Seoul Korea questions

Jump to last reply

It's been about 10 years since I last visited Seoul. A couple of quick questions.

Incheon airport to Seoul (Shilla) hotel - I assume Airport Limousine bus is still the way to go, but I can't find a good website with route, travel time, and cost info. I can arrive either late afternoon, or 4am (non-stop from JFK). Still undecided. If I can checkin my hotel at 6am I'm tempted to go the midnight departure from JFK.

Is Airport Limo bus still the best way, and does anybody know the current cost. IIRC the travel time was 90+ min door to door - maybe worse at pm rush hour.

Cash/ATM. Again, 10yrs ago it was hard to find an ATM that accepted my US (visa logo) debit card - I recall needing to find a Citibank or changing cash. Any tips on getting cash?

I won't need much krw since most of my expenses will be paid for at a business conference or at the hotel. Subway, shopping, and some touring if I can swing it. I'm not against just changing $US for the small amount I'll be spending with cash.

As I figure out how much free time I can get (if any), I'll come back with some more questions. This website http://english.visitkorea.or.kr/enu/index.kto seems to be a good source of info. Happy to hear any other tips.

Thanks,
