By Bus from Gwangju and Ulsan
 

Types of bus service: Fast and reliable bus services operate on expressways throughout the country, connecting almost all major (and minor) points. At bus terminals, there are generally two types of buses: Express (고속, Gosok) and Intercity (시외, Sioe) buses. Each bus will show either Gosok or Sioe plus the destination (city). Bus terminals with the word ‘Jonghap’(종합) provide both types of buses while others will have will have either Gosok and Sioe buses.
Express (Gosok) buses run on expressways and usually go directly to the destination city. They do stop at a rest area along the way.  Gosok buses stop at a rest area but seldom make a stop-over in a city other than its destination. There are two kinds of express buses: regular express  (일반) buses and deluxe express (우등) buses. The latter offers a higher standard of service; there are spacious seats and other facilities such as mobile phones and VCR’s.
Intercity (Sioe) buses are either regular ( 일반 Ilban), which makes a number of stops along the way,  or straight (직행 Jikaeng), which agoes straight to the destination city. The sign on the front of the non-stop buses reads Mujeongcha (무정차) or ‘Jikaeng’ (직행). Sioe buses are generally the same - no class distinction. However, seats on late-night buses are usually wider. They also cost a little more.
