“Convenient”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

I like that the metro reach almost every part of the city, very easy to use.
But I find it was a challenge for me to go up and down the stairs, cause not all the metro have elevator.

“One of the best, but can be extremely crowded.”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

The good:

Cheap, clean, and relatively quick depending on where you need to get to.

The bad:

At times, the metro can be brutally crowded, and a chore for those who have luggage. I don't particularly enjoy the pushing, etc, but the locals are polite enough. The AREX from the airport is a nice way to get into central Seoul, where there are cheap taxis waiting.

“The way to get around to avoid traffic gridlock”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

The Seoul subway is the safest and cleanest subway I've experienced on my travels. Taxis may be relatively inexpensive in Seoul (compared with other cities) but keep in mind that you can very easily get stuck in heavy traffic and lose the convenience factor. My little subway map was my closest companion (next to my girlfriend!) for the duration of our visit.

“Easy and Quick”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

English signs, clean, safe and quick. Don't be afraid to use it, but remember that taxis are quite cheap and can sometimes be as quick if you are changing lines more than once.
