Coming from a country where we constantly read of our MRT breaking down, the subway in Busan [and also in Seoul] was exellent by comparison. Journey starts from about Won1,400 and hence more worthwhile if for longer journeys. Ride was smooth and efficient. Announcement was...More

They hire friendly retired people to answer your questions, recommending you the best route to and from the place. Speaking wonderful English. That is grateful! As there are not many lines running, the travel is quite enjoyable!

The Busan subway system is easy to use. It is affordable and clean. It doesn't go to all of the top attractions, however, so be prepared for transfers via bus as well.

Easy, cheap and fast. English menu option and simple to use. I doubt that there is a better way to travel.

Four metro lines. Primarily used lines 1 & 2 to access most sites. One zone one way 1,400 KRW & two zone one way 1,600 KRW. Day pass 5,000 KRW. Flat rate regardless of distance. Frankly, if you are more than two people travelling short...More
