We arrived and departed from here for our Seoul-Busan-Seoul KTX trips. Easily accessed and well serviced with elevators. The station waiting area is huge and well serviced by eateries and seating areas. It is also spotlessly clean. Good place to get to early before your train journey and relax a bit for the trip.

This is a usual station plaza and as such it provides all the necessary stores for train travel. It is quite new and very spacious and easy to get around.

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.
