Do not take a Taxi from Incheon to Songtan unless you have lots of extra money. There are frequent city buses to all parts of Songtan that only cost about 12,000 won ($12) rather than 200,000 Won or so for a taxi (including the tolls). The buses go to the Songtan Intercity Bus Terminal, a kilometer or two from the big shopping area.
The Seoul subway was recently expanded south and now has stops near Songtan and even further south. This will greatly improve transportation to and from the area.
It costs about 1500 Won to get from downtown Seoul to Songtan station, and the 63 km route takes more than an hour.
