Living in Ulsan

We are located in Ulsan, a cosmopolitan city with a population of 1 million people.
The area has the largest GDP per capita in South Korea and invests heavily in education. Mountains protect it from the environmental air issues faced by the larger metropolitan areas to the west of the country. Located in the south-east of Korea, its air is clean and fresh.

Climate

Ulsan has a monsoon-influenced subtropical climate, with somewhat cold but dry winters, and hot, humid summers. Monthly means range from 2 °C in January to 26 °C in August, with diurnal temperature ranges generally low. Its location on the Korean peninsula results in a seasonal lag, with the warmest days being in August and averaging very near 30 °C. Precipitation is relatively low in the winter months, but is made up by the high rainfall falling from April to September.

 

Transportation

The public transportation system is as good as any other major Korean city. The bus system shows a particular ETA at most bus stops. Ulsan Airport has more than 20 flights per day to and from Seoul’s Gimpo International Airport and 4 flights per week to and from Jeju International Airport. Korea’s high-speed train network, KTX, provides a high-speed link to Seoul, with a running time of just over 2 hours. The new KTX station (Ulsan Station) is in nearby Eonyang, with a series of express buses (5001-5004) as well as some city buses serving the new station.
