      South Korea trip during Chuseok holidays

      South Korea Jul 20, 2014 at 11:13 AM

      Hello everybody!

      I booked my flight and stay in South Korea and unfortunately did not consider the major holiday, Chuseok, on September 8 this year. At this time I will be in Seoul but want to start my roun trip on September 9 already, via Andong, Gwangzu, Busan and Mokpo.

      Can anybody tell me what is the safest way to have a reliable and fast public transport at this time? I guess everything will be crowded. How can I book bus tickets in advance, or is it advisable to buy a KR Rail Pass so that I don´t have to worry and get a fixed reserved seat immediately?

      If locals can help me with information, that would be great. Thank you.

      transportation around South Korea - pass?

      South Korea Jul 15, 2014 at 3:30 PM

      Hello,

      I forgot to ask about the cheapest way of transportation between the cities in South Korea? I will be there for about 12 days, should I buy a tour pass which includes all bus fares ? is there anything like this and should I use it? Or does this only exist for the trains and are trains a better / cheaper option ?

      I will go from Seoul - Independence Hall and back - Andong - Guangzu - Busan - Mokpo - Seoul.

      Please let me know the best option!
      Thank you.

      Hello,

      We (a dutch couple of 2) are planning a trip around South Korea for about three weeks (mid september till mid october 2014). We want to hire a car and find accomodations ourselves. Will we be facing any trouble booking at the day we arrive in a city/village or must we book in advance (via internet)? We want to book our flight in advance and also some hotels the first and last days. In between we want our freedom of travelling and finding accomodations.
      Thanks for your time and answer!

      Onward transport from Jeongdongjin

      Kangwon-do Jul 16, 2011 at 12:16 AM

      It seems that Jeongdongjin is more popular with Asian travellers than English-speaking ones... no racism or other offence intended, just an observation.

      I'm trying to combine Jeongdongjin and Seoraksan for a 2-day trip, and trying to figure out transportation links. I've tried the KTO website, but Jeongdongjin isn't listed at all under the bus search. o_0

      Barring driving, is there any direct form of public transport between Jeongdongjin and either Sokcho or Geojin? I would appreciate greatly any nuggets of information, no matter how small.

      Thanks in advance for any answers! :)

      Sokcho Express Bus Terminal VS Sokcho Intercity Bus Terminal - any lodging in midnight?

      Sokch'o Dec 13, 2006 at 9:37 AM

      I will arrive at Seoul airport at 5:30pm on Jan 22 (Monday).
      I wanna take a bus to Sokcho.
      Do you think I should take the 23:30 bus or 20:30 bus?

      There are two bus terminals in Sokcho:
      - Sokcho Express Bus Terminal for 20:30 bus
      - Sokcho Intercity Bus Terminal for 23:30 bus

      Do you think I can still find a motel when i arrive at Sokcho so late?
      without advanced booking.

      I plan to base on and stay in Sokcho and do the following activities:
      - seeing Mt Seoraksan diff areas for two days (e.g. half day trip each trail)
      - visting a ski resort and try skiing for one day
      - going to Hwacheon Mountain Trout Festival for one day

      Going back to Seoul on Jan27.
      overnight in Seoul then fly back to Hong Kong on Jan 28 morning.

      How to go to Hwacheon Mountain Trout Festival?
