How to Get Around in Seoul

How to Get Around in Seoul

Seoul has an excellent public transit network, which makes it easy to explore without a car. Traffic congestion is notoriously bad in the city—another great reason to avoid driving if possible—and a number of tour options are also available. Here are your best options for getting around Seoul.

 

Hop-On Hop-Off Bus

Explore Seoul at your leisure on a hop-on-hop-off-bus tour, one of the most convenient ways to visit many of the most popular attractions in the city, such as Changdeokgung Palace, Lotte World Tower, and Namsangol Hanok Village. Learn about different points of interests as you ride, with audio commentary in various languages. Multiple routes are available, and there is even a night-tour option.

 

Public Transit

Extensive and efficient, Seoul’s public transit system consists of a network of subways and buses. Pick up a transport card or pass, which is good for both and can also be used at some convenience stores. Just be aware that the system can get very crowded during the commuter rush hours.

 

Biking Tours

Cover more ground than you would on foot, and explore hidden corners that buses can’t access, on a biking tour of Seoul. Choose a guided tour to benefit from a knowledgeable guide, or rent a bike to explore on your own. Both regular bicycles and e-bikes are available.

 

Walking Tours

Walking tours are a great way to explore Seoul’s different neighborhoods in depth and at a slower pace. Explore historical landmarks, hidden gems off the beaten path, favorite local hangouts, authentic street food, or the best in shopping or culture on a walking tour.

 

Segway Tours

For a different experience, hop on a Segway to explore the city and visit top attractions such as Insadong, Tongin Market, and Gwanghwamun Square. Cover more ground with minimal effort while enjoying commentary from your guide on Korean history, culture, and customs.
