We took the high speed train from Changwon to Seoul on October 28. It’s clean, fast and convenient. No complaints other than having to wear a mask courtesy of COVID-19. It’s a much better option to either driving or flying.

We used the train to get from Seoul to Jeunju. It was fast and affordable. The train was a bit tired but easy to navigate.

KTX trains are faster, convenient mode of transport between various cities in South Korea. I used the Ulsan-Seoul route and it took 2.5hours to reach and costed 53,500 won (Adult-economy class) one way.

However, the tickets are heavy on the pocket for a common man. The train stations & trains are clean with the basic facilities for a passenger. Passengers expect a quiet atmosphere when travelling so be aware of your noise levels.

Tickets can be bought either online via. website/mobile app or at the counter in the stations.

This train system is very easy to navigate and clean, purchasing tickets is easy once you have the right applications on your phone!

I was very pleased with my experience on the KTX from Seoul to Busan. The seats were comfortable and roomy with plenty of legroom. USB outlets in the walls allowed us to charge our devices. The backs of the chairs have fold-down tables and a little clip for propping up your phone. At the beginning of our journey, we were given a little goodie bag with nuts, a cookie, and a wet napkin. Very pleasant.

We bought the Korean rail Pass. It was difficult to use as several members of the KTX staff were not familiar with it. Try to make the reservations in advance or travel when there is not a holiday time. During the holidays, the trains are packed and you cannot find a seat.

It is efficient. It is not as impressive as the trains in Japan. In addition, the Japan Rail Pass works much better.

Travelled on KTX to Pyeongchang and the ride is very smooth and comfortable. The KTX App is available in english and it's easy to search and book for your tickets using the app. Book your tickets earlier if you are travelling during the peak season so that you can get a seat.
