Hello, all. I am deliberating between taking a train or bus to Gyeongju
I am considering the bus because it goes straight to the town area of Gyeongju rather than its outskirts, and seems much cheaper than using the train, which I am not sure will save me time (at seemingly much higher expense) since the train goes to Singyeongju on Gyeongju's outskirts and I have to take a cab into town.
Time-wise, the bus ride is estimated to be 50 mins, while that for train is 30 mins. If I factor the taxi ride after the train, the time difference may not be that big.
Expense-wise, the bus costs 4,100 to 4,900 won, while that for the train along is 10,700 won. Considering the taxi fare, the difference seems rather big between the bus and train + taxi option.
Does anyone have recommendations on which one I should pick? While hearing that the train ride offers nice scenery, I am wondering whether it is free seating or specifically assigned seating on the bus and trains.
