Busy, always busy, but a great way to get around. Cheap, reliable, immaculately clean. The signage was easy to understand & follow. Well used by all, the U.K. could benefit from lessons!! If it's reliable & cheap people will use it.

Tip: if you're only visiting for a couple of days, you probably don't need a T-Money card. Just get single trip tickets (fare + 500krw deposit). When you exit through the turnstiles, find the "deposit refund machine", stick in your ticket, and out pops a 500krw coin for your deposit. It's like a slot machine that always pays out. :)... More

Gets a little of getting used to but as long as you get hold of an English map of the Metro then you are set. Keep in mind of the Senior Citizen seats - they are actually being used and reserved for the elderly!

It is easier than I thought on my first visit Seoul. Metro and Trains. Except some stations does not have elevators, if you have to carry a big luggage, make sure you be able to manage your self.

Excellent system! Got us everywhere around Seoul. Comfortable rides, and screens helped us identify which stop it is, so that we can alight.

Good Seoul Metro network, especially now with the help of the mobile phone APP - Subway, which tell you all the details for taking which subway lines to your destination. Just that, you have to walk a distance when switching lines. A bit of challenging if you carry big luggage with small kids to manage, also some exist only have... More

Trying Seoul Metro was an Excellent experience for public transportation. It was easy, clean, economical, and reaching almost everywhere in Seoul. Stations are provided with self-service ticket machines that were so efficient.
