Getting Around Seoul
Seoul has an extensive subway system that makes getting around Seoul very convenient. It is by far the most popular mode of transportation with more than 8 million trips daily. It is interconnected with the bus system so that riders can get anywhere they need within the city and as far out as the suburbs. In addition, taxis are also an affordable way to navigate the city especially late at night when the subway and bus lines are limited.
