Long layover in Jan - is there way to stay indoor?

Hello, we'll be traveling to Singapore / Thailand over winter holidays and we have long layover in Seoul (from 8 am to 6 pm).

We'd like to see at least some of the city, but we won't be prepared for such cold weather.

I wonder if there is any option to see at least something and stay indoor without getting outside for more then 2 min - like board on some underground stations, arrive to some malls / centers / museums?

Thanks,

Anna

Sure, the subway is extensive and there are lots of shopping centers and museums. The COEX mall is a big indoor complex.

The National Museum would be a good option except it is probably a ten minute walk from the nearest subway. A taxi might be best for that.

You could also take the city tour bus and just stay on for the whole loop, though you'd be rather hard pressed to get from the subway buy a ticket and get on the bus in just two minutes.

Lot of good things to see are outside, but you have lots of options.

there is a subway station right in front of the national museum but i would not advise to go there if you in seoul for that time period. there is too much to see and it can get very time consuming and tiring.
