Users can go anywhere on a Ddareungi. Yet you might wonder which areas are the best for bike tours in the city. These are our recommended Ddareungi tour courses. The first is called the Cheonggye Plaza – Gwangjang Market course. With an uninterrupted bike path, it should be your first bike ride in the city along a beautiful stream. You can stroll along Cheonggyecheon Stream after parking your bike at a neaby rental station. Walk along the stream until Gwangjang Market, one of the best places to go for authentic Korean street food. The area is the first choice for many Ddareungi users.
Ddareungi users often enjoy using the bike service in place of public transportation. Ddareungi bikes are often used to access tourist attractions that are a bit too far to walk to or too inconvenient to access via public transportation, such as locations requiring subway transfers. A typical example is the Gwanghwamun Square – Gyeongbokgung Palace – Samcheongdong – Bukchon Hanok Village Course, which is too far to walk and inconvenient to access via public transit. The Ddareungi service is the best option to access these sites quickly and easily. Along this Ddareungi Course, walk through Gwanghwamun Square (the center of Seoul), visit pretty cafes and eateries on Samcheongdong Street, and relish in the city’s traditional beauty in Gyeongbokgung Palace and Bukchon Hanok Village.
