The journey itself was smooth. No problem and at times you get to see the beautiful scenery of the Korean peninsula along the way. There were like 4 or 5 stop within the journey mainly closer to Busan and Seoul. I guess this is to cater other stations that passengers can come in or drop off but in essence, it's still an express train. They do serve food and stuff but we prepared ourselves with food from the station which you can bring in. Luggage compartment also is available so you don't have to worry about finding space.

Of course in Seoul you will arrive at Seoul Station. Seoul station seemed a bit smaller than Busan station, and older. The good thing is that it's the intersection of a few subway lines, the AREX and other trains so it's convenient to get around Seoul from here. As at the time I came with my family, we took a cab to go to our destination hotel which was in Myeongdong. Myeongdong is only like 2 subway stations away yet the ride took about an hour as it was pouring and the jam was pretty bad.

Overall, I think it's an enjoyable experience to ride the KTX. Over here in Malaysia, a four hour car ride to Penang actually takes 7 hours by train. In contrast, train is a faster option over in Korea. So you definitely can consider KTX as your option to travel around the country.
