SEOUL Random 01: Direction to Hyundai Residence

To get to Seoul

it’s either via AREX airport train or bus

there are buses to most visitor-concentrated areas

bus fare costs 10,000 won per trip

 

or you may directly grab a T-money card

at 7-11 upon arrival

it costs 2,5000 won

and directly top up like 20,000 won

 

so that you may use it directly on the airport bus

the buses are right outside

at the same ground level

 

the bus will make a few stops along the way

the destination will be pre-announced

and you have to press the bell to

notify the driver

 

before departure

if you have luggage at the compartment

they actually distribute a luggage label to you

Airport bus from Incheon

 

and once you are alighting

just hand it to the driver and

he would help you out with the luggage

 

a more specific guide below is about

how to get to this Hyundai Residence

which  I was staying

 

all I can say is..

it’s highly recommended

details in another post

 

from the airport

take bus 6015

and alight at (Best Western) Kukdo Hostel

a.k.a. Euljiro 4-ga station

 

from there,

Hyundai Residence is within walking distance

Route 01 (Recommended)

1. From Kukdo Hotel, walk straight ahead

2. You will see Euljiro 4-ga station exit 10, 9

3. Cross the road

4. You will see Euljiro 4-ga station exit 8, 7

5. Walk straight along some home-decors shops

6. You will come across an entrance to a market

7. Cross through Chungbu market (it’s clean!!)

8. At the cross-road, walk straight

9. Will see Hyundai Residence after the 1st 7-E

Incheon airport - bus 6015 - Kukdo Hotel - Hyundai Residence 02

 

Route 02

but there are more road-crossing and turns

1. From Kukdo Hotel, walk straight ahead

2. You will see Euljiro 4-ga station exit 10, 9

3. Cross the road

4. You will see Euljiro 4-ga station exit 8

5. Turn right and along some furniture shops

6. At the junction, where Biz Hotel is

7. Cross the road towards Biz Hotel

8. Turn left and walk along some shops

9. At the T-junction, where Chungbu Market is

10. Turn right into the small lane

11. Will see Hyundai Residence after the 1st 7-E

Incheon airport - bus 6015 - Kukdo Hotel - Hyundai Residence

* The #8 box on the left-bottom corner is

Chungmuro Station for line 3 & 4

 

may catch a shuttle bus 02 in front of Popeye’s

i.e. exit 2 of Chungmuro Station to

Namsan Park / N Seoul Tower

 

this is how the junction of Biz Hotel looks like

in case you prefer Route #2

Biz Hotel, Seoul

 

but again

Chungbu / Jungbu market

is really a walkable and much easier route

Chungbu / Jungbu Market

 

the final junction right before

reaching Hyundai Residence

a local restaurant

not sure what does it serve as

there is no menu or whatsoever

but a local favourite

many huge cars were parked nearby

some illegally just to eat here

the junction to Hyundai Residence

 

ideally I should end this post

with a snap of Hyundai Residence

captioned, here you are

but I doubt I even have one

 

no worries

anyway, in short

once you see

Chungbu Market / Jungbu market

and this Granny’s restaurant right oppsite

you are just steps away from Hyundai Residence
