Besides its FREE or attractive LOW prices (from US$10), the bus shuttle services pick up visitors conveniently at various key places in downtown Seoul to major tourist attractions or local festivals which are otherwise not easily accessible due to multiple trains, intercity bus and local bus transfers required. Also, many of these destinations do not have regular local bus and visiting the next nearby attractions on the same day may not be easily accomplished.

Here are the Shuttle Bus Services available to Foreign Passport Holders in South Korea:

Note: Please visit the respective bus shuttle service website on the latest bus destinations, local festival packages, boarding point details and tour details. All reservations to be made online in advance. Original passport required on boarding.
