How to get out Daejeon

How to get out Daejeon

According to the city government, you can get to anywhere in South Korea from Daejeon within half a day. Seoul and Busan are less than an hour and two hours away, respectively, on the KTX. Gyeongju is also now rather accessible courtesy of the new Shin-Gyeongju KTX stop between Daegu and Busan. Seo-Daejeon Korail station will similarly link you up to Gwangju. There are several pick up spots around town for the airport bus, which charges a princely sum of about 14,000 won for the ride (3,500 won for the regular inter-city bus). Also see this articles Get in section for information on travel to Jeju. Another option to get to Jeju would be to take KTX to Busan and catch a ferry but this would be both less economical and efficient. Closer places of interest include:
  • Mt. Daedun, one of Korea's more famed mountains (you may have seen photos of its suspension bridge) is closeby at a 45 minute bus trip away. Buses depart from the Dong-gu Intercity bus terminal at 10:30AM. Miss it and you're out of luck.
  • Gongju, adjacent city and former capital of Baekje, known for its Beakje tombs. Also the gateway to hiking a nearby national park.
  • Cheongju, Daejeon's airport, and historic town in its own right. Birthplace of jikji, the world's oldest moving metal type print book.
  • During festival season, Daejeon is the natural transfer point for travellers from the south end of the country heading to Boryeong for its expat-oriented mud festival.
