As your plane starts it’s decent towards Incheon Airport, it’s really going to hit you that your Korean adventure is about to begin. The airport is well labelled in English so you should have no problem getting around. It was ranked the best airport in the world by Skytrax in 2012 after being 2nd and 3rd in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Did you know that the airport is built on an artificial island? Neither did I! After you get your luggage and clear customs, getting into Seoul (or any other city) is quite easy. I decided to hop on the Subway to get to Seoul. You could also take a bus or taxi, all of which is easy to find. I picked up a T Money card (you can grab one at basically any convenience store) and then tossed 5000 won on it. This is just a regular tap card to use public transit. The subway ride was 3000 won and about 45 minutes on the first line. Going over the Han river at sunset made for an amazing view! To get to Gangnam, where I’m staying before I move into my place, I had to transfer to the 2 line that took another 45 minutes. The Gangnam Station is more like an underground shopping mall than a subway station. Little shops and advertisements (some for plastic surgery) line the paths to the dozen or so exits. This is the busiest station in Korea, so don’t expect them to all be like this.
