Seoul subway lines Jul 09, 2011
I took the metro lines frequently when I travelled in Seoul. Subway is convenient and are busy with local travellers. Travelled with convenience within the subway lines. Easy to go to places of interest within minutes.

Tip for taking the Seoul Subway Lines May 11, 2010
On my second day in Seoul, I took the subway to get to a baseball match. Looking at the subway map, I can imagine one would think he/she would get lost or go the wrong way. But this subway is really easy to use if you check which station to board and where to get off.

Tickets for a line start at 1000 KRW (about 0,65 euro cents or 0,90 US dollar cents) for 10 km and goes up with 100 KRW for every 5 km. But be aware of an additional 500 KRW deposit. You pay this for the ride, but you get it back when you place it in the deposit vending machine. This machine is located next to the exit gates of each subway station.

My ride to the baseball stadium costed me 1200 KRW + the deposit of 500 KRW = 1700 KRW. But I got the 500 KRW back when I returned the ticket in the deposit machine. It's not a lot of money, but if you use the subway a lot, it could get costly.

So, make sure when you use the Seoul Subway, to take into account that your journey costs extra, then the price may appear at first.

you can use T money to pay the fare it easier cause you only have to tap the card before your enter then when you out the station, you don't have to worry paying the wrong fare even if you lost a bit during your journey :)
