I will be in S Korea for 12 hour stopover in November.  Are there must see sites that I can make it too?  How far is the iarport from the town?  Any advice?  Kosher?

Thanks

Hour drive doesn't seem too bad. Where are some must see places? Any kosher restaurant?  Has anyone been there for jut 12 hours?

The Rov can prepare a kosher meal, but restaurant would be an overstatement

How long is the DMZ trip from airport and back?

Anything else worth making a longer stop for?

How much time do you have? IIRC our actual tour was around 6-7 hrs. It depends on which areas of the DMZ you see.

Right now my SO is ~2 hours. Want to know if i should look into extending that so i can go out and see something. DMZ would be interesting to visit.
Do you recall how much the tour was pp?

sorry I don't recall. Wasn't a fortune, I would guess under 200 for 2 ppl (could be off). What are your other options?

Nothing as of now. If i take the two hour layover, i end up in CNX around 10 PM. Figure nothing would be happening when i arrive, so i should try and stay longer in ICN.

So it seems like there's little reason to spend a few days here w/ kids?
It seems like they have some pretty national parks and beaches, but I'm not seeing anything earth-shattering, and I can't imagine the prices are as low as Bali or Thailand.

Considering a full day stopover in ICN, arriving 5:40 AM and departing 7:15 PM. Anything that can I do in addition to the DMZ tour?
 

BTW, this thread has to be added to the destination master thread.

Did you check the times of the tours? The DMZ tour will eat up most of that time, then you have to add in travel to and from the airport, etc. Not much extra time to play with IMHO. If you do have extra time, I recall reading something about a tower observatory. I forgot the name but it was pretty high up in the traveladvisor activity list.

Also, does anyone know which KSML KE serves ex-ICN?
