Seoul Guide

Know Before You Go

  • Learn the Korean alphabet. Not only can you learn it in a day, but it will make getting around the city easier. You'll be able to recognise destinations on street signs and order food items at restaurants with confidence.
  • South Korea does not have a tipping culture. If you do decide to tip, the amount is entirely up to you.
  • In some places around Seoul, the toilet paper dispenser is outside of the restroom entrance. Make sure you take enough in with you and toss the used toilet paper into the bin otherwise the toilet will become clogged.
  • If you hail a black cab, prepare to pay extra. These taxis charge a premium but aren't worth the price. Rather hop into a regular taxi, make sure the meter is running and save some money.

Getting Around Seoul

Seoul has a fantastic public transportation system that makes it easy to get around the city.

  • The best way to get around is on the subway. It's inexpensive and takes you to just about anywhere. Fares for trips less than 10 kilometres cost KRW 1,350, but if you buy a T-money card for KRW 2, 500 trips are reduced to KRW 1,250. The trains run from 5:30 am to 12:00 pm and it's best to avoid rush hour (8:00 am - 9:00 am and 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm) if you can.
  • Seoul's bus system is a bit more complicated for foreign travellers. If you are comfortable navigating the routes without an English translation, it's an affordable way to travel. Stops within the city limits cost between KRW 1,000 to 1,300 depending on your final destination. The night buses are also a safe way to get back to your hotel late in the evening.
  • Cabs are easy to hail from the street in Seoul. Fares for the silver, orange or white taxis start at KRW 2,800 for the first two kilometres and an extra KRW 100 for every kilometre after that. If you need to catch a cab during the evening, prices will increase by 20%.
  • While there is no need to rent a car in Seoul, you can rent one from the either of the cities airports. Keep in mind that traffic in the city is hectic and you'll need to be 21 or older.

Best time to visit Seoul

When is The Best Time to Visit Seoul?

The best time to visit Seoul is during the city's spring season. From March to May the city is overflowing with blossoming flowers and budding trees. Temperatures at this time of year are mild, though you will need a light jacket for the evening and travel expenses are low. However, even though hotel rates and flights are cheap, you'll still need to book early as the city isn't lacking visitors during this time.

Despite the oppressive summer heat, Seoul attracts crowds thanks to its vibrant festivals taking place in July and August. But the increase in foot traffic makes it one of the most expensive times to visit the city. Hotel rates are at their highest, rainfall is frequent, and there are long lines at many of the city's popular attractions.

Fall is another great time to visit Seoul if you are on a budget. Airfare and hotel rates are low, and the summer crowds start to thin out meaning shorter lines at the major attractions. Just plan your dates around Chusoek. It's a big holiday in South Korea, and prices spike around this time.

If you love your winter sports, December to February is an excellent time to visit the city. The cold weather welcomes in plenty of opportunities to ski in the mountain ranges near Seoul. You'll also find good deals on airfare and accommodation during this time. The only downside is the Lunar New Year if you are on a budget. Prices increase during this period and availability is difficult to find as families flock into Seoul to celebrate.

Airports in Seoul

Incheon International Airport

Incheon is the largest airport in South Korea and the main airport serving Seoul. There is a smaller airport called Gimpo International, but it only serves a limited amount of domestic and international flights.

Incheon has been voted the Best Airport Worldwide for 11 consecutive years and is considered the world's cleanest airport as well. Inside you'll find a casino, indoor gardens, an ice skating rink, a museum and even a golf course.

The airport is a hub for many airlines including Air Incheon, Air Seul, Korean Air and more. It's also a focus city for international airlines China Southern Airlines, Thai Airways, VietJet and Sky Angkor Airlines.

Getting To and From Incheon International Airport

If you need to transfer between Incheon and Gimpo the easiest way is with the A'REX train. Travel time to Gimpo will take 35 minutes and cost only KRW 3,100 one-way.
