About Seoul

Seoul is the capital of Korea with over 600 years of history. It is the heart of Korea’s culture and education as well as politics and economics. Seoul is home to many old historic sites like Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung Palaces, and places of traditional culture like Bukchon Hanok Village, Insa-dong, and Namdaemun Market. The shopping and entertainment districts of Myeongdong and Apgujeong, and Asia’s largest underground shopping center COEX Mall also draw a large number of tourists every year. The Hangang River, which runs through the center of the city, is also a distinctive landscape of Seoul that offers a myriad of resting areas for citizens.

Transportation from Incheon International Airport

The NOMS 2024 is held at The-K Hotel, which is located in Seoul. You can travel from Incheon International Airport to The-K Hotel by subway, bus, or taxi, but we recommend you to use the airport bus. Please also refer to the hotel's information.


  • By Subway
    • You can come to Seoul downtown from Incheon International Airport using Airport Railroad Express (A'REX). To get to The-K Hotel, you need to transfer to Line 9 (you can take the express) at Gimpo Int'l Airport Station, transfer to Shinbundang Line at Sinnonhyeon Station, and get off at Yangjae Citizen's Forest Station. You can get to the hotel by coming out of exit 5 and walking for 5 minutes.
  • By Bus
    • You can use the 6009 Limousine Bus to get downtown. After getting off at Yangjae Station stop, you can go to the hotel by crossing the street, taking the Green Buses Seocho 08, 20, and getting off at the The-K Hotel Back Gate stop.
  • By Taxi
    • Incheon International Airport is very far from the city of Seoul. It takes one hour to get to The-K Hotel from the airport and costs about 60,000 Korean Won by taxi. So we recommend you use the A'Rex or 6009 limousine bus to enter downtown Seoul, then grab a taxi and tell the driver to go to The-K Hotel (더케이호텔서울) or Yangjae Citizens' Forest Station (양재시민의숲역).

About Korea (Official Site of Korea Tourism)

Visitors will discover its rich natural beauty combined with a unique cultural and historical heritage. After a rapid modernization in recent decades, Koreans still maintain their traditional values such as hospitality and the time- honored Confucian respect for the elderly.

Traveling in Korea is enjoyable all year round thanks to its distinct four seasons and the beautiful changes of nature. In spring (March to May), mountains and fields are in bloom with cherry blossoms, forsythias, azaleas, magnolias and lilacs. In summer (June to early September), luxuriant forests, bright green fields and the cobalt blue sea draw people outdoors. In autumn (September to November), cool temperatures and a clear sky make it the most pleasant time of the year in Korea. The mountains all over the country are covered in red and yellow blazing autumn foliage. In winter (December to February), mountain slopes become the place for skiing and snow festivals. Winter in Korea is another delightful season of great amusement.
