8am, 9am, 10am, 11am, 12am... But if you take the 11am bus you'll arrive at 2pm at Guinsa (takes about three hours).

At Dong-Seoul Bus Terminal, the ticket window for Guinsa is on the ground. (In American English, the 1st floor.)

When you buy tickets, say it clearly: “Gu-In-Sa.”

When you get off the bus at the bottom of Guinsa Temple, please come up to Templestay Information Center.
