Taxis are plentiful, clean, safe, and inexpensive in Korea and can be found at taxi stands in most busy city areas or easily hailed on the streets. There are standard, deluxe and international taxis (English, Japanese and Chinese services).

Tips and Information


• Standard and Deluxe taxi drivers speak little or no English, so before taking a taxi it’s always a good idea to have your hotel (or a Korean friend) write down your destination on a piece of paper in both Korean and English.


• Tipping is not accepted
