"Underground" South Korea Transportation Tip by matthewh1

South Korea Transportation: 123 reviews and 97 photos

The Soul underground is very good, easy to use and on time.
They have a bi lingual language over both the tannoy and on the signs.
The only downside to the Metro is that they dont have a circle line like on the London undeground system, which would link more of the stations together, but thats a minor point.
They have 8 lines which are all colour coded and easy to navigate around the system.
All the stations and trains are clean every single day.
Even the free local paper (like the Mtero paper in London) gets cleaned up during the day.
I love travelling by train and undergorund when I am abroad, even though wen travelling by underground you miss the sights and sounds of the city.
All Soul stations are wheel chair accessible and easy to navigate through, expect Soul Sation and City Hall as the majority of the lines through these 2 stations and its very easy to get lost.
I would recommend that you find out which station exit is the one that I closer to your destination otherwise you could walk out of the station a couple of miles away from where you wanted to be.
I would recommend people buy the underground travel card, as it can save you allot of money. the travel card machine is very easy to use as its in english. My only problem was that it took me a long time to find a machine in Soul station.

Type: Subway/Metro
