    Did you all know that the world’s largest travel platform Trip Advisor selected “taking the subway in Seoul” as one of the must-do activities for tourists?

    Seoul’s subway system ranks as one of the best public transit systems in the world, and there is no denying that with its excellent service from free WiFi to convenient transfers, cleanliness and low fares.
