Traveling through ICN/Seoul. Is there enough time to see anything outside the airport?

Jump to last reply

I will be taking a connecting flight through ICN/Seoul in November after a 2 week SE Asia Holiday. I will arrive at ICN at 8:45am with a connecting flight that departs at 12:00noon for the US. It does not leave much/any time to leave the airport?

I have searched info on the airport and see where there appears to be a train and ferry at the airport. (Train info is sketchy) How long does it take to get into Seoul from the airport by train? Is there anything near the airport to see within the first stop or would anyone take a chance on just riding the train into the city and back just to see Seoul?
It is the one Asian city I have not seen. I think it would be best just to go to the lounge and rest, but had to ask the question to people who fly into this airport on a regular basis or know it well?
