Main station in Busan, linked to the subway & where you take the KTX to Seoul. Very much smaller than Seoul station. But very much less hectic & much less walking for transfer as well. Some shops in here but the main shops & dining outlets are all across the station main road. For those who want convenience & time saving when taking the KTX, stay at the various hotels within the station.

We took the KTX to Seoul and all went well. This station plaza has cafés, restaurants and shops to explore before the train ride. Information counter staff speak English and signage is clear.

The Busan Station Plaza is the transition area from main train station to nearby areas such as Chinatown, which is across the road. The plaza is nothing special in any regard, of course transportation and food can be avail there but that's kind of it.

Had a bad experience at the train station.

When I was about to leave Busan back to Seoul, there was some power outage in one of the stations between Busan and Seoul and trains were delayed. Announcements were made only in Korean, and I did not know what was going on and was left in the dark (Saw commotion around and figured something was wrong). Spoke to at least 5 staff, but none of the staff could speak English (including the ones manning the information counter). It's appalling how NONE of the staff could even speak basic English. Staff were not helpful at all and were extremely rude. Saw other tourists who don't speak Korean struggling with the same situation too.

One passenger was kind enough to explain to me what happened. In the end, the train was delayed for more than 4 hours.

Wouldn't recommend this place at all, unless you speak Korean or if you are comfortable figuring things out on your own.

This is where you get down when you come from Seoul on KTX. There is also a city tour point right next to this station. I stayed very next to this station. Good view at Night.

Conveniently located in the city center, the railroad station has some nice restaurants with decent prices. Trains to Seoul take just over two and a half hours.

You have to go outside the Busan station to take the Busan metro subway to Haeundae beach. Info desk at the station very helpful.

We arrived via KTX to Busan Station and that part wasn't bad at all. We got off and started walking towards the exits of the station. Once we got on the escalator down we were confused to where to get to the metro subway entrances. There is a lot of construction going on as well which added to the confusion.

To get to the bus stop, simply walk out and talk the escalator down to the ground level and walk out towards the street. The bus stops are there. There are also taxis that constantly drive up and down the street. If you see the red light on the front windshield, it literally means "empty car", so you can flag those down.

The metro subway entrance is just next to the bus stops. A helpful person led us to the stops thankfully after getting turned around due to the construction. Overall the station plaza will be great once the construction is done and the area is opened up. There are restrooms, cafes, and is the hub for transportation if arriving at the station.
