Incheon port to Seoul

We are thinking about a cruise and one issue is the travel time from port to city. For example, can anyone tell us the best way to travel back and forth from the cruise port Incheon to center of Seoul. Can you do this in one day and still have time to sight see? Thanks

Best is subjective. Cheapest is subway, which take 80 mins. Taxi a bit quicker and will get you to wherever you choose to go- as opposed to Seoul station.

Yes, it can be done!

thanks. is traffic crazy in the morning and then coming back at the end of the day (i.e. commuters) or wouldn't that effect travel time too much.

not hugely different, but allow 90 mins plus if back between 5 and 6:30

You didn't specify which kind of cruise you're referring to - if you're inbound for a day trip to Seoul, and further assuming your cruise departs from/arrives in Coastal Ferry Terminal which is next to International Passenger Terminal 1 (but far away from International Passenger Terminal 2), you can minimize uncertainty by combining taxi and metro.

If it's Wolmi-Do Cruise and this is your day-trip from Seoul, however, then your ingress/egress route will have to be different. Either way, I can assure you, taking a taxi all the way between Incheon Port and central Seoul will cost some serious fortune.

In case of the former, Dong-Incheon station is a recommended point of transfer. There is a bus between Dong-Incheon and the Coastal Ferry ('Yeon-An') terminal, but taxi would be time-saving and less confusing. On Metro Line 1, there are 'Rapid' trains in every 15~20 minutes or so whose respective termini are, conveniently, Dong-Incheon Station and Yongsan Station. The Rapid cuts it in 44 minutes, regular trains in 1 hour but they proceed further into central Seoul.

For Wolmi-Do boats, it's Incheon Station where you transfer to/from buses for Wolmi-Do. (5 min. ride) Aforementioned Rapid trains cease one stop short of Incheon Station, and you'll need to take regular trains. You might see a monorail for Wolmi-Do at Incheon Stn., but it's not operational although at near-completion.

thanks for the help. we are arriving via a cruise ship for a one day visit to Seoul and hope to make the most of it. don't know the details of which port we arrive in, but we hope to have enough time to get into the city and do some sightseeing in one day. that's why we were wondering about the transportation back and forth to the city.
