At the beginning of 2005 Korea has launched the KTX, high-speed train built in cooperation with the French TGV manufacturer.
Speed exceeds 300 kph (190 mph).
Some stretches of railway are still to be updated, anyway KTX is the fastest and most convenient way to move from Seoul to Busan or Kwangju.
Several flights are connecting these cities but due to short flight time and hassle moving to the airport makes it definitely not the preferred choice.
Also, fog may ground aircrafts at times.
KTX has restaurant cars. Economy and business class available at reasonable prices.

Type: Train
