Korean cities can be connected within a few hours with modern KTX bullet trains, which offer various convenient routes for citizens and visitors alike. Due to their comfort, speed, and convenient departure and arrival stations, these high-speed trains are a popular choice.

In addition to being fast and environmentally friendly, the trains are also pressure-sealed, which reduces passenger discomfort, especially during tunnel passages. Triple-glazed glass and quality materials are used in the construction of KTX trains.

KTX trains travel at 305 km/h, but can reach 330 km/h at maximum. In less than three hours, you can reach Busan from Seoul if you travel at a regular top speed. The train set consists of 10 or 20 cars, and there are 2 classes for KTX passengers. Both classes of the Korea Train Express provide spacious, comfortable seats, as well as toilet facilities and vending machines.

KTX trains operated by Korail have no restaurant cars, as the trains are optimized for high capacity. However, vending machines sell food and drinks onboard.
