    Useful tips:

    • Set out early to make the best of your trip at Everland. The theme park opens from 10am-9pm daily.
    • If there are no seats on the bus when it’s your turn to board, I would prefer to wait for the next one (around 15 minutes interval). Otherwise, you would have to stand throughout the journey.
    • For bus 5002, try to board the bus at the WHO A.U bus stop. We saw some passengers boarding the bus at the next stop. The bus was very crowded by then and they ended up standing throughout the journey.
    • Pay by T-Money rather than cash as it’s more convenient
    • Have your breakfast on the bus, to save time in the morning. Or simpy take a nap on the bus. You’re going to need all the energy at the theme park.
