyangny station in Seoul to Chuncheon takes approximately one hour by Cheongchun ITX(intercity express train), and offers the traveler the opportunity to enjoy beautiful scenery.

The countryside around Chuncheon attracts sporting enthusiasts and other visitors throughout the year, and Chuncheon is also close to attractive resort towns such as Kangchon, popular with both local and visiting university students.

Chuncheon's calendar is also marked by an abundance of cultural activities, ranging from Festivals dedicated to Puppet theatre and Mime, to the International Animation Festival, and the traditional Snow and Ice Festival.

In addition, Chuncheon is a sporting capital, ranging from its hosting of the Chuncheon International Marathon every autumn, to its unique position as a center for winter sports.

An important part of any culture is its cuisine, and Chuncheon is renown throughout Korea for two local dishes: takkalbi and makkuksu.
 Takkalbi (seasoned chicken-on-the-bone), which is prepared on a shallow dish with chicken, finger-sized rice cakes, lettuce, onions, garlic, red peppers and other ingredients; then there is Makkuksu (buckwheat noodles), which is prepared with meat stock and a variety of seasonings, and is particularly popular in the summertime.

About Chuncheon :
