The Intercity Train Express (ITX) Cheongchun, a high-speed train operated by Korea Railroad, will offer special railroad travels for the year’s end.

The Songnyeon Nangman Yeolcha or the “Year-End Romance Train” is a unique way of bidding farewell to the old year and welcoming the New Year. The train departs from Bupyeong Station, and makes stops at Bucheon, Oryudong, Yeongdeungpo and Cheongryangri Stations before arriving at Gangchon Station. Participants may board and leave the train at any of the stops along the way.

While in Gangchon, participants will be served dinner against the backdrop of a beautiful nightscape, and will also have a chance to attend an acoustic guitar performance and a bonfire event. Tickets are 22,000 won per person.
