Oh, and I'm also wondering, is it possible to travel to Yongpyong resort from Donghae?
Location: Places >> Central Asia >> South Korea
I need some help/advice regarding transportation (living in Busan)
Hey guys! So me and my friends decided to visit Korea for a ski/snowboarding trip from 27th Jan to 5th Feb. We'll be staying in Busan area, around samick beach town. Anyway, we decided to visit 2 ski resorts, Muju (Deogyusan Resort) and Yongpyong resort.
So my question is, how do you suggest we head to Deogyusan resort from Busan? There are self-transportation guides on the website, but I am not sure about the operating times for the transit services, like whether we can take midnight buses/trains. Also, how should we go about to travel to Yongpyong resort from Seoul? I am confused by the shuttle bus guide on the website. Are there more convenient alternatives? It would be great if you guys can help me out!
On a side note, we would love to meet with local CSers around, if anyone is free and willing!
Can't wait to visit Korea!
Congrats on your upcoming trip to Korea! I just came from a snowboarding trip in Yong Pyong myself and had a really great time. I took a bus from Incheon airport straight to Yong Pyong though. But the bus info can be found here: http://www.yongpyong.co.kr/eng/trans/tr_sbus.asp
If you also want snowboarding lessons or for someone to help you arrange your trip, try my snowboard instructor, Han. He's awesome! You may reach him with inquiries at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy your trip here! I know I did!
Hey Lois! Thanks for your help! I'll definitely take note of your recommendation. By the way, did you stay in the resort hostels at Yongpyong or was it just a one day thing for you?
