Air

Muan International Airport is 25km north of the city and has flights to Jeju, Shanghai and Shenyang. There is no direct bus to the airport (a transfer is required at Muan). A taxi (around ₩30,000) is the best option.

Boat

Mokpo’s Coastal Ferry Terminal handles boats to smaller islands west and southwest of Mokpo. Sightseeing trips depart from here and cruise around the nearby islands.

The International Ferry Terminal has two sailings a day to Jeju-do. Slower car ferries leave at 9am and take 4½ hours. Fares start at ₩30,000 and vary based on class; fares for under 12s are half price. The faster, pricier Pink Dolphin (₩49,650) leaves at 2pm, taking three hours. Contrary to its name, there are no international routes from this terminal.

Bus

Mokpo’s bus terminal is several kilometres from the centre of town. Turn left outside the bus terminal, then left at the end of the road and walk down to the main road where bus 1 (₩1200, every 20 minutes) stops on the left. It runs to the train station, the ferry terminals and then on to Yudal Beach.
