Getting around in Korea is no problem. Apartments are placed within walking distance from schools. Taxis are everywhere and are an easy way to traverse the city. Traveling to other towns and cities are quick, as Korea has an efficient and smooth-running bus system as well as bullet trains which is inexpensive. They run daily, even hourly, and can take you on an impromptu trip to anywhere in the country.
If you live in the bigger cities, there are subway systems which help you get from one end of the city to the other with little hassle as all signs are in both Korean and English. Busses range from 1200 -1400 KRW and the subways are usually between 1250 – 2100 KRW
