Flights to Seoul, South Korea

The city of Seoul is served by 2 international air facilities, Incheon and Gimpo Airports. Incheon is the largest air transport hub in South Korea and the main international gateway into the country but is located significantly further from the city centre than Gimpo Airport. Long-haul international flights touch down only at Incheon Airport (as of December 2016), whilst Gimpo Airport handles the city’s short-haul regional and domestic flights.

  • Incheon Airport is situated about 50 kilometres from Seoul’s city centre. A taxi ride from the airport to the city would take around 80-90 minutes at a fare of about KRW 65,000-80,000 (SGD 78-96).
  • Gimpo Airport is located only around 16 kilometres from Seoul. A taxi ride to the city should not cost much more than KRW 15,000-25,000 (SGD 18-30) and would take about half an hour.

Best Time to Visit Seoul

The beautiful city of Seoul is blessed with year-long charm, with natural and man-made attractions a-plenty throughout the 4 distinct seasons of the year. Horticulture-lovers might want to coincide their visit with the magical spring season that takes place from April to June, though, as that’s when the delicate cherry blossoms unique to North Asia make their coveted annual appearance. Autumn, happening from September to November, is also a favourite of tourists for the deliciously cool climate as well as the spectacular sight of autumn foliage covering the landscape in shades of gold, red and orange.

Tourists who aren’t fond of precipitation should avoid visiting Seoul during the rainy season that occurs at the end of summer, usually from late June to July.

Things to do in Seoul

There’s so much to do, see and eat in Seoul that it is hardly surprising that the city is an annual fixture on many an Asian traveller’s holiday schedule. Begin your trip with a full stomach and good spirits by visiting a local restaurant for some sinfully decadent Korean barbecued beef and tender fried chicken. Once you’re satisfied, the shopping districts of Myeongdong and Dongdaemun await your patronage. Follow that up with a visit to some of the city’s ancient temples and palaces, K-drama sites, then finish with an educational guided tour of the much talked-about Demilitarised Zone (DMZ).
