Getting around on the metro was easy enough, and convenient. Best to get a hotel close to a station, which is also relatively easy.

The metro system is very convenient to use. Recommend to purchase a one day pass if you want to do sightseeing. The ticket machines accept only 1000 Won notes but exchange machines are also available if you want to get these notes. Most stations do...More

It is not a huge subway network but works very well. Absolutely safe and comfortable. Trains are very clean and new. Highly recommended especially to escape from the traffic jams.

Great way to get around in Busan metro area. The areas were well connected by the metro lines. It was recommended to use an electronic transit card as there was additional discount. I used T Money card which was also accepted in Seoul.

The whole network of different lines were well maintained and punctual. I saw a self-motorised wheelchair in the train on one of the rides in the morning.
