    Train to Gyeongju

    by elPierro Written May 26, 2007

    Korail operates trainservices to Busan and some limited service to Deagu/Seoul.

    However busses are more frequent, cheaper and a lot faster. A trip to Busan takes about 2hrs for stretch of 100km.

    There are planns to connect Gyeongju to the KTX line which is the high-speed service, these trains are very fast and convenient and cut journey-times a lot.

    Transportation by Bike

    Gyeongju is a good setting for cyclers. There are good cycletracks and local maps provide sufficient information for cyclers to set out in the region.

    Though the city knows not much traffic and is flat, the region around it has some busy roads and some pretty big hills. But don't let this put you down, the sights are awesome and it's quite convenient travelling.

    One word of advice though, the separated cycle paths are on pavement level (don't cycle on the roads if you can use a pavement or cycle path!), and Korea has yet to invent a smooth step from pavement to street, the steps are tricky and sometimes very high.

    All over Gyeongju you can rent bikes for about W10.000 a day.

    Gyeongju Station

    The easiest way to visit Gyeongju is by train. The line runs from Seoul, via Daejeon and Daegu. Gyeongju station is rather small and uncomfortable compared to the big ultra-modern stations of Seoul, Busan and Daejeon.

    Take the "KUMHO EXPRESS" from Busan (Busan Central Bus Terminal, Nopo-dong) to Gyeongju. Faster and cheaper than taking the train which takes a full hours for the journey !

    Travelling time:1 hour and 10 minutes
    Ticket price:4,000won+
    The Bus departs every 15 minutes

    Bus from Seoul to Gyeongju

    by i-s-a Updated May 16, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    non-stop bus

    Take the Subway Line 3 going to Seoul Express Bus Terminal and follow the signs leading to Gyeongbuseon Line. It is quite straight forward but it would be helpful if you ask someone to write the name of the place in Hangul.

    Since the Korean names could be quite confusing to foreigners, be sure to get the right ticket....Gwangju and Gyeongju can be interchanged easily. You may end up in the wrong part of Korea!

    • Address
    19-4 Banpo-dong, Seocho-gu, Seoul

    Non-stop bus ticket costs W25,000 and it will be a long 5-hour journey from Seoul to Gyeongju.

    Taking the bus

    by amambaw Written Nov 28, 2004

    Being a tourist destination, Gyongju has mastered the fine art of making sure people can get to the popular sites quickly and easily. Within the city there are several routes, but if you're visiting local sites, there are two buses you need to know about: the #10 and the #11. These buses run in loops through the major tourists areas of the city (and they go in both directions). Starting at the bus terminals downtown, the buses loop out to Bomun Lake, to Bulguksa Temple, and to some of the lesser known areas. If you're not sure which one to take, there are information booths (with English speaking employees) at the bus and train stations who can direct you. The bus costs just over $1 for one fare.

    Taking the train

    by amambaw Written Nov 26, 2004

    Taking the train in Korea is perhaps one of the most relaxing experiences I've had so far in this country. The trains are very comfortable, and fast!

    We took the train from Busan to Gyongju. A round trip for 2 people only cost about $25, very cheap! Although the inter-city buses are cheaper, they don't have bathroom facilities, and they aren't quite as fast.

    The train has all the basic services provided: bathrooms, air conditioning/heat, snack trolley, etc.
