Taking an express ride to Seoul and going back to the airport has always been convenient to every traveller. While it offers that convenience. the price difference doesn't come with huge difference in speed from a regular commuter train, it only has 10 minutes advantage.

The train is comfortable and tickets are inexpensive. It is so convenient. Once we purchased our tickets, we could check our bags in, leaving us free to explore the Lotte Mart unfettered by heavy baggage. Before boarding the train, we did our immigration procedures at the empty immigration office at the AREX station. This allowed us to skip the massive... More

The only way to travel, the Seoul traffic is a nightmare, this new train is so easy, buy there Oyster card saves a fortune. We also Traveled on the Bullet train from Seoul to Busan 1st class free wi-fi and speeds up to 180 mph. Best way to see the country.

A little more expensive than the regular train but worth every penny. Comfortable, roomy, excellent service and no other stops on the way. Always been on schedule each time I have used it. I use this service each and every time I travel to and from Korea. Connects easily at Seoul station to the KTX. Predictable travel time compared to... More

Upon landing, I currently tried the Airport Express + private international taxi at a special package deal of 10000 Won per person (avoiding busy traffic on weekdays). Just simply go to the Airport Express ticket counter upon arrival for tickets. Black cab driver will meet you up at Seoul Station after you get off from Airport Express and take you... More

We had a long time in transit and decided to take the train into Seoul. Arex proved easy to use and easy to navigate having no knowledge of the Korean Language. The trains were clean, inexpensive and uncrowded. Great job Korea!

This train is fast, clean and convenient. And above all, it's very cheap. When I traveled other countries, sometimes it's very expensive to get to the main city from the airport. If you need more information on how to use a subway in Korea, visit my blog. I posted ways to buy tickets and how to use the subway in... More

So fast. I was living in Incheon and when you get back from a trip and are tired and just want to go home, this would take you. No huge lines or a ton of people crowding the subways.

I've taken the airport railroad instead of the airport buses for quite some time now because it's cheaper and faster if you want to get to the center of the city, or back to the airport. My only gripe is that it is a bit slow compared to, let's say Hong Kong's Airport Express or Shanghai's Maglev (although that one... More
