TRANSPORTATION IN DAMYANG
well actually if you want to go for simple course all within walk distance (1-2km) or just take taxi HAHA if you lazy because taking bus... just make you confused and you have to stick on the timetable because THE BUS IS VERY RARE. But if you want to try be local, all bus starting from Damyang bus terminal, the same terminal where you arrived from seoul. And here i attached the time table in Korean HAHA

As always i chose Jimjilbang as my accomodation. And here i recommended this one for you. The one closest to the bus terminal and SUPER BIG. You even can see the building when your bus entering the city. Like usually my habit, buying 식혜sihkye ₩2500 and eggs ₩2000/3 is a must!

  1. hi!

    there's only 2 buses operating per day? 10:10hrs & 16:10hrs [timing for both to & fro timing?] So which mean i have to catch the 16:10hrs back to damyang bus terminal?

    2. hi,
      i will be going for a day trip. so i guess i was thinking of going Bamboo forest, Seungil Sikdang and Metasequoia street and Metaprovence. the earliest bus from seoul to damyang is only 8.10am. so i will only be reaching 11plus. the last bus from damyang to seoul is 1700hrs. do you think i have sufficient time? and are those 4 places walkable distance? will bamboo forest take out alot of time?

    3. For bamboo forest and seoungil sikdang is walking distance but metasequoia and metaprovence is quite far but if you want you can take taxi there around 15-20mins. Actually 4 hours is enough but too rush?
