While the transportation system is easy and convenient to take, Korea doesn’t make route information very easy at times and it takes internet research and effort to find your routes to places. Nevertheless, with persistence you will find it. Plotting my way to Boseong Tea Fields out of Daegu took a bit of effort to research.

There are no Daegu direct buses or trains to Boseong. There are two routes from Daegu ( Gwangju and Suncheon— both transfer cities offer a wealth of goodness if you choose to explore it along the way!) There are Korail stations in each city but I chose the bus route path. If you want a train, please research your findings and leave your trail in the comments section so others can benefit from your research.

All the info here, I found online and modified with my own findings:
To Readers: if you appreciate the information below, please  comment as it took a lot of work.
To Unknown Contributors: If you find some of your info copied & pasted here, but your work uncredited please let me know and I will link your site to this. It wasn’t my intention to post this information, but it took much effort to research such that I wanted to make it available to all.

Boseong Bus Terminal to Green Tea Plantation & Yulpo
Approx 10-15 minute ride  (Approx. 1200 W)

At Boseong take a local bus to Yulpo (approx. 20 mins)
More information, contact the Boseong Bus Terminal: 061-852-2777

Getting to Boseong Tea Plantation :

“Take the city bus bound for the plantation at Boseong bus terminal, cost: 850 won.
Ask the driver to stop at the plantation (say «Nokcha Pat» for plantation).
From the bus stop walk up the road to the right to the first green tea field.

On a note, there is another green tea field a bit further along the highway.
The bus doesn’t stop there however, so you will either have to walk up the highway or grab a taxi to there. The second one is arguably more spectacular.”

  • I just came back and your directions were pretty accurate from Gwangju. The only things that seemed to be different is the price is now ₩8400 one way to Boseong and you go to the green counter to get a ticket because the orange is for the express buses. You can also easily get your ticket from a kiosk instead of waiting in line.

    So awesome of you to do this! I have to use the bus often around Mexico as well, and it can also get a bit complicated!

    • @Laura: Thanks. I can only imagine that Mexico’s bus system might be a little crazy! Somehow, we find a way to work with it, huh?
      @Chance: Thanks, lady. This you know. Korea’s bus system is great but finding information on it can take a lot of time and sometimes, internet scouring.
