Goyang (Goyang-si; Korean pronunciation: [ko.jaŋ]) is a city in Gyeonggi-do in the north of South Korea. It is part of the Seoul Capital Area, making Goyang one of Seoul's satellite cities. It is one of the largest cities in the Seoul Capital Area, with a population of just over 1 million. The city is the site of the Ilsan New Town, a planned city surrounding the Ilsandong-gu and Ilsanseo-gu districts of Goyang. It also includes Deogyang-gu which is closer to Seoul.

Seoul Metro

Reviewed By 232423 - wiltshire

Very clean subway system that is easy to navigate once you get used to it. The trains are incredibly prompt and you'll hear a lovely jingle before your train arrives. The map lights up on board so its really clear which stop is coming up next. The stations are very clean and you'll actively see cleaners wiping down the subways on a daily basis (London could learn a thing or two from this). We're not sure if its permitted or not but we never saw anyone eating or drinking on the subway and we used it a lot, so its something to be way of.
The underground stations are HUGE and take 5-10 minutes walking when you're swapping lines, something to think about if you're in a hurry.
You have to use the T Money card to use the subway, topping up at stations or convenience stores with cash.
Also - absolutely do not sit in the seats designated for the elderly/pregnant (even if they are empty during your trip). This is frowned upon.

Ilsan Lake Park

Reviewed By SixpackDC - Washington, DC

This is a man-made lake...with a nice walking path. It is fairly large...on the north shore of the lake, there are some nice places to eat/shop. Not particularly exciting but if you are in Ilsan, this is just about the only place to go.

The War Memorial of Korea

Poignant exhibits, war memorabilia, art works, and military equipment make this a perfect place to learn about Korea’s history of war, most notably with North Korea. Kids will enjoy the display of actual tanks and airplanes.

Never get bored visiting this museum, the exterior ground is currently under renovation. Comparing to my last visit they've added a few machinery guns and displays on the North Korean army side. One could spend an easy 3-4 hours! And the best part is it's free.

We went there since our daughter wanted to see the Korean wax museum up close and personal! Not a bad place to visit.

Great long straight location for a bike ride near the river. Lots of side for walking or running too. Gives good views of the Bridges. Can connect to Seoul Forest
