How to Get to Muju from Seoul

Muju Ski Resort Hotel Tirol Side Resort
Muju is famous for its skiing and snowboarding. It has one of the best slopes in Korea and isn’t too far from Seoul. There are a few different ways on how to get to Muju that you can choose from depending on your time and budget.

To keep the post from being to confusing and long winded I put them in tabs for you. Hopefully that makes planning the trip easier for you :).

TIP: Except for some holidays, locals buy their train/bus tickets on the day of. So if you get overwhelmed just go down an hour before and purchase a ticket!

The cheapest way on how to get to Muju from Seoul is taking a direct bus. It leaves from Nambu Bus Terminal and takes about 3.5 hours. First bus leaves at 8:30 and every bus leaves about an hour and 45 minutes after that. Last bus leaves at 2:35pm.

Last step. From Muju Terminal, the resort offers a bus shuttle service that will pick you up for free if you are a guest. If not, you will need to take a taxi. Be sure to call them before hand, otherwise you may not get on the bus and will have to pay the $23 cab ride like us :(.

We made a whole round trip of it visiting the traditional Hanok Village of Jeonju, then heading via bus to Muju. If you want to find a place to stay we checked out the famous Hotel Tirol that offers huge discounts on skiing/snowboarding and other great things.
