Everyone's minding their own biz in the subway/trains in Seoul. But if u need help, just ask anyone and they are all very polite and helpful. Trains are very quick and efficient but look out for timing of last train (b4 midnight).

Not very frequent and no escalators so hard to drag your luggage. People are very helpful if you get lost.

Avoid rush hour and please check the station exits first. Walk might faster than transfer with metro. Subway application can help you a lot

Top choice to get around Seoul. Armed with T-Money Card (Seoul city's public transport swipe card) and you are ready to go. The same T-Money Card can be used on buses, airport express buses and taxis. The Seoul Metro is also conveniently located at almost all attractions that I went to. Only exception is the Blue House (Cheong Wa Dae),... More

Given the congested traffic situation in Seoul, the metro provides a convenient and affordable mode of transportation. Get a T money card and load money at the station or at convenience store. It can get very crowded during rush hour. Be careful with your belongings. Comparing to other big cities such as London or Tokyo, Seoul's metro is affordable.

Taking metro is the best way to get the places you want to go in Seoul if you are not familiar with the whole area. Those famous spots are always next the metro stations. If you still do not know which exit you should take, there is someone in an information booth to ask.

Staying in Hongdae

Neighborhood Profile
Carefree enthusiasm is everywhere in this energetic neighborhood centered on Hongik University, Korea’s top art school. From its assortment of murals to the occasional amateur street performances, creativity and expression make up the wild and beating heart of vibrant Hongdae. At the Free and Hope Market (weekends at the Hongdae Children’s Playground) you'll find one of Seoul’s most popular handmade and creative markets drawing consistent crowds. At Hongdae, there’s never a shortage of things to do and see; food and drink options are nearly endless as are shops and noraebang (karaoke) rooms. Hongdae is also one of Seoul’s top party and club scenes catering to a younger demographic; if a packed club isn’t your scene, you'll also find a range of music venues and bars offering live music in all genres. Although Hongdae has lost much of its unique appeal and undergone rapid commercialization in recent years, be sure to explore Hongdae’s edges in areas such as Sangsu-dong and Yeonnam-dong where Hongdae’s fiercely independent streak still runs freely.
