已經消失了的階梯壁畫@ 梨花洞壁畫村

不知大家有多少人去過這階梯,沒有去過可能也在韓劇中看過它,屋塔房王世子,陷入純情都有出現過的階梯。最近因為居民終於忍受不了絡繹不絕的遊客嘈音,以及對為遊客發展的咖啡店/精品店而被清拆舊屋的不滿等,兩道著名的花和魚階梯,都被居民刪掉。現在刪掉後的樣子:http://bit.ly/1Snnr2j 我去過這裡很多次,但剛剛想找找自己拍過的照片,結果只找到這一張…每次去這裡都是人潮不絕,我連照片也懶得拍…因為只拍到人一堆…只有這次在晚飯後在壁畫村的漫步,讓我有拍到一張沒有人的照片。這應該是也每次拍純情家門口都是晚上的原因?最近去的那次,其實也是住這裡附近,那時這壁畫都還在,不過沒有最後再去逛一次這階梯… 不過被遊客弄到藥房化妝品店滿街都是的香港人,應該也不能理解這附近的居民的心情吧? 更多資料:http://bit.ly/1NNrMqd

濟州旅行- Pinx Biotopia、本態博物館、方舟教會

Pinx Biotopia:水、風、石、地中博物館바람물돌박물관網頁 它們是由建築師伊潤丹設計的建築。當我在計劃四月旅行的時候,第一眼看到這個博物館的照片時,立即想起幾年前去日本直島的感覺。 Pinx Biotopia是濟州的一個resort,之前我看的韓國旅遊書說,要在resort住或者去光顧resort裡的餐廳,才可以參觀裡面的水和風博物館,所以我一早就打算去餐廳吃飯,那知到我想預約餐廳的那天,突現發現他們的網頁上出現了可以預約參觀博物館的頁面,然後我去的日子已經滿了…T.T 所以最後是沒去這裡… 每天有兩個參觀的時間可以預約,入場費是10000W。不過只在韓文版網頁上有預約的頁面。   這裡附近還有同樣是伊潤丹設計的方舟教會방주교회,每星期日9:30和11:00會有兩堂的崇拜。(當然是韓文的。) 另外安藤忠雄的設計的本態美術館본태박물관其實也在附近,可以把這些行程併在一起。如果有打算在 本態博物館的cafe喝咖啡或吃飯,記得買入場券時問問那連咖啡/用餐的package價格,我覺得價格不錯。我用餐也只是比門票用6000W,不過不包飲品。但我們另外叫了一杯飲品以後,就每人送了一個waffle! 如果你是會駕車的朋友,有GPS去這些地方就當然不是問題。如果你像我是不會駕車的人,我有兩個方法提供。 1. 先到濟州市外巴士站/機場,坐車到濟洲中文觀光區Chungmun Tourist Area중문관광단지,然後坐計程車去,車費大概11600W。(這是比較簡單,不會韓文的也應該可以,如果可以把你想去的地方的韓文名字,先抄下來,或者存手機給司機看就一定沒問題,我記得上次在濟州市外巴士站內的職員是會簡單英文,所以買巴士票也是沒問題。) 2. 這方法有點複雜…大家可以參考一下下面的地圖,希望大家能夠看得懂 先到濟州市外巴士站 坐車到782或782-1巴士상창리 정류장 (Sangchang-ri 巴士站),45分鐘左右 下車過馬路,到對面轉乘940巴士 五個站七分鐘左右就會到達상천리 정류장 (Sangcheon-ri巴士站) 再步行20分鐘左右就會到達本態博物館 본태박물관 再行就會到水、風、石博物館바람물돌박물관 根據下面的地圖,還沒有到本態博物館前應該就可以看到方舟教會방주교회。 我這次只去了本態博物館和方舟教會,兩個其實很近,然後也看到Pinx Biotopia的入口。三者都是可以步行的距離,不會太遠。
