How to get to the POSTECH
We may refer the following sites :
At Incheon International Airport
Nearly all of international flights
into Korea (except Gimhae Int Airport from Japan etc) arrive at the newly-opened
Incheon International Airport, about 30Km west of the capital city, Seoul. Upon
clearing immigration and customs, and claiming your baggages, drop by at a money
exchange (or at cash machin with credit card) to get some (75,000Won ~=~ 50 US$)
Korean currency .
Take a shuttle bus to the Gimpo Airport(Former
Gimpo International airport) in Seoul, which serves domestic flights. Buses are quite
frequent (at every five minites and drivers will understand your English) and
cost about 6,000 wons (4 -- 5 US dollars). After about 30 minutes of ride, you
will be at the Gimpo. And there are 14 flights to Pohang in every day. Please
allow at least two hours between the arrival at Inchon and the departure from
Korean Air and Asiana Airlines serve the domestic flight network
linking Korea's 14 major cities. Flight time to any of these destinations is
approximately one hour. Reservations and ticketing can be done by calling a
travel agent or the airline office.

(3) At Seoul :
If you take a
late flight into Korea and the connecting flight to Pohang leaves the next
morning, let us know and we will be able to make a reservation for you at the
Gimpo Airport Hotel.

(arrive at 12:31) and 4:30 PM (arrive at 21:28)
Oneway Price 20,000 Won-30,000 Won (About US$18-28)
(It will take about
1 or 1 1/2 hour from the Airport to Station and 4 1/2 hours from Seoul to
from Seoul to Pohang : If it (your arrival at Inchon)
is before 3 or 4 PM, you better use airplane to Pohang from there. If it is
after 4:30 or 5 PM, there is a nice comportable Express Bus Service to
Pohang from Seoul Central Express Terminal (where is easy to get from the Inchon
Int. Airport). If you arrive in the evening at Inchon, I would recommend this
service because there is no trane service to Pohang from Seoul in the evening.
