Korea Travel: Yongsan Station
The new Yongsan Station, completed in 2004, is a major rail hub in South Korea and the starting point for KTX trains to Gwangju and Mokpo.
Yongsan Station is just a few kilometers south of South Station and is also connected by subway.
The high-speed Honam Line, running KTX trains, connects Yongsan to Mokpo (with a spur line to Gwangju) in around 3 hours, 15 minutes.
Saemaeul express trains to Mokpo also leave from Yongsan Station and take around 4 hours, 40 minutes to complete the journey.
Yongsan Station is built into a huge I'Park department store and includes parts of Yongsan Electronics Market. The square and steps leading to the station are a popular meeting place and the venue for street performances and product promotion.
As well as Yongsan Electronics Market with its hundreds of cut-price electronics shops, selling every conceivable electronic appliance and gadget, the area is known for its excellent street stalls for a quick snack and a small red-light district with girls offering sexual services from glass boxes in front of small motel-style rooms. Foreign clients are not accepted and photography unwelcome!
