Kumho Express Bus lines said Sunday that it is set to assign premium buses to their Gwangju-Incheon International Airport route starting this Friday, the 18th.

Along with Gwangshin Express Buslines, the company will pilot a test period till the end of this month and provide 6 regular round trips a day until June 1st.

Of course you can also experience the premium bus experience on the regular Gwangju-Seoul or Gwangju- Busan routes. The busses only have 21 seats, compared to 28 on a regular express bus which not only means more room for you to recline, about 165 degrees, but also offers you a personalized TV monitor which screens live tv channels, some movies and also music.

You are also provided with a hanger for your jacket etc as well as a tray table in case you have some work to do or for your snacks. There is also a partition/curtain for privacy.

Forgot to charge your phone? USB ports are provided to charge your personal devices so you can rest, relax and arrive at your destination worry free.

If you are travelling alone I would suggest opting for the single seats on the right of the bus, as getting in and out on the two left hand side seats can be a bit tight. Overall the experience is a good especially if you feel that you will stay awake throughout the bus ride.

Remember to buckle up!
