Transportations

Roughly the same size as Great Britain, Korea’s furthest points are generally within an easy day’s travel of one another. An extensive network of highways and secondary roads makes it fairly convenient to drive the approximate six hours from Seoul in the northwest to Busan in the southeast. Korea’s massive transportation infrastructure, which includes air, rail, busy, ferry and subways, makes it easy and convenient to move around the nation.

Subway Service

In Seoul, two agencies share responsibility for Korea's subway system, and more information can be found by visiting the Seoul Metropolitan Subway Corporation website or the Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit Corp. website.

For Busan, information can be found at the Busan Urban Transit Authority website.

Daegu City subway information is available at the Daegu Metropolitan Subway Corporation website.

Long-Distance Transportation

Korea Rail
Passenger trains operated by the Korean National Railroad also known as Korail are fast, reliable, and moderately priced. Korail has recently introduced the new high-speed rail system, KTX which takes just less than 3 hours for cross country travel from Seoul to Busan. Regular service between the two cities is also available, which costs slightly less than the KTX system, but which also takes twice as long to travel. All trains in the Korail network run on a strict schedule and are not affected by road congestion, which is especially convenient for weekend and holiday travel. Trains do sell out on weekends and national holidays, and advance reservations are recommended. Overseas visitors can purchase a Korea Rail Pass (KR PASS), which will allow them unlimited travel within a set number of days. Korail has also recently announced a co-operative program with Japan Rail, offering discounts to travelers utilizing both services. KR Passes are valid on any train in the country, except metro subways. Passes may be purchased in Korea at any train station, or in advance by visiting the Korean National Railroad website.

Korail also offers special, affordably priced travel packages (including transportation and accommodations) to Korea's major visitor destinations. More details about these packages, which are only provided by Aju Incentive Tours, the exclusive in-country agent for Korail, can be found by visiting our KoRail Packages page.

Express Bus Service
Korea is home of an efficient long-distance bus service and most major cities are served on routes from Seoul. Two types of service are available, Express Bus and the Superior Express Buses, which are popular for their wider seats and travelers conveniences such as mobile phones, VCRs and foot rests. Both buses offer late night service, saving time and accommodation charges. More information can be found at the Korea National Tourism Organization website Bus Transportation page.
