Korea’s Finest Public Transit: Daegu Highway (The Most Updated Ways to Book an Intercity Bus in Korea)

Korea’s Finest Public Transit: Daegu Intercity & Express Bus
The Most Updated Ways to Book an Intercity Bus in Korea

Not only does Daegu have one of the most developed railway and airway networks, it is also well-known for its highway and road systems. Due to its radial roads, Daegu has much less traffic jam. Seoulites and Busanians love the fact that they can save much time on the road in Daegu. In addition, the advent of highways passing through Daegu had made the city a central place for trading and transportation. It takes only an hour from Pohang, a marine city, by car. This inevitably helped Daegu to trade seafood and imported items.

Blessed with geological advantages, Daegu has also striven to maintain and improve transit networks earning the Best City for Roads Evaluations in 2011, 2012 and 2015. This award is based on how functional, safe and clean a city’s road network is. Insiders all know that Daegu has great areas to drive around. But, that’s going to be another discussion for later!
