Seoul Express Bus Terminal is the beating heart of Korea’s intercity transportation network, connecting Seoul to every corner of the country, from large metropolitan cities to small rural counties. There are two terminals within the complex, divided by region; the original Seoul Express Bus Terminal with bus lines heading towards locations across Gyeongsang-do, Chungcheong-do, and Gangwon-do, and the newer Central City Terminal with bus lines heading towards locations across Jeolla-do and Chungcheong-do. Bus tickets can be bought at the terminal, or booked in advance through the ticket reservation website.
Besides providing comfortable, convenient intercity bus service, Seoul Express Bus Terminal also hosts a wide variety of shops and restaurants. Because of the centrality of its location and the plethora of subway lines stopping at the Express Bus Terminal station, the terminal has undergone massive retail development, with food courts and malls popping up all over areas of the complex, including Shinsegae Department Store, the Famille Street food court, and Enter6 Mall, attracting a constant flow of shoppers and diners throughout the week. From high-end luxury goods at Shinsegae Department Store to cheap clothing and wares in the adjacent underground Goto Mall, the complex surrounding Seoul Express Bus Terminal has it all.

Seoul Express Bus Terminal is divided into two buildings adjacent to each other; the original Seoul Express Bus Terminal on the east side and the newer Central City Terminal on the west side. The original Seoul Express Bus Terminal is the main terminal for bus lines heading to various locations in Gyeonggi-do, Gangwon-do, Chungcheong-do, Gyeongsang-do, including major cities such as Daegu, Cheonan, Daejeon, Busan, Ulsan, and Changwon. Central City Terminal is the main terminal for bus lines heading to various locations in Chungcheong-do and Jeolla-do, including major cities such as Gwangju, Jeonju, Cheongju, Mokpo, and Yeosu. Bus tickets can be bought at the terminal or in advance through H-Ticket. The further away the location, the more expensive the bus ticket will be.
The older of the two terminals, the original Seoul Express Bus Terminal was built in 1981 and currently hosts the Gyeongbu and Yeongdong bus lines bound for locations across Gyeongsang-do, Gangwon-do, and various locations in Chungcheong-do and Gyeonggi-do. It's a massive brutalist-style building with plenty of dining options, as well as a shopping center for clothing, curtains, bedding, and flowers located on its top six floors.
