• Subway
The most convenient way to get around Seoul is to take the subway. The nearest subway station to the Hoam Faculty House is the Nakseongdae subway station on Subway Line 2. (Please refer to the Seoul Metro/Subway Map). You can reach the Nakseongdae station by taking the village bus #02 at the bus stop in front of the Hoam Faculty House.
• Transportation Card
It will be a good idea to purchase a transportation card that can be used on subways and public buses, including the village bus #02, in Seoul and other major cities and locations such as Gyeonggi-do, Daejeon, Incheon, Daegu and Busan.

With a transportation card, you will save the hassle of purchasing single journey subway tickets for every ride. You will also have the benefit of discounts on rides during transfers from one subway line to another, one bus to another, or from subway to bus or vice versa (with a transfer time limit).
