    1. Hi Iris,

      I’m not actually sure tbh however if you let me know your questions? I might be able to help.

  1. Hi,

    I was wondering … Do you know what the price/rate is for the luggage storage? I am trying to determine whether it would be better to book an extra night at my accommodation or not.

    Thanks for your help.

    1. Hi Donna,

      I was fairly sure it was 7000KRW for 24hours. That was about a year ago so it might have changed but I doubt by much.

      Hope that helps 🙂

  2. Hi Mark!

    Just wanted to ask if you can suggest to me the cheapest route from Gimhae Intl Airport to Haeundae and also going back? Is the bus or the subway line cheaper?

    Great website btw! More power to you! 🙂

    1. Hi Paulo,

      The subway would be the cheapest option (about 1400 won per person) however I would recommend catching the limousine bus for 6,000 won as it is direct. If you do catch the subway you will need to change subway lines at Sasang station.

      Hope that helps 🙂

        1. Hi Tara,

          If you are referring to the Airport Limo (which is a bus), I would say about 35-50 minutes depending on traffic 🙂

  3. My parents are leaving from Busan station to Gimhae International airport by limousine bus? I just want to be sure that they won’t get lost or confused since this is their first time to travel in Korea. I saw that the limousine bus stop is across the Chinatown in Busan. How will they pay for the bus fare? how many stops before reaching the airport? how many minutes from Busan Station to the airport by limousine bus? Thank you

  4. Hi,

    I’m Liong. Do you know what time is the first bus (limousine bus) from Seomyeon to Gimhae Airport? I only found the time table for airport to city but not city to airport. I will be staying somewhere at Seomyeon and my flight going home is in the morning. With all the luggage I would prefer limousine bus. Thank you

  5. Hi. Is it easy to find the limousine bus going to Gyeongju? How much would it cost? Also, is the limousine bus arriving from Gyeongju near the entrance of the airport?

      1. Thank you very much. May I ask also is there a different entrance for domestic and international flights? And is it near the drop-off area from the airport limousine bus terminal. Thank you.

  6. Hi,

    Just to confirm that the limousine bus do stop at Haeundae Beach? Do you know what time the limousine bus start from Haeundae beach to Gimhae airport? how long is the journey? as i am planning to take the 9am flight. do you think i can reach there on time?

    1. Hi Jesslyn,

      I believe the first limosuine bus leaves around 7am.

      You could catch bus 307 which leaves Haeundae at 4.50am (more info here)
