Pyeongtaek is a city 35 kilometers south of Seoul in Gyeonggi province, South Korea. It is home to Osan Air Base.

Understand[edit]

It is also the center of the US Army's relocation from Yongsan Garrison in Seoul to USAG Humphreys in Pyeongtaek.

Get in[edit]

The Express Bus Terminal, Bus Terminal, and Pyeongtaek Train Station are all in the same area. One can even catch a rapid subway from Pyeongtaek to Yongsan Train Station. KTX (bullet train) tracks are being built. Expected completion around 2016.

Indian: Moti Mahal

Italian: Del Vino

Pork Rib: Hole in the wall right before Monkey Papas

Drink[edit][add listing]

If you're looking for craft beers head to Alley 64 which can be found by taking a quick right after Moti Mahal and then an immediate left by Ambercombie and Fitch.

The best place for cocktails is Monkey Papas which can be a little tricky to find the first time. Head into the alley across from Del Vino's and take a left when you hit the arcade games (pun intended). You should see a purple sign on the right hand side of the street. Another good indicator is to follow the foreigners-the large selection of inexpensive cocktails on an English menu, upbeat jams, and steady supply of gummy bears, popcorn, and other delicious snacks make this a popular spot for the foreigners to hang out after work.

Get out[edit]

  • Seoul from the seaport: there is a bus stop in front of the terminal, just 50 meters away. Take the bus #81 to Pyeongtaek Bus Terminal, which is the terminal for buses and trains. From then, take the line 1 subway to Seoul. Bus costs 1600 WON and takes 45/60 minutes, the subway to Seoul costs 2000 WON (+ 500 WON of deposit you get back at the exit, see Seoul#By subway) an takes at least 1h30 to reach Seoul Station.

Or pay a little extra (4,500 WON) and buy a train ticket to Yongsan Station (or Seoul Station) or Bus ticket from the Express Bus Terminal (behind the Caffe Pascucci)to the Express Bus Terminal in Seoul.

Heading to the Airport? Grab a bus ticket from the other bus terminal (Exit 1 from Pyeongtaek Station, head right, pass the Express Bus Terminal about 100 meter walk) to Gimpo or Incheon Airport. Expect the trip to take 2-3 hours depending on traffic.
