How to get to Myeongdong from Incheon AirportSunday, October 27, 2013
There are several ways to get to Myeongdong from Incheon Airport.
1) Airport Railroad Express (AREX) subway
2) Seoul Metropolitan Subway
3) Airport limousine buses
The most economical and convenient way would be to take the airport limousine bus like I did from Incheon Airport. Why do I say that it is more convenient taking the airport limousine bus? This is because you won't have to lug your luggage up escalators and long walkways for transfers as you will if you were to take a train.
The next question that you have in mind would probably be, "Where to get airport limousine bus tickets?
1) Exit from Gate 11.
2) You will see the Bus Ticket booth on your left.
As I did research on which bus to take beforehand, I just went ahead and told the lady at the counter, "3 tickets for bus 6015 to Myeongdong".
We got our one-way airport limousine bus ticket for 10,000 won (approx SGD$11.40) per person.
You probably spotted the area circled above on the bus ticket. This is to let you know where you can board your bus. For bus 6015, you can board it at 5B and 12A.
Initially, we were waiting at 12A for the first bus but we couldn't board it as it was already full when it stopped at 12A. It turned out that a lot of people were queuing up at 5B instead. The bus conductor at 12A told us to go to 5B instead so that we will have better chances of getting up the next bus and true enough, we did!
Like the airport limousine bus in Taiwan, the airport limousine bus in Korea have undercarriage luggage compartment along the side of the bus. The bus conductor will help you to place your luggage into the undercarriage luggage compartment and tag your luggage with the baggage tag before passing you a copy of it for identification purposes.
If you have hand carry luggage, you don't have to worry about whether a not to bring them up the airport limousine bus because there's a special area dedicated to hand carry luggages.
Ending off this entry with a picture of the airport limousine bus interior!
