○ Sungyong Park: This is the time for ‘GyeongGi Culture' <Let me know~ GGC> to quickly deliver the cultural news of Gyeonggi Province. We are together every Friday. Let's meet Reporter Sooyoung Park, full of bright energy. Hello. Reporter Park!

▶ Sooyoung Park: Hello. This is Sooyoung Park, a “cultural fairy” that quickly conveys cultural news such as various exhibitions and performances in Gyeonggi-do. Today, I would like to introduce <Non-face-to-Face Self-Travel>, which completes your own way to heal your tired body and mind.

○ Sungyong Park: There must be a lot of people who are tired of their body and mind these days, but that's good news. What exactly is the trip?

▶ Sooyoung Park: This is the news of '2020 The Road of Life, Gyeonggi Bay Salt Road Campaign' that you enjoy walking with your feet. There are many salt farms in Gyeonggi Bay on the west coast. From Siheung to Ansan to Hwaseong, you can walk on the salt road of Gyeonggi Bay, which is 150 km long, and you can see the history, culture and ecological resources that connect the past, present and future of Gyeonggi. We will listen to the detailed story from Soonjoo Hwang, Team Manager, GyeongGi Cultural Foundation's Local Culture Team.

“The Salt Road is a concept road that guides you to the cultural, ecological and historical resources of the region along the coastline of Hwaseong, Ansan, and Siheung, the seas of Gyeonggi-do. The event period runs for 23 days from October 17th to November 8th, and during this period, applicants can walk the entire course at one time, or split every weekend. So, when you finish the race, we prepare a certain amount of completion certificate and predetermined products.”

○ Sungyong Park: Gyeonggi Bay Salt Road Campaign, which runs from October 17th to November 8th. The question is, I can walk the entire course at once, or I can divide it every weekend. Is it possible to check the authentication if it proceeds autonomously?

▶ Sooyoung Park: Yes, you need to proceed with your smartphone for authentication. You need to download a specific application (rambler walking app). Course confirmation and authentication can be done by using a specific app, and according to the GPS signal, it is possible to check whether the race has been completed or not, and road-related information is also provided, so all you have to do is walk accordingly.

○ Sungyong Park: Oh, that's amazing. You can choose the tour course that suits you before November 8th and finish it your own way.

▶ Sooyoung Park: Right. It is a non-face-to-face cultural tour in the era of COVID-19. While walking along the salt road in Gyeonggi Bay, you need to verify the points of the 14 bases in the Gyeonggi Bay Eco Museum Collection. Through this “Eco Museum,” you can once again check the value of Salt Road in Gyeonggi-do.

○ Sungyong Park: It will be fun to authenticate. I am curious about the ‘2020 Path of Life, Gyeonggi Bay Salt Road Campaign’ course.

▶ Sooyoung Park: There are two courses, A course and B course. I'll hear more from Soonjoo Hwang, Team Leader, GyeongGi Cultural Foundation's Regional Culture Team.

“We are preparing for the 144km course A course and the short course B course 120km. In fact, in addition to this, because of COVID-19, I designed a bicycle course to efficiently make non-face-to-face, non-contact travel, and it was canceled due to safety concerns. If you have prepared a bike tour, please apply for the next opportunity, and please note that this event is only preparing two walking tours: Course A and Course B.”

▶ Sooyoung Park: The 144km A course is a long-distance walking course where you can enjoy the scenery of the sea and tidal flats while walking along the sea route of Gyeonggi Bay. It is an attractive course for those who travel.

○ Sungyong Park: I am attracted to the 120km B course. I think I can come to the right healing while looking at the greenery and forest. Now, is there a must-walk course for this ‘Gyeonggi Bay Salt Road Campaign’, conducted in a special way?

▶ Sooyoung Park: You can enjoy the beautiful aspects of the day and night that change every moment, and it's a great place to be with children. I'll listen to the special place recommended by the team leader Soonjoo Hwang.

“The first thing that comes to mind when it comes to salt roads is the salt farm and the salt warehouse that stored the salt produced there. The remaining place is Siheung's Gaetgol Ecological Park. There is Siheung Gaetgol Ecological Park between the 1st, 2nd and 3rd section, and our salt warehouse is in this section. From Soraepo-gu, you will be able to see the ridges coming up from Soraepo-gu to Siheung, and you will be able to touch the white salt piled up in the salt storage with your own hands.”

