Pre cruise photo recap: 24 hours in Seoul, South Korea

Welcome to Seoul, South Korea

Upon arrival at the Incheon International Airport, I left my luggage at a locker and took the Arex Airport Express into the city, which took about 43 minutes and cost approximately $11 USD.

Once I arrived at Seoul Station, I headed for the Metro and found my hotel. Choosing a property close to the sights that I wanted to see, I hit the pavement in search of the soul of the capital of South Korea.

The soul of the city

Historical sites, (some World Heritage listed), timeless temples, cultural villages, tree-covered mountains, friendly people.

Korea, facing the future
