How to get to Kolon Hotel in Gyeongju, South Korea

There are four seemingly easy routes to get to Kolon Hotel in Gyeongju:

When you are in Gyeong-Ju City. You will most likely arrive at one of the three public terminals:
  • [a] SinGyeongJu Station (KTX),
  • [b] GyeongJu Station (slower trains),
  • [c] Bus terminals (inter-city and/or express; they are 100 meters apart from each other).

    In this case, you may take City Bus (Number 700, clearly marked). Do make sure that the bus is heading toward BulGukSa Temple. (Kolon Hotel is right before Bulguksa; the bus gives announcements in English also.) Fare is not more than 3000 KRW.

    You can always use a taxicab. But to Kolon, it takes some time from the City (45 min to 1 hr, as it is located near Bulguksa, a ``remote'' place from the city center.) Fare is also between 10,000~20,000 KRW depending upon the distance. (You pay the amount shown on the meter).

    For detailed instructions please look at or see the page of the hotel at (Click English at the top right corner. Go to "About Hotel" and go to "Location".)
