12 Hour Layover in Seoul

I have a 12 hour at the Seoul airport on Friday. We arrive in the morning, and have to be back at the airport in the late afternoon.

Is it worth going into town for lunch?

Any other suggestions for such a short time?

The trip into Seoul takes about 1 hour by either bus or taxi. The taxi is about $80 US. The buses go to hotels and are about $15 US. If you have some place specific you want to go, it is certainly doable. Another option would be to go into the town on Incheon.

It take about an hour to get to Seoul from Incheon, after you arrive you mau want to get a bite to eat at Insadong (historic area) and see one of palaces nearbye, good luck!
