Travel by Bus

By bus: Fast and reliable bus services operate on expressways throughout the country, connecting almost all major (and minor) points. There are two kinds of express buses: regular express buses and deluxe express buses. The latter offers a higher standard of service; there are spacious seats and other facilities such as mobile phones and VCR’s.

Fares/Schedules are provided by the Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) at 02-729-9498
