To participants from East Asian area, we do not recommend Incheon International Airport because Gimhae Airport is much closer to Gyeongju. (From Incheon Airport to Gyeongju it takes more than 5 hours.) Just in case you need, we provide some information: Bus schedule at Incheon Airport (language: E C J)
- From Gimhae Airport to Gyeongju it takes about 70 minutes by bus (15 times a day). The fare is 9,000 KRW. Departure time (to Gyeongju) at Gimhae Airport International Terminal is as folllows: 07:30 08:30 09:30 10:30 11:30 12:30 13:30 14:30 15:30 16:30 17:30 18:30 19:30 20:30 21:40
