Get inEdit

By trainEdit

 
Miryang Train Station

1 Miryang Station is on the Seoul-Busan express KTX line. Seoul Station to Miryang is 2 hours and 30 minutes. Busan Station to Miryang is 35 minutes.

If you are leaving from Haeundae, Busan, then it is more convenient to use a slower (although infrequent) direct train from Haeundae train station (next to Haeundae subway) to Miryang that takes one hour.

The train station is far from the city center, so a taxi or local bus is required to get there.

By busEdit

Miryang has an 2 intercity bus station with connections to major South Korean cities. An express bus to/from Busan leaves every hour during the day and takes one hour to Seobu bus station in Busan. The fare is ₩5,000. The bus station is still fairly far from the city center, so a taxi or local bus is required to get there.

By planeEdit

Busan's Gimhae International Airport is the nearest airport. Take the monorail to Busan's Seobu bus station to take a bus into Miryang. Otherwise from Incheon International Airport there is a high speed KTX directly to Miryang (Busan line). You can also take the A'rex train to Seoul Station for more frequent KTX services.

Get aroundEdit

 
Miryang local bus

Neither the train station nor the bus station are within walking distance of the city center. A taxi or local bus would be the best way to get there.

SeeEdit

  • 1 Yeongnamnu Pavilion (영남루), 39 Naeil-dong, Miryang. It's on a cliff near the Miryang town center, and has commanding views over the Miryang river. It is a great place to cool down and relax on a hot day.
  • 2 Eoreumgol (어름골), 166-2 Samyang-ri, Sannae-myeon, Miryang-si (city bus from Miryang Intercity Bus Terminal to Nammyeong or Eoreumgol Valley departs every 40 min and takes 50 min)). A valley referred to as the 'Ice Valley' that is unusually cold. There is trekking around the valley, and you can see ice at the top all year round. (There isn't much at the height of summer, but it is there)
  • 3 Pyochungsa Temple (표충사), 23 Gucheon-ri, Danjang-myeon, Miryang-si, +82 55-352-1150. Tranquil temple and great starting point for a hike up the 'Eoreumgol' ice valley.
