Travel with AREX from Seoul Station to Incheon International Airport.

Who wants to know the fastest and most convenient way to get to Incheon International Airport from Seoul Station?

If you don't want to know, then you can go read other things already. Hah.

If yes, then stay with me okay.

The answer to the question is by AREX, also stands for Airport Railroad Express. The name itself actually explains all already. This is a non-stop subway ride from Seoul Station to Incheon International Airport vice versa. That means no wasting time.

It takes about 45 minutes and it's so convenient because you don't have to carry your luggage up and down compared to taking a taxi or other normal subway rides.

For us, this was ideal.

Price per adult: 14,800 krw = RM52

The first train begins at 6:26am in the morning and last one at 10:00pm. Eh please ah. They take their time very seriously so if you are a someone who is always late to everything, you may not want to be late for this train ride.

Actually even if you miss the timing, you can still change it to the next timing, I think. Unless you miss the last train ride la then no one can help you already.

Also right, if you are flying with Korean Air, Asiana Airlines and Jeju Airlines, you can check-in your luggage at Seoul Station itself so you don't need to carry your loads everywhere. You can settle all the check-in matters at Seoul Station itself. No need to rush some more.

For us, somehow we got the wrong timing info, so when we got to the airport, it was actually a bit too late for us to do the check-ins then the security stations etc. The lady behind our check-in counter was so good that she did not only give my sister, brother in law and Sha Lynn the express VIP passes, but also to Koay and myself.

This express VIP pass is usually for senior citizens, pregnant woman, celebrity and other important people.

When it was my turn at the immigration counter, the man looked at me and asked why I have this VIP pass. I was a bit lost because I did not know what to say. I just pointed at my sister (who had already cleared the immigration) and said, "Family!".

The immigration man rolled his eyes.


So rude please.

Anyways, we ran to the gate and there were still humans everywhere so okaylah, not so bad.

So yes, I highly recommend taking AREX because you just never know what will go wrong at the airport. Always be early at the airport. ALWAYS.

Bye now.
