Planning a Trip
Getting There and Around
The province has one "international" airport at Gwangju and two domestic airports at Yeosu and Mokpo. They are constructing another international airport in Muan to replace the Yeosu and Mokpo airports. That airport is slated to be opened by 2010.
The KTX high-speed rail offers service to Jangwong, Songjeong-ni, Naju, Mokpo, and Gwangju. The Korean National Railroad (Korail) has a number of lines that run through the province and end at Mokpo, Yeosu, or Suncheon.
Buses connect Jeollanam-do to all parts of the country. Major cities are accessible from Seoul and from each other's local bus terminals. Buses bound for tourist destinations are best reached from local bus terminals in the nearest city or town.
