“The best way to get from Seoul to Incheon airport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

The train is comfortable and tickets are inexpensive. It is so convenient. Once we purchased our tickets, we could check our bags in, leaving us free to explore the Lotte Mart unfettered by heavy baggage. Before boarding the train, we did our immigration procedures at the empty immigration office at the AREX station. This allowed us to skip the massive jam at immigration at Incheon Airport and go straight through via the priority lane. Highly recommended.

“From Inceon to Seoul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

The only way to travel, the Seoul traffic is a nightmare, this new train is so easy, buy there Oyster card saves a fortune.
We also Traveled on the Bullet train from Seoul to Busan 1st class free wi-fi and speeds up to 180 mph. Best way to see the country.

“East to Use and Straight There.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

A little more expensive than the regular train but worth every penny. Comfortable, roomy, excellent service and no other stops on the way. Always been on schedule each time I have used it. I use this service each and every time I travel to and from Korea. Connects easily at Seoul station to the KTX. Predictable travel time compared to bus, taxi etc.
Strange that it never seems busy. I think that none Korean speaking visitors may be afraid of using it in case they get lost or something goes wrong.
I urge everyone that needs to get into Seoul or back to the airport to use this service. The Korean people are extremely friendly and helpful. Most of the staff actually greet me in English and Korean when I go to buy my ticket.
43 minutes by this train and up to 2 hours by road if traffic is bad. There is only one choice in my opinion.

“If you are time deficient and want to get to the city QUICK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Upon landing, I currently tried the Airport Express + private international taxi at a special package deal of 10000 Won per person (avoiding busy traffic on weekdays). Just simply go to the Airport Express ticket counter upon arrival for tickets. Black cab driver will meet you up at Seoul Station after you get off from Airport Express and take you direct to your designated hotel. There were just a handful of passengers on board. Only take 43 minutes to go to Seoul Station. Super comfortable but underutilized by tourists.
