South Korea's premier air facility, Seoul Incheon International Airport (ICN) is around 52 km / 32 miles west from Seoul city centre. Incheon Airport offers travelers plenty of choice when it comes to transport, including ferry services, a modern rail network (KTX trains) and buses. The airport buses link central Seoul and nearby Gimpo Airport.. Buses at Seoul's Incheon Airport also travel further afield, linking the provinces of Chungcheong, Gangwon, Gyeonggi and Gyeongsang, as well as the neighbouring city of Incheon, stopping at locations such as the Hyundai Shopping Mall and the Munkak Stadium.
Traveling from the airport
- 1. If you want to go to the COEX Intercontinental Hotel, take the KAL Limousine bus at Bus Stop #4B. Ask the guide to help you find the bus to COEX Intercontinental Hotel. The service runs twice an hour. http://www.kallimousine.com/eng/schedule_en.asp
You will be able to find other lines of KAL limousine bus that takes you to other hotels too.
