This week on the Walk and Talk, we head into Seoul and the massive Express Bus Terminal. Of all the transportation hubs in Seoul, this is the one that I perhaps use the most. Located in Gangnam, the terminal isn’t just one terminal, but two. It’s divided into two areas: the Express Bus Terminal side and the Central City side. Collectively they’re often referred to as the Gangnam Terminal.
The facility is huge with several shops, a Shinsegae Department Store, and tons of restaurants. If you’re traveling by bus in Korea, this is a great launching point since it has transport to just about every corner of the peninsula. The only thing to take into consideration is that different destinations are served by the Express Bus Terminal and Central City Terminal sides. A quick call to the Tourism Line (1330) will let you know which side you need to buy a ticket from.
Purchasing tickets is easy, since everything is in Korean and English.
