There is another nice place to refresh your head when you need a break which is not too far from Seoul. It is located where Bukhangang River and Namhangang River meet and it’s called Dumulmeori in Yangpyeong. Dumulmeori means ‘two water area’ and this place is famous for its 400 year old Zelkova tree which is really a giant tree. It is a privately owned place, still it’s a popular site for filming Korean TV dramas, movies, commercials and wedding pictures as well.
We had a chance to visit this place once before. It was my wife's suggestion and it was actually for a hotdog, ha. One of the famous female comedian mentioned the hotdogs of this place on the TV show and it became the most popular hotdog place in Korea since then. So we actually went there because of the hotdogs. Still it was a beautiful place and it’s very good to take a stroll. So I had to decide, whether this blog is for Food category or Travel category. And here it is.
This is the Zelkova tree that I stated above. Can you believe that it’s 400 years old? Look at the size of the people down there. It is incredible!
This is called Dumulmeori Dock where they used to run ancient ferries before. We could see some ducks instead.
You can take a walk along the way and it is very peaceful down there. Can you feel it from those pictures?
There is a photo zone providing a frame and this place is known as a place that makes your wish come true. It’s like a wishing well. Believe it or not.
This is the place for the hotdog that I mentioned above. It was very good. Why was I holding three? Because I was going to have two, haha.
