How to get from Nami Island to Gangneung

There is no way to go from Nami Island (Gapyeong) to anywhere on the east coast. So here are your options:

1. Go through Seoul

Take a train or bus back to Seoul.

  • Train
    • costs 3400 ~ 4000KRW
    • Take a little over an hour
  • Bus
    • costs about 8000 (This is just a guess. The bus website is down right now.)
    • Takes about a hour.
  • Shuttle
    • cost 7500KRW
    • Leaves Nami Island at 16:00 (only one bus per day)
  • Metro
    • You can take the Seoul Metro to Gapyeong Station
    • I don’t know how much this costs, or how long it takes.

Take a bus or train to Gangneung

  • Bus
    • 3 hours by Express bus
    • less than 30000KRW (This is just a guess. The bus website is down right now.)
  • Train
    • about 9 hours. There is no direct bus going east-west in Korea.
    • I don’t know the cost. But you can call +82-1544-7788

2. Do a crazy 1,0001 bus rides through Korea. (This might not actually work.)

You can always call Tourist information to ask questions about the bus or train schedule. Call 1330 from any phone, anywhere in Korea.
