The Seoul Metro is easy to use as everything is written in English. It's also easy to plan your day using this means of transportation. It's so cheap.

Subway is very efficient and reasonably priced. Best to by a subway rechargeable card. Can by at 7 eleven and other places. Just tap going and coming. Add money to card anytime. Can get close to most Seoul tourist locations.
