Transfers from airport

by ozpaul

Hi - We are planning a trip to Seoul in Dec this year. I have just received a quote for transfers from the airport to our hotel - over $300 Aus dollars!!!!! Needless to say - the quote was turned down!!! Can anyone recommend what is the best way to get from the airport to our Hotel. We will be staying at The Millenium Hilton in Seoul. Many thanks.

A taxi from the airport to the city is about 75USD. They have airport buses to major hotels and a airport rail to the subway.which is cheaper. the bus is about 15usd and rail I never took. Enjoy Seoul. it has a lot to offer Tommy x

Take (Route 2 Namsan Area) from the airport limousine bus stop 4B or 11A.
You can pay for the ticket at the booth or at the bus itself.

That's way too expensive. Don't touch it with a barge pole. There is an express train from the airport, which takes you to the domestic airport and from there you change to the underground. Both systems are easy to use and if you have any problems Koreans are extremely helpful. For example, I accidently pressed the button for a child's ticket and a local then sorted it all out for me. Don't pay that outrageous transfer fee.

The limo bus that I mentioned is 15,000 KRW.
You can always take public bus for cheaper, but then you will either need to walk or get a taxi from the public stop to the hotel.

Travel Tips for Seoul

Insa Dong(Old Town Rich in...

by Jun_Oh

Insa Dong(Old Town Rich in Fragrance of Authentic Korean Traditions ) Come to Insa-dong and feel the authentic zest of Korean life with a long history. Either side of this street is literally packed with a mass of galleries, antique shops, Korean paper goods shops, picture mounting stores, handicraft workshops, pottery stores, calligrapher's and painter's studios, Korean tea houses, Korean restaurants, and so on. The signboards set up on the walls of the stores, many of which read phrases or words from Korean literary classics, reflect the real aspects of life and art of Koreans dating back to the ancient times. Queen Elizabeth II paid her tribute of praise to the beauty of the original style pottery and traditional costumes of Korea discovered in this unique area during her visit in April 1999. The Insadong Festival, held every October, offers traditional outdoor music and dance shows, sampling parties of regional cuisine of the country, and other varied events. Shuttle service connecting over 10 galleries in this area and P'yongch'ang-dong, an area to the north containing several art museums, is provided by an art museum for just 1,000 won (1$).

Seoul Tower

by Jun_Oh

'Vision 360¡£',Brilliant and Great Panorama

Seoul Tower is one of the must see places to visit in Seoul. It is located on top of Mount Namsan, and it's 237m tall. If you buy a ticket at the tower you can also visit other places such as the underground aquarium. It's quite a view from the tower overlooking Seoul especially at night. When the weather is good you can see as far as Inch'on. Furthermore, you can have a pleasant time dining at the revolving restaurant with a spectacular view of the city. Taking the cable car to come down from the tower will be a wonderful experience. If you have extra time, visit Palgakjong and Ponsudae located close to the tower. Ponsudae used to be a place to warn people of invading enemies using smoke signals. A special event is held on January 1st every year and gives you an opportunity to see traditional Korean games such as kite flying

Coffee To Go

by newsphotogirl

There was a small store around the corner from my hotel that sold mini cans of coffee and lattes. I don't know why but I loooooved them. I guess I'm easy to please. I would walk by on the way to the subway and pick up a couple. One day the owner pointed toward what looked like a small oven. I couldn't figure out what he was trying to say so I just shrugged. Finally he walked over, opened it up, grabbed something inside and put it in my hand. Warm cans of coffee!!

Actually a lot of places in Korea sell these. I recently found a Korean grocery store close to home in the U.S. that sells them.

Korean Glutinous Rice Cake

by machomikemd

Very Sweet! the outer layer is a crispy rice starch that melts in your mouth and the inside filling is like the sweetened crushed red mongo seeds found in chinese mooncakes! it costs 300 won a piece and is available everywhere.

LG Twins Baseball

by kdoc13

One of my favorite things to do in Seoul is to go see my favorite Korean Baseball league team, the LG Twins! Plus, they have my favorite cheerleader Joo Hyun!

Baseball in Korea is different from Baseball in America and Japan. It seemed strange to me not to understand it. The game is actually the same, its the fans I didn't get. Cheering seemed to be different. When a play on a ball was being made, it was really quiet. It seemed like the noise and the cheering was not for their own team, but to mess up the other team. When a Twins player was at bat, it was also very quiet.

The game itself is fun to watch, but in Korea baseball is a team sport, where the fans are part of the team. Not only do you have to know how to do the team chants, you have to know the team songs! And the LG Twins have a bunch of them! There is the introduction song, the fight song (my favorite) and even an LG Twins love song? Don't bring anything but your knowledge of how to do the team cheers, and how to sing the team songs. Everyone purchases these red plastic inflatable tubes to make noise with. They are cheap and make great souvineers if you can deflate them without popping them.
