From Gimpo International Airport
Gimpo International Airport is another international airport serving Seoul mainly from Japan and China. Most international flights from Tokyo Haneda and Shanghai Hongqiao arrive at Gimpo International Airport. Make sure which airport you will be arriving at and inform your Sogang Buddy of the airport in advance of your arrival. There are no direct express buses from Gimpo International Airport to our school area. Therefore, it would be best to take the subway or a taxi.
By Subway
Take the purple number 5 line headed for either Sangil-dong or Macheon and get off at Gong Deok Station. It takes about 40-50 minutes. At Gong Deok Station take Exit 2, turn to the right and you will be able to see a taxi station. Ask the taxi driver to drop you off at the rear gate (pronounced "hoo-moon") of Sogang University. It takes about 10-15 minutes and costs about KRW 3,000-4,000.
By Taxi
A more expensive but simple way is to take a taxi from the airport. There are two types of taxis- Regular and Deluxe. Regular taxis can be found at the number 1 platform in front of the ground floor of the domestic line office building. Black 'Deluxe Taxis' with yellow caps are usually more reliable than Regular taxis and are more expensive. Deluxe taxis can be found at the number 2 platform. Regular taxis cost about KRW 40,000-50,000 while Deluxe taxis cost a lot more. Make sure to carry enough cash (in Korean currency) with you because taxi fares may vary depending on the traffic conditions and not all taxis take credit cards.
