Day 5 (16 May 2016)

Flew back to my hometown after a short trip in Seoul.



Airport bus to Incheon International Airport 



If you would like to take subway to go around in Seoul, it is good to equip yourself with subway map of Seoul, preferably with the ones with Korean language as this would turn out to be extreme useful when you need to ask the locals about the subway info on the way to your destiny.
