• How to get there? Subway Line 7, Sangdo Station, Exit#1. Look for a bridge near the exit. Go through the aperture of the bridge then look for a bus stop on the right hand corner. Take Bus No.13 and get off at the fourth stop after the bus swerves at some place. The house will be around the area. If you would like to save time, we suggest that you take a cab. Locating the house on your own can be confusing and you might get lost along the way. • Additional notes: It’s a private residence, so avoid disturbing the owner. Taking pictures is very much welcomed though.

22. travel tips

22.1 south korea

• Upon Arrival… Don’t forget to grab a free map at the Airport.! Taxi Stand: Passenger terminal arrival floor (1F), 4D ~ 8C (Toll Fees shall be furnished by the passenger) Limousine Buses: Deluxe Limousine Bus tickets to Seoul cost 7,000-15,000 won, and Standard Limousine Bus tickets cost 5,000-10,000 won.( Passenger terminal arriving floor(1F)’s entrances 4 or 9, or the outdoor bus ticket booths next to entrances 4, 6, 7, 8, 11, 13 & 9C. ) Airport Railroad : Subway Route: Incheon International Airport ↔ Incheon International Airport Cargo Terminal ↔ Unseo↔ Geomam ↔ Gyeyang ↔ Gimpo Airport ↔ Digital Media City ↔ Hongik Univ. ↔ Gongdeok ↔ Seoul Station Travel Time : Express Train 43mins, Commuter Train 53mins • Getting Around… There’s an abundance of cabs in the city, so hailing one is fairly effortless (except after 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights). Also, cabs are kitted out with GPS, so drivers can reach most destinations with just a phone number. Make good use of the subway system — it’s superefficient, clean, extensive and ridiculously cheap. Subway signs and maps are in both Hangul, the Korean alphabet, and English. Korea is basically a no-tip culture. Cab drivers don’t expect any reward for their services and it’s pretty much the same for staff in local restaurants as well as hotels. Even porters and bellboys don’t expect a tip. • Survival Skills… Seoul is a fairly safe city for travelers, and tourist information booths are scattered all over to help you navigate the capital both culturally and geographically. Telephone operators at a 24-hour tourist hotline (dial 02-1330 from a cell phone) also seem to be able to answer any question thrown at them. Lastly, Seoul is often touted as one of the most wired cities in the world, but getting your overseas BlackBerry to work here is no easy feat, as Korea is on an incompatible network. • Credit cards More and more motels, hotels, shops and restaurants in cities and tourist areas accept foreign credit cards, but there are still plenty of restaurants and small businesses that don’t. Be prepared to carry around plenty of cash, especially if you are touring around outside the main cities. It is better to check with your bank if there is an additional charge if you use it abroad. Do check their conversion rate. Most stores accept credit cards but ask if there is an additional charge if you use your card.


• Regular T-Money card vs. Seoul City Pass T-money Card: KRW2500 + preferred load and it can be used for local buses and subways in Seoul and the surrounding Gyeonggi-do area. By using T-money, you can get a 100-won discount off the basic cash fare. It provides you with even more of a discount when making transfers. Seoul City Pass Card: KRW3,000 (includes a guide booklet and discount coupons for selected businesses) + KRW15,000 (for 1 day pass) or KRW25,000 (2 day pass) or KRW50,000 (3 day pass). It has T-money card plus discount benefits on a single card. For both cards: *The balance NEVER expires *The price of both cards are not refundable, however the balance of the card is. You just need to deduct KRW500 to your balance. http://t-money.co.kr (English) http://seoulcitypass.com • About the MRT/Subway (you may download the latest maps here, or play around with the interactive map to familiarize yourself with it before leaving):http://www.smrt.co.kr/english_smrt/index.jsp • About KTX express train (including booking your tickets) http://info.korail.com/2007/eng/eng_index.jsp • Seoul City Bus Tour http://visitkorea.or.kr/enu/SI/SI_EN_3_4_10.jsp http://en.seoulcitybus.com/sub.php?P...um=2&subNum=11 • Bus routes around Seoul and major cities http://traffic.visitkorea.or.kr/lang/en/Bus/ *Find a guesthouse or hostel or hotel that is near a bus stop or a subway exit is good. • Smoking For smokers, smoking is strictly prohibited in public areas, look for the designated smoking areas. • Mobile phones Mobile telephones purchased outside South Korea will not normally work in the country. For those visiting South Korea phones can be rented at the airport on arrival. • Electric socket/plug in Korea 220V and Two round pins Cr. http://visitkorea.or.kr/
