After eating we caught the 1402 into downtown Ulsan. This was our first time hopping on this particular bus and it took us through several new neighborhoods. Initally, it turned in the wrong direction and we just looked at each other-oh well...here we go. But this bus ended up shaving about 20 minutes off our travel time, getting us into downtown in about 40 minutes. Total fare for the trip was 1100 won or a little over $1.25. The buses are a cheap and reliable way to get from "a to b" here, as long as you understand where "b" is and how to get back to "a".
The forest was planted to help mitigate some of the flooding that takes place in the summers and provide the people of Ulsan a retreat from the noise and congestion of the city.
