On my second trip to Boseong (보성) and the green tea fields. I had gone to Boseong in summer right after the green tea fields had been harvest. This past weekend I revisited Boseong and with the fall colors, it was gorgeous.
A friend from out-of-town and I boarded KTX in Yongsan at 8:00am with some triangle kimbap and ojingeo for breakfast and headed down south arriving in Gwangju five hours later.
After an hour-long misadventure with the wrong bus, we eventually caught the right bus to the Gwanju bus terminal where we caught another bus to Boseong. Once in Boseong we split a Shin ramyun (신라면) and a soju (소주) box and caught yet another bus to the fields.
It was a cold day, but the couple of bus rides through the country in heated busses were really nice. The colors are still vibrant in the south and the leaves are holding on to the branches rather firmly.
We skipped the tea museum and chose to hike up the mountain behind the museum before sunset. It was an easy hike; the scenery was lovely and the view from the top was really worth it.
After the hike it was very windy and much colder so we headed back to Boseong then back to Gwanju to caught a bus to Busan (부산).
