Busan, South Korea- To a Terminal and beyond

Busan was our only port in South Korea, and it came between ports in Japan. A bus ride to downtown and back was our journey for the day.

Busan Train Terminal

The Train Station is the southern end for two of the most important railways in South Korea. It is also a station for another train line and a number of busses. Very new, very modern, very crowded.
