New Tourism Specialty… Promotion of 2018 Visit Changwon Year
Changwon City Tour double-decker is rapidly emerging as a new tourism specialty. The city has recently adopted it to revitalize tourism before the ‘2018 Visit Changwon Year’. The city purchased 2 double-deckers of half open-top form and has been running it since September 22th. This bus consists of 17 seats on the 1st floor and 53 eats on the 2nd floor, so a total of 70 people can ride on it. Even people with disabilities can ride on it as the bus has a wheel chair lift.
The City Tour Bus departs from Changwon Center Station at 9:30am every day and drives to 8 major tourist sites 5 times a day in rotation: Yongji Lake Park ~ House of Changwon ~ City Seven ~ Masan Imagination Road ~ Masan Fishery Market ~ Machang Bridge ~ Jinhae Jehwangsan Park ~ Jinhaeru ~ Changwon Center Station (takes 2 hours and 30 minutes. The tour guide will be riding on the bus with tourists to explain the main tourist sites in an appealing way, and run a promotional video in 4 languages including Korean, English, Japanese, and Chinese for both domestic Korean and overseas Korean tourists to look around the major tourist sites of Changwon. Since tourists can ride the city tour bus all day by only purchasing one-day pass ticket, they can get off the bus at each tourist site to look around with ease.
The bus ticket costs 5,000 KRW for adults and 3,000 KRW for adolescents, soldiers, handicapped people, people of national merit, and elders at age 65 or above. Inquiries can be made to the Facilities Management Corporation (055-712-0777).
