There are many ways you can navigate South Korea but here are the most common ways to travel around the city. 

  • By subway. This is the most common and efficient way to maximize your stay. TIP: download their subway app (Kakao Metro), it’s easier and you know how much is your fare as well as your travel time. However, you can also check their offline maps, though if you can’t read korean, it will be harder. You can always ask around but believe me, just download the app.  You will also need a T-money, this is like our BEEP card. BUY YOUR T-MONEY HERE. 
  • You can use your T-money to pay for transportation fares and also to pay in convenience stores. 
  • By bus. If you need to the bus, you will need to make sure you are taking the right bus. Make sure to check the routes first. Always tap your T-money before and after riding it. BUY YOUR T-MONEY HERE.
  • By taxi. Of course, expensive ones. Sometimes, you can’t help but take a taxi. Just make sure to choose the yellow ones and not the premium ones. they also accept T-money. Some drivers don’t speak English at all so make sure to know where you are going and prepare the address in korean so it’s easier for you and the driver. BUY YOUR T-MONEY HERE.
  • Remember: Subways and Buses runs from 5:30 am to 11:00 pm. There night buses though but it’s rare.
