Airport Transportation in Seoul

A person now has his or her options when it comes to traveling from Downtown Seoul to Incheon International Airport. The Airport Railroad Express (AREX) subway may be the most efficient. A passenger can get from the metro area to the airport is 43 minutes. There is also the Seoul Metropolitan Subway. However, it is not as fast as AREX. Airport Limousine Buses can always get you to the airport, even if it takes a bit more time than the subway. Lastly, taxis are always convenient, even if they will end up costing you a pretty penny. At least you can negotiate your price to the airport beforehand.
