The most convenient way to travel from city to city in Korea is by bus or train! The Express Bus Terminal, which is located in the Gangnam District, is famous for its underground shopping center and for having many good eats around the area. We recommend riding the express bus so you can stop by the super affordable shopping center and grab a bite to eat before you board your bus! Plus, the seats are super comfortable! Here at Creatrip, we provide a booking service for express buses route between Seoul and Busan, Gangnam, Sokcho, Yangyang, Pohang, Jeonju, and Gyeongju.

Also, here's a detailed explanation of how to ride the express bus :
