[Living] How to use Intercity Bus Terminals in Daegu_4. Nambu Intercity Bus Terminal

※ Things you should know before you use the bus terminals!

1. tickets can only be bought in person, not online
2. they can only be bought on the day of travel not ahead of time
3. buses do not have seat numbers so can oversell

In the past, there weren't many international visitors or citizens living in Daegu and because of that intercity terminals have not provided international language services. However, as the number of foreign visitors or citizens grows, the needs of using intercity bus from international people are also increasing. This post would be helpful for them.

It is not difficult at all to get to the terminal or buy tickets at the terminal, though four different inter-city terminals might cause confusion. Each bus terminals is located in northeastern, northwestern, southeastern, and southeastern part of Daegu, normally heading to those directions as you see in the image below. Today's post is about Dongbu Intercity Bus Terminal.

3. Taxi
- When you take a taxi, say “Nambu Bus Terminal ro Gajooseyo" to the taxi driver.

Buses from Nambu Bus Terminal go to small cities and towns of the south-eastern part of Korea. I recommend you to use Dongbu Intercity Bus Terminal if you want to go to some famous tourist spots located in south-eastern area such as Gyeongju or Pohang.

As I already mentioned, there aren’t many visitors using this terminal so facilities at the terminal are in poor condition. Nevertheless, it will give you a unique feeling of visiting countryside terminals that people in the city rarely visit and experience.

You will spot that some of the buses are intra-city buses at the terminal. That's because the buses from this terminal go to immediate areas so that they don't need to be huge and comfortable. You can even use your Intra-city Transportation Bus Card on some of the buses. Occasionally, there might not be an empty seat in the bus.

Even though u luckily find a seat, please be considerate of the elderly when there aren't any seat in the bus for them, since it’s one of the virtues of Korea. Who knows? They might give you a small gift (crops that they grew like Corns or Sweet Potatoes) as a way of appreciation. If then, don’t be embarrassed and receive them. That’s also another virtue of Korea. :)
