There was no assigned seat for us. We were in a standing status. But here's the thing, if there's a vacant seat, you can occupy that as long as the occupant hasn't arrived yet. Good thing, on the four-hour train ride, I was able to get a seat majority of the time. There were only a few occasions I needed to stand. Mugunghwa is the regular train, nothing special, not like the KTX which is a bullet train but the whole trip was such a comfortable one and I absolutely enjoyed the view - the fields, mountains, and small communities. I did a bit of a video which I'll be sharing soon.
When we arrived in Seoul at past 2 in the afternoon, surprisingly, the weather was warm. Where is autumn? Seoul is northern than Daegu but why is it warmer here? But well, must be climate change. After checking in at Namsan Guesthouse and resting for two hours, we headed to explore the Myeongdong Market, which is just walking distance from our guesthouse.
