Travel in Korea with KTX

Remember the movie Train to Busan, where the main actor (Gong Yoo), his estranged daughter and other passengers trapped on a speeding train and fought with the soulless zombies all the way from Seoul to Busan? Korea Train eXpress (KTX) is the train featured in the movie. However, unlike what is shown in the movie, KTX is the fastest, safest and most comfortable transport in Korea. You can travel to various cities in Korea in just 3 hours.

KTX is South Korea’s high-speed rail system operated by Korail that runs on 5 lines (Gyeongbu Line, Honam Line, Gyeongjeon Line, Jeolla Line and Gyeonggang Line) with the top speed of 305kph. Gyeonggang Line has officially started running in December 2017, allowing visitors to plan a day trip from and to Gangwon-do.

KTX trains connect Seoul Station to Busan Station via Dongdaegu Station on the Gyeongbu Line; Jeonju Station and Yeosu Expo Station via Yongsan Station on the Jeolla Line. Both Seoul and Yongsan stations intersect with the Seoul subway system and other routes on Korea’s rail system. KTX makes it so easy to travel from one province to another in Korea.
