    From Busan to Yeosu, by bus, shuttle or cruise

    Local gov’t has assembled a plethora of options for Yeosu Expo transit

    There are various ways to get to the Yeosu Expo from Busan. Travelers can go by shuttle bus, intercity bus or take a leisurely cruise as Busan City strives to ensure local and foreign tourists are able to reach the expo site easily.

    Busan City has prepared a shuttle bus directly from six hotels in Busan to the expo site. To facilitate this, the city has made arrangements with the Lotte, Paradise, Nongshim, Commodore, Paragon and Toyoko-inn hotels. The packages that have been put together include expo tours and accommodation. The traveling time to Yeosu is about two hours, and guests can reserve their tickets at any of the aforementioned hotels’ websites.

    Others can choose to travel by sea from Busan Port to Yeosu Port Passenger Terminal. This takes slightly longer but also affords magnificent views of Busan’s beautiful shoreline and is highly recommended for those who are not in a rush.

    Busan’s representative cruise ship, PanStar Dream, will be plying this route. It will operate on six days: June 2, 9 and 23, July 14 and 28, and Aug. 11. While on board, tourists can enjoy various performances, a sauna and a cafe, as well as other luxury facilities. Reservations can be made via the PanStar website ( Each cruise will take about five hours to reach Yeosu. Meanwhile, those who wish to organize their own expo schedule can take an intercity bus.

    The bus from Busan West Bus Terminal (Sasang District) reaches Yeosu in two hours and 30 minutes, making this the quickest way to reach Yeosu by intercity bus. Six buses leave the station each day and one-way tickets cost 18,100 won ($16). Busan East Bus Terminal (Nopo-dong) is also running buses to Yeosu, with 13 leaving daily at a cost of 19,600 won. The traveling time is three hours and 10 minutes.
