Jump to: navigation, search

Miryang (밀양시) is a city in South Gyeongsang (Gyeongsangnam-do), in South Korea.

Understand[edit]

Miryang is a pleasant country town north of Busan surrounded my mountains and valleys. The area is a popular summer destination for Busan residents looking to escape the costal heat and humidity.

It is the setting for the award winning film 'Secret Sunshine', which won the Cannes 2007 prize for 'Best Actress' (The town's name Miryang actually means 'Secret Sunshine')

Get in[edit]

Train[edit]

Miryang is on the Seoul-Busan express KTX line. Seoul Station to Miryang is 2 hours and 30 minutes. Busan Station to Miryang is 35 minutes.

If you are leaving from Haeundae, Busan, then it is more convenient to use a slower (although infrequent) direct train from Haeundae train station (next to Haeundae subway) to Miryang that takes 1 hour. [[1]]

The train station is far from the city center, so a taxi or local bus is required to get there.


Bus[edit]

Miryang has an intercity bus station to major Korean cities. An express bus to/from Busan leaves every hour during the day and takes 1 hour to Seobu bus station in Busan. ( Won 5,000 )

The bus station is still fairly far from the city center, so a taxi or local bus is required to get there.

Get around[edit]

It should be noted that both the train station and the bus station are not within walking distance of the city center. A taxi or local bus would be the best way to get there.
