"How to go to Daegu?"

It could be difficult to find ways of going to other regions to foreign people.
Daegu Travel will introduce you how to get to Daegu by bus.

You can ride either a train or a bus to get to Daegu from other regions but buses are sometimes more operated than trains in a few regions.

Buses connecting Daegu and other regions can be divided into two :
Express bus, and Intercity bus.
Moreover, you will have different destinations depending on what you ride, express bus or intercity bus, when heading to other regions from Daegu.




1. Express bus
There are ‘Ilban’ Express buses (ordinary) and ‘Woodeung’ Express buses (premium). The premium bus has wider seats than that of the ordinary and is more frequently operated in evenings.
