Directions to the CARE Shelter in Pocheon:

Go to Gangbyeon Bus Station in Seoul (Gangbyeon Station, Line 2)

Come out of Exit 4, cross the street, and turn right. Cross another street. There will be a bus stop very close. Take Bus #11. Bus #11 takes 1.5 hours to reach Pocheon. It costs about 5,000 KRW, one way.

ou should get off at the stop “Naechon Joong Hackyo” (this means Naechon Middle School). After getting off the bus, walk toward Naechon Middle School. It should be to your right, but it depends which side of the road the bus drops you off. If you can’t figure out which direction it is, try asking one of the locals. If you are going the right way, you will walk past a Good Mart, on your left. You might want to pick up some food/drinks here. Continue walking until you get to a green bridge. Walk over the green bridge and cross the main highway. Walk toward the Hyundai service center and turn right. Walk toward Naechon Middle School (you should be able to see it now, right in front of you). Make another right before entering Naechon Middle School. Follow the very dirty and very muddy road about 300-400 meters. Look for signs for the CARE shelter on your right. Ring the buzzer to let the shelter workers know you have arrived. Have fun with the animals!
