      (2) 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 Seoul 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 Gimpo.
          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.
