Trains

Korean trains are awesome. You can see much of the natural and urban beauty Korea has to offer from the comfort of a speedy train car.

Trains run on time, so don't be late. Timetables and electronic displays are readily available.

In addition to normal workday rush hours, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings and nights are popular travel times. It is best to purchase your ticket early in the day before the sell out.

More detailed information can be found on the Korean railroad website.

Buses, too!

Buses work in much the same way. The stations are less electronic, but if you can pronounce the name of your destination, you will find your way.

Sometimes tickets are purchased from the bus driver instead of at the ticket counter, and it's always a good idea to double check the destination with him as well.

More bus resources are available through the Korean tourism website.
