"Take a High Speed Train to Busan" Seoul City Hall Tip by bpacker

Seoul City Hall, Seoul: 9 reviews and 19 photos

  Me, Seoul Station
by bpacker
 
 

SKorea launched its first high speed train(KTX train) sometime in April 2004. I was very lucky to be the first few passengers to try it. I took a high speed train to Busan and it took about 3 hours. It was pretty much a smooth ride but the seats were rather narrow and you can really feel like a sardine if you have long legs. The ride cost about 45,000won.
To catch the train, take a subway to their spanking new Seoul station in the heart of the city. Buy your ticket from the counter ( Just say , "Busan", "KTX" ) and hop on the train.

Address: 110 Sejong-daero, Taepyeongno 1(il)-ga, Jung-gu, Seoul
Directions: Take the Seoul subway system’s line one or four and get off at Seoul Station.