○ Sungyong Park: Siheung's Gaetgol Ecological Park! It would be nice for the whole family to enjoy it with children~ In fact, it's wonderful and wonderful to touch the white salt accumulated in the salt warehouse by adults as well as children. I think some of you are listening to the broadcast and wondering how to participate. How do I apply to participate in the Salt Road Campaign?

▶ Sooyoung Park: Applications for participation are accepted through the GyeongGi Cultural Foundation website by October 30th. We will continue to listen to Soonjoo Hwang's team leader.

“People who apply to participate in the Sogeumgil Campaign will basically receive a souvenir from the participants, and those who finish the course will receive a completion medal, a certificate of completion, and an additional gift for the completion. Applications are accepted by October 30th, and you can find the application page by accessing the GyeongGi Cultural Foundation homepage'' and searching for Gyeonggi Bay Salt Road. You need to register as a member of the GyeongGi Cultural Foundation website and apply. We apply for the participation fee individually, and we are charged 10,000 won per person.”

○ Sungyong Park: Is there a souvenir just by participating? I have to challenge myself.

▶ Sooyoung Park: For the convenience of participants, we also provide a luggage delivery service and pickup service for each section. I hope many people will try it.

○ Sungyong Park: You can apply for the Salt Road Long Trip, a cultural tour and autonomous tour that you can complete anytime, anywhere, in your own way, on the GyeongGi Cultural Foundation website until next Friday, October 30th. If you are interested, please refer to the website.

▶ Sooyoung Park: It was said earlier that you need to leave a point certification for the middle point in the middle of the course. <Certification of a total of 14 base points for the Gyeonggi-man Eco Museum Collection> I think some of you may have wondered what the ‘Eco Museum’ mentioned at this time is.

○ Sungyong Park: That's right. I also thought, ‘What is an eco-museum?'

▶ Sooyoung Park: ‘Eco museum' is a word that combines ‘eco', which means ecology and residential environment, and ‘museum', which means museum. Among them, ‘Gyeonggiman Eco-Museum' refers to a unique type of museum in Siheung, Ansan, and Hwaseong, which borders Gyeonggi Bay. Let’s listen to a more detailed story from CEO Soon-Young Kim of the Fair Tour neighborhood.

[Interview/ Fair Tour Neighborhood Spring Kim Soon-young]

The Gyeonggi Bay Eco Museum is an effort to preserve and preserve the unique cultural and artistic resources of the region along the coastline of 524 km of Gyeonggi Bay located on the west coast of the Korean Peninsula.”

○ Sungyong Park: Siheung, Ansan, Hwaseong, that is, it is a special museum that strives to promote the unique cultural and artistic resources of the region within a specific region.

▶ Sooyoung Park: Right. Because it is not a museum inside a specific building, it is also known as a “roofless museum” instead of the word “eco museum”. I was trying to create a lot of content to preserve and inform the disappearing things. It is said that there is a place where people did not visit a lot because of this activity, and now it has become one of the places that many people visit.

[Interview/ Fair Tour Neighborhood Spring Kim Soon-young]

“If a large-scale buffered green area that stretches 4.1km from Okgu Park to Siheungcheon was previously recognized as a place of air pollution that blocks industrial complexes and residential areas, then it has been named <Gomsolnuri Forest>, whereby a large-scale green area is It was created. I've never been there, but it's so much better than I thought... Moreover, through a program called a day to enjoy art, arousing the artistic sensibility of artists and participants...”

○ Sungyong Park: Gomsolnuri Forest! Originally, the recognition itself improved in places that blocked industrial complexes and residential areas, and now it has become a place that many people visit.

▶ Sooyoung Park: That's right. In addition to the places I introduced today, there are various places such as Hojo Bee and Lotus Theme Park with a 300-year history. It would be good if you listen to it with interest and try to heal.

○ Sungyong Park: It was very useful information these days when the body and mind are tired. Then, shall we change the atmosphere? Did you come today with the news of “Gyeonggi-do Culture Day”?

▶ Sooyoung Park: Yes, Gyeonggi-do operates the last Wednesday of every month as ‘Gyeonggi-do Culture Day' and the last week as ‘Gyeonggi-do Culture Day Week'. We are here with the news of <Gyeonggi-do Culture Day> in October.

○ Sungyong Park: What kind of cultural news are you prepared for this time?
