South Korea has a number of international airports, which are frequently used as arrival points from Australia. The largest and busiest airport in South Korea is Incheon International Airport (ICN) in its capital, Seoul. Incheon replaced Gimpo International Airport (GMP) as Seoul’s major airport, however Gimpo still ranks as the third busiest in South Korea. The second busiest airport in South Korea is Jeju International Airport (CJU), which is located on Jeju Island south of the mainland. Airport buses or ‘limousine buses’ are a popular mode of transportation from airports to city centres in South Korea. Incheon Airport also has a rail service with express trains to downtown Seoul in about 40 minutes or an all-stations service that takes around 50 minutes. Taxis are also available or speak to your Student Flights consultant about organising a private transfer.
South Korea Flights
There are multiple flight paths from Australia to South Korea, all of which will require a stopover. Speak to your Student Flights consultant for a full list of transfer destinations to decide which option best suits your travel style. To get the bulk of the trip out of the way first, connect through China (10.5 hours), which only leaves a short 1.5-hour flight to Gimpo Airport in Seoul. Other popular destinations for a stopover include Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. Departure from Perth will see you land in Singapore after 5.5 hours with a 6.5-hour flight left to Incheon Airport in Seoul. Airlines provide a range of food, drinks and entertainment while onboard long-haul international flights. Shorter flights may offer a light snack or refreshment.

About South Korea
South Korea is just a short ferry ride to Japan with China across the sea to the west too. South Korea developed rapidly after the 1960s and has continued to remain a homogeneous country with locals hailing from China, Mongolia, Bangladesh and other parts of Southeast Asia, but all identifying themselves as ethnically Korean and speaking the Korean language. A holiday in South Korea would not be complete without a tour of Seoul in all its glory, taking in Hangang Park, the Seoul Arts Centre and Bongeunsa Temple, to name a few. Time spent in Gwangju will uncover the Mudung Cinema, Jeil Kukang and Namhansansung Provicinal Park. Don’t miss Hallasan National Park if you’re in Jeju or the nearby Bijarmin Forest, and a trip to Paju is not complete without a visit to Panmunjom and the Third Tunnel – check them out.
