Hi All. Looking to visit Busan and Gyeongju next spring. Beendoing some research on how to get from A to B and I'm finding the info I get really scattered and confusing.
First, I read snippets of a "slow train" from Haeundae to Gyeongju, but most people seem to gloss over it because it's an hour and a half (as opposed to the KTX's 30 minutes. I'm perfectly happy travelling an hour an a half on the slow train if gets me in the middle of Gyeongju, and not in the KTX's station outside the city. Does anyone have any specific information on how to ride this "slow train"? Supposedly the views make it worth it too.
On buses, I'm having a hell of a time figuring out where the bus stations are exactly, or at least the stations that have buses going to Gyeongju. If possible I'd like to book a hotel that's walking distance to the bus station (or train station, see above) to make getting the bus a little less stressful. We stayed in a motel right next to the KTX station the last time we stayed in Busan, and it made getting a KTX ticket to Seoul worry-free.
Any tips would surely be appreciated!
