*** Map of Korea

 

Korea is a relatively small country and public transport is excellent so teachers often visit other towns and cities at the weekends and during holidays.  Buses and trains run throughout the country. A local bus ride costs between 500 and 800 won. In larger cities subways run from 5:30am until midnight. Taxis are everywhere. They are cheap and very convenient. There are regular domestic and international flights and it is easy to get a ferries to Korea's many islands or to Japan.

Trains
Since 2044 Korea has had a high-speed train (KTX) which operate at speeds of 300km per hour. In the past travelling from Seoul to Pusan took approximately four hours. It now takes two hours and forty minutes. The KTX means getting from one end of the country to the other is fast, safe, convenient and environmentally friendly.
