Visiting Gongju, the home of Baekje, will become easier for foreigners with a more accessible form of public transportation. Last year, Gongju-si built a station for the K-Travel Buses that come from Seoul and the bus route has been in operation since March.
The K-Travel Bus has three routes: a two-day trip to Gongju, a four-day trip along the west coast, and a seven-day trip around the country. Foreign tourists that visit Gongju on this bus will have access to a professional tour guide and be able to visit the Gongsanseong Fortress, the Songsanri Tomb Site, Magoksa Temple, Seokjangni Museum, and more, allowing them an authentic experience of Baekje culture.
For more information and for making reservations, visit the K-Travel Bus website (http://k-travelbus.com), or contact Hana Tour ITC at (02-365-1500). A Gongju-si official announced, “Through this new K-Travel Bus route, we look forward to seeing more foreign tourists in Gongju. We will try our best to ensure that vacation in Gongju is an unforgettable experience for all visitors.”
