How to get to Daegu from Incheon Airport by Limousine Bus

The easiest way to get to Daegu from Incheon International Airport is to take a direct bus from the airport.  The seats and ride are very comfortable and there is no hassle involved.
On the first floor of the terminal, all arrivals have to pass baggage claim and process through Korean Customs Agents.  After exiting the customs area you will be in a busy section of the terminal.  Exit the building and once on the side walk proceed to the right.  You will see many ticket vending booths and there are also self operating kiosk terminals.  If you are paying cash, you will need to use a ticket window.

If you are paying with an acceptable credit/debit card, I would suggest just using the self issuing ticket kiosks.  The process is painless and can be done in about two minutes. 
Select English on the home screen. Then choose the destination city.  Next, choose the number of passengers who will be travelling to the destination city. You will see a layout of the available seats and just have to tap the seats that you want. Finally choose the departure time. The tickets will print out at the terminal on the kiosk. The tickets are printed in English and Korean.

The bus for Daegu is located at 10C.  This departure location is across the street from the arrivals terminal and is located to the far right side with your back to the terminal.
Once you arrive at 10C, you should wait for your bus to arrive and make sure that you verify the bus you are boarding is for DongDaegu.  If you have large bags or suitcases, they can be stored in the compartment under the bus. The bus driver will also verify your tickets before boarding.

Seats are assigned and if you have forgotten your seat choice, just look at the ticket stubs.  After you are seated you will need to put on your seat belts.  This is a requirement and the driver will advise everyone (in Korean) that this is the law and also company policy.  The drive rwill also come and verify that everyone has the seat belt fastened.
There is wifi available on each bus.  The wifi password is different for each bus.  Just ask the driver for the password. 

As there are no restrooms onboard the bus, the driver will make a stop at on of several rest areas along the way.  The driver will announce the stop before arriving and will likely give passengers ten minutes for a restroom break.  There are restaurants and concession booths, but remember you only have ten minutes.

Next settle in for the three to four hour ride to Daegu.  Sometimes the buses will stop in other cities along the way. Our bus stopped at Gumi.  The Gumi terminal is very close to the highway and we spent less than ten minutes off the highway.

Upon arrival at the bus terminal in Dongdaegu, you will have several options to make the rest of the journey to your home or final destination.  Taxis are located right outside the terminal. The station is also connected to the Dongdaegu railway and subway stations. Just follow the signs to get to the subway station platform which is three floors down.  There are elevators and escalators to make it easier depending on the time you arrive.  Be sure to check the time before heading down to the subway station!

Tickets are 39,400KRW for adults and 19,700 for children under 7.
The last bus departs from Incheon at 11:30P.M. each night of the week. Travel time varies slightly based on traffic and weather.
