How to access from Seoul:
There is a specific bus that you could take from Seoul.
*Taking a subway train (to get to Dong-Seoul Bus Terminal):
The name of the station for Dong-Seoul Bus Terminal is Subway Green Line (Line 2) at Gangbyeon (강변) Station; in other words, “Dong-Seoul bus terminal station.”

There are bus lines from Dong-Seoul to Guinsa (temple) almost every hour.

takes three hours but for weekends it takes longer

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.
Hope to see you there.
