We really enjoyed the cleanliness and efficiency of the Seoul Metro, which puts systems in western cities to shame. Although individual tickets get you where you need to go, we *highly* recommend purchasing a T-Money card if you're in town for more than 2 days....More

Easy to use the metro, but many different lines and you need to make sure you are going in the right direction, so check a map and if you are lucky you can find an English speaker to help

We used the Seoul subway on many occasions during our 3 day visit and found it to be an excellent system and cheap too. Some of the lines reach areas that are 100 kms from the capital.

I found this system very easy to use and station staff spoke English and were always eager to help. I bough a card for the system at a 711. The signed are in English with maps that were easy to follow.

We used the metro to get around one day. it looks easier than it is. We asked lots of questions and finally got to were we wanted to be. The maps are easier than the trains themselves.

Some trains are good and quieter but others are noisy. Stations are not great places ... even though they are tidy but very drab looking. Signs, especially in English, need much improvement.... have to strain to look which station we are in, when in the...More
