First. I will introduce public transportation.
Public transportation in Seoul is very developed because many people are crowded in Seoul.
almost all people use the bus and metro. The bus is at ground level, and about 20-25 persons can get in one bus. the metro is at the underground, and so many people can get in one train.
Public transportation’s routes are a complex network, but if you know how to use, but if you know how to use, then, you can get to where you want to go comfortably and quickly.
In addition, using public transportation reduces air pollution , helps to relieve traffic jams, is very fast, we can save time, and we can go anywhere you like. Efficiency of public transportation is very good.
And one very important, efficient, amazing thing for public transportation is transportation(traffic) card, when you use this card, you can transfer from the bus to the metro or from the metro to the bus, you can pay for a small fare, and you don’t need to have any money.
So, public transportation in Seoul is very important thing like heart in body

In this festival, many colorful fireworks are launched into the sky at night.
this festival has been held in October (sometimes in September) since 2000.

Every year when this festival is held, this park is very crowded.
So I recommend you to go there by public transportation.
