Baekun Lake

If you’ve ever taken the express bus from Sadang Station to Suwon, this is the charming lake you saw off the left-hand side of the road.  The startlingly vivid autumnal colors make visits in the fall especially rewarding.  This lake is relatively unknown to Seoulites, so don’t expect your Korean friends to know what you’re talking about when you mention it.

Getting there: Take Line 4 to Indeogwon Station and taxi up.  It’s about 5 minutes from the station.

Yangsuri (Town of Two Waters)

This neighborhood gets its name from the nearby confluence of the North and South Han Rivers.  It is one of the most beautiful spots in Korea.  Getting there is cheap too!  Just take Line 1 (중앙선) all the way east to Yangsu Station.  The ride out of the city along the Han River is just about the most scenic route anywhere on the subway system.
