      I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me with information on the Lotte Marts at Seoul Station and Jamsil and the EMS courier services available at its store(s):

      3) What days are the Lotte Mart at Seoul Station and Jamsil closed?
      4) What time does the EMS counter close everyday at the Seoul Station branch (and Jamsil branch if they have it)? Are EMS counters open on Sundays?

      This is my first trip to Korea so any additional information you feel I need to know about Lotte Mart and the EMS service would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

      Around Korea by bus

      South Korea Mar 18, 2014 at 4:45 AM

      Hi All,

      For my forthcoming trip to S. Korea, I plan to take buses for following route:
      Seoul-Sokcho- Pohang/Gyeongju-Busan-Seoul

      I can easily google on which bus terminals, price, timetable, etc. but do I need to book in advance to have a guaranteed seat? If I go straight to the bus terminal and pay there on the date of travel, is there a risk that the places are sold out? And vice-versa: if I should reserve in advance, is there any way to do so, online in English in a secure way...

      I plan my trip for the second half of April.

      Ferry companies - Need help

      by penny_g Online Now Mar 7, 2014 at 8:24 AM

      Hi! I need some help for arranging a ferry trip from Busan to Fukuoka (Hakata) and return. I plan it for April this year.

      I googled and here they listed all the companies that offer it: Unfortunately, the websites of the ferry companies are only in Korean or Japanese.

      I would therefore highly appreciate any advice from a local or someone who did the same trip. Do you know which ferry line offers the best prices/services? Overnight trips should be fine. How can I procede with the booking, as their websites are not in English?

      Keeping luggage at Gimhae airport

      by PhamThuHa Online Now Jul 26, 2013 at 7:34 PM

      I tried to find information but from different websites I got different information. I don't know what I should do now. Please help me.
      1. I will arrive Gimhae around 10:05 of 31 August. I want to leave my luggage at the airport. I will come back around 22:00 of 1 September or later.
      The information in this website shows that there are 2 places to keep. 1 is at domestic terminal (8:30-20:30), 1 is at international terminal (6:30-last termination).
      Because my flight is in the early morning of 2 September so I don't think I can wait for the luggage counter at domestic terminal. Can I use that at international terminal and keep it for 3 days (from 31 August to early morning of 2 September).
      2. Is the domestic terminal far from the international terminal?
      Thanks a lot

      by Lad_uk Online Now Jan 11, 2012 at 10:03 AM


      I've been looking at places to visit in South Korea and from what I've read, Seoul and Gyeongju are on my list of places to visit. I've looked at Busan but it seems that its not really a place to visit for sightseeing. I get the impression its for people who want to go the beach, try the hot springs, go shopping and for conferences rather than seeing historical buildings and temples. I'm therefore thinking of leaving it out. Will I be making a mistake by skipping it? Is it still worth visiting and experiencing this city for what it is? Or use it as a base for day trips outside of Busan?
