Movin' on the KTX
« on: February 23, 2013, 10:15:55 AM »
So my boyfriend and I are moving down to Daegu from Seoul. We're using KTX (1st class). My worry is that we each have 2 suitcases (for a total of 4 suitcases, for those less-than-savvy math people out there).

Wondering if this is going to be a problem? Anyone done this before? I'm figuring that going 1st class should alleviate this issue of baggage, but I'd rather be surprised now, rather than surprised at Seoul Station.

Thanks in advance!

It's no problem.  Simply tell the porter at the station to load your bags on the train while you sip cocktails in the VIP departure lounge.

To expand on the answer above, at the front of each car there is a luggage area that you can stow your suitcases. My family (a 5-person crew) visited and we fit all of their 2-week-stay suitcases and bags with little difficulty.

Pretty sure there's no limit on ktx luggage - at least from my experience...

When I went on the KTX there was enough space for 200 suitcases as it was virtually empty.

No problem at all. I moved from Busan to Seoul by KTX and there was no issue with my two luggage cases and my big fat backpack.

Since you are taking first class, don't forget to grab your free earphones, mints, snacks, and bottled water next to the vending machines~
