Korea's Shuttle Bus Services & Tours for Foreigners ONLY

Not known to many tourists to South Korea are the fantastic Shuttle Bus Services & Tours organised jointly by the local provinces and Tourism Organisations/Associations, exclusively for foreigners only to promote tourism.

Besides its 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.
