Travel the length and breadth of South Korea over a week for $218.
If South Korea is on your travel wish list, make sure you check out the train passes just for travellers and ex-pats.
Travellers with a foreign passport can purchase a Korail Pass, valid for a specific time, and then travel freely all over South Korea within their selected period.
Getting around by rail in South Korea is fast — you can travel from Seoul to Busan, the length of the country, in around two hours on the super-fast KTX services.
Pass holders can buy tickets and make seat selections through the Korail website up to 30 days in advance.
Passes range from one, three, five and seven-day passes valid for consecutive days to two and four-day select passes, which are flexible.
A one-day pass costs about $90 (and $44 for a child). A seven-day consecutive pass will set you back about $218 (approximately $108 for a child). Groups of two to five people on the same travel schedule can save about 10 per cent.
Children under four travel free when accompanied by a paying adult.
