I completed my travel. I can confirm that the shower rooms are completely self contained. You can leave your luggage at the front desk or carry it with you inside. The shower rooms look exactly like the pictures. The towels are small in size and you need to ask for multiple ones for an adult. It doesn't cost anything even for the "amenities". The only thing ...

It's possible to do an airside transit at Incheon airport which is fast and you can do that on seperate tickets. Vietjet doesn't have a transit desk there as far as I know but they offer web checkin for ICN departures so you should be able to get a boarding pass. Both airlines use the satellite terminal where it's possible to go through transit security ...

Heineken Bar at Incheon Airport The Incheon Airport webpage mentions Heineken Bar, one in the East and one in the West side of the duty free area, both next to gate 4F. I don't know if they have draught beer, but the name looks promising. Below is a screenshot from the linked site: The Jet Lagged Lizard at Incheon A couple hundred metres outside of the ...

Take the Airport Railroad to Seoul Station and from there a "Mugunghwa" train to Daejeon. The "all stop" train (1 hour journey) from the airport to Seoul costs 3950 KRW. There is an express train doing the journey in 30 minutes. It costs 8000 KRW. http://english.arex.or.kr/jsp/eng/information/use_information.jsp The train from Seoul top Daejeon (journey ...

Take the train. The A'REX will whisk you from Incheon Airport straight to Gimpo Airport in 35 minutes for just 3,750 won (~US$3.50), with trains every 10 minutes or so. Note that you'll need to take the regular "All Stop Train" (commuter) service; the express goes straight to Seoul Station. There are also bus services, which can be marginally faster if ...

Do I have enough time to do this? Impossible to predict with any certainty but it's likely you will miss your connection.

Neither the airline nor the airport will store your luggage for you, but there is a left-luggage service at Seoul/Incheon available in both terminals. You can book storage online at www.trazy.com Prices vary by size and storage period, but a 'medium' item will cost you US$11.20 for two days.

As a transit hotel, it allows those with international connections to sleep and refresh before an onward journey. If you will click through to the Arriving/Leaving link, it explains: This hotel is located in the customs area of the airport, and only international travelers can access the property. Guests are asked to communicate in advance the number of ...

I've never come across a country where ATM fees varied depending on the location of the ATM. Whilst it's certainly possible that there exist some "private" ATMs in various airports that charge more, but the normal bank-operated ATMs will charge exactly the same fees and give exactly the same exchange rate through-out the country. Specific to Seouls Incheon ...

From the Lonely Planet forums: Transit passengers who do not clear customs will not have access to any ATM in Incheon Airport. The only ATMs at Incheon airport are outside the sacred circle of customs. So if you need cash when you land at Incheon, you have to clear customs. There are two currency exchanges on the transit side that will ...

There is an immigration office behind G check-in counter on the 3rd floor of main terminal. More details can be found on leaflet. Btw it would be better to ask the information desk first.

The first AREX airport express from Seoul station leaves at 6:00 AM, arriving at 6:43. The service is reliable and ICN is a very efficient airport, so this should be plenty of time to check in for your flight and go through security. Your issue will be getting from Yeoksam to Seoul station, because this is too early for the subway. Google Maps suggests ...

I've been. The queues aren't very long. When I went I only had to wait for 1 person. It just depends on who is there before you really. I would suggest not to take too long because after a while you will get a knock on your door. Towels are very small - more like hand towels but I couldnt really complain seeing as the toilet and shower are free with free ...

Generally, if it's all a single booking you can expect baggage to be checked through so you won't see it at layover point (except in some cases of international-to-domestic transfers, but there are none in the itinerary you describe). Some ticket resellers will sometimes issue tickets spread over several bookings at the airline level even of you buy them at ...

According to Korean Air the minimum time for International to International connections at Incheon is 45 minutes. Apparently this works even at busy times and across airlines. There is Security to go past but not Customs for Transit passengers. Rather dated. Incheon current:

I used a Shinhan bank "global ATM" at the airport (it was along the path to the AREX station) two weeks ago, and there were no fees that were out of the ordinary. The exchange rate was exactly what Google said it would be (to enough significant digits that you wouldn't care about it). The only fees I got were the 3% foreign ATM fee and the $5 foreign ATM ...

Whenever I fly through Incheon Airport from the US to China and Hong Kong, I never need to go through customs/immigration. I usually stay within the airport and do a transfer, which does not require a visa. If you exit the airport, then you will need to go through customs/immigration. And Indonesian passport holders will need a visa to visit Korea (exit ...

That seems awfully expensive for 12 hours at a 3-star hotel even considering the convenience factor. Must be for one day, I think. You can't expect the booking sites to have contingencies for every variation of the hotels. You can contact them directly: The FAQ and rates pages explain exactly how it works. Note that there are 10% + 10% additional charges ...

There is no such thing as a minimum time you are required to stay in South Korea (or, as far as I've ever heard, any country anywhere). You also have a passport with which you can enter Korea without any sort of visa for a short visit, so you will have no problem there. Since you have only 10 hours between flights, you should consider the possibility that ...

I did this a few months ago. For Korean Airlines (free transit hotel): You need to wait until you arrive in Incheon to request the overnight hotel. Usually it is granted within a few minutes of getting to the assistant desk. You can't book it before arriving as it's on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you arrive they will most likely put you in a hotel ...
