If you've never been to Korea before you may not know that the Airport in Incheon is very far from Seoul. So, when looking for a way into the city the AREX is your best, and cheapest option. The trip is under 30 minutes and the trains are nice and comfortable. The AREX pulls directly into Seoul Station with access... More

The entrance to the train station was easy to locate as you can spot it after exiting the arrival hall. Get your T-money from the convenience store located near the entrance and top up your card at the machines right before the gantry. The train is wide and comfortable. The only thing that is lacking is areas to put your... More

There are two types of the Arex train into Seoul. One is the "all stop" train and the other is the "express" train. The all stop train stops at about 9 stops along the way into Seoul and it takes 50mins from Incheon airport to Seoul Station and cost about a little under 5000won for a one way trip. REMEMBER...

Ferries passengers to the airport. Heated seats. Can be crowded during peak. Personal space is not required. But it will get you there

We took the Arex train upon arriving Incheon airport to the city of Seoul. It is very convenient but a bit crowded since it is the public transport with lots of stops along the way. If you are looking for a budget train ride this is the one. Otherwise you may take the KTX train which is a non-stop train... More

The fastest and safest and most punctual way to go to Seoul from Incheon Airport. You can either buy express one or normal one. Very clean too.

Using the AREX is very convenient. It is very fast and very cheap at KRW8,000 as compared to the bus or taxi. The seats are very comfortable and there is even free wifi. The only downside I see here is the travel from Seoul station to your hotel when taking the subway especially if you have big luggages. Some stations... More
