    This actually was very easy to use. My friend and I are both 18 and arrived in Incheon at 11 pm so we wanted a driver to pick us up as opposed to taking a late bus/train. As soon as we exited the main terminal our driver was standing with my name on a sign. The drive was quick and there was hardly any traffic probably because of the time it was. Our driver made sure that we arrived at the right place before leaving us there. Returning to the airport after our trip we used the AREX since it was during the day. I would definitely use black link again if we arrived at night or had a lot of luggage with us.

    This was our first time in Korea and I was glad I used Blacklink as the car service. We had Mr. Kim to pick us up from the ICN airport. He was friendly and pointed out sites during our trip to the hotel. He gave recommendations to restaurants and tips for eatery and they were great. The next time we are in Korea, we will definitely use Blacklink again.

    Mr. Lee our driver was friendly and patient. We were a little delayed in getting through customs and then claiming luggage. He waited while I also picked up a wifi egg which due to confusing directions from the company took a while. Despite not speaking English he was friendly and drove us to our hotel quickly. We also booked him for the return to the airport 5 days later.

    Bugaksan Mountain (북악산)

    Area of Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul

    home

    Seoul is enveloped by mountains, consisting of Bugaksan, Namsan, Naksan, and Inwangsan to name a few major peaks surrounding the city. Bugaksan, the mountain located to the north of Seoul, is the highest among these and is a southern offshoot of Bukhansan Mountain. It is also referred to as Baegaksan.

    Seoul Fortress Wall runs along the mountain ridge and Changuimun (also called Jahamun), one of the four small gates surrounding the castle town during the Joseon Dynasty, is on the west side of the mountain near Inwangsan Mountain. Running between Changuimun and Arirang Hill in Jeongreung, Bugak Skyway is a scenic road overlooking downtown Seoul; it also passes through a variety of attractions such as Changuimun and Bugak Pavilion. Another attraction is Samcheong Park at the southern foot of Bugaksan Mountain.

    Inwangsan Mountain (to the west of Bugaksan) and Naksan (to the east) were considered ideal locations, according to the philosophy of Feng Shui. Known for its rugged granite, Inwangsan Mountain was the site of many tigers attacks during the founding of the Joseon Dynasty. According to legend, the king entreated the mountain deity to send the tigers across the Yalu River. Even though the tigers were banished from Inwangsan, one female tiger bearing babies was allowed to remain on the mountain. The babies, subsequently multiplied and made Inwangsan a feared place, full of tigers.

    Inwang Skyway connects the east of Inwangsan to Bugaksan. The eastern side of Inwangsan was turned into a posh residential area while Guksadang (literally "National Shrine") was moved from Namsan to an area west of the mountain in the 1920s. Even today, shamans perform exorcisms at the shrine, as well as rituals honoring the mountain deities.

Cheonjangsang, there are 9 gardens such as a garden of conifers, a garden of broadleaf trees and an ornamental garden, 3 botanical gardens with edible & medicinal plants garden, an aquatic garden and a wetland garden. There are 6 resting places as well.

    Hongneung Arboretum has beautiful scenery for every season. The garden of broadleaf trees behind the main building is the one that shows the change of season most dramatically. The hundreds of broadleaf trees appear their best in autumn. The arboretum is good for nature education walk because of the many nameplates offering information on the species and characteristics of each tree. There are also many things to see at the Forest Science Exhibition Hall which provides visitors with knowledge and information of the value of forests, forestry, and the forest industry. The building itself is an exhibition because the hall is made of Korean wood. Inside, there are three general exhibition rooms, a regular exhibit hall, a planning exhibit hall, and a special exhibit hall.

    You may look around from Garden 1 to Garden 9 in regular order or take the course from Garden 2, pass the Forest Science Exhibition Hall to the mountain ridge ending at Garden 1. Note that it takes approximately 3 hours to see everything, whichever course you may take.
