Incheon International Airport Transit Passengers
Suggested Tours for Incheon International Airport Transit Passengers

Choose a tour from our Suggested Tourist Spots and learn more about Incheon!
Opened on March 29, 2001, the Incheon International Airport is a state-of-the-art international airport built on land reclaimed from an area between Yeongjongdo Island and Yongyudo Island. Because it is built on an island, there are numerous beautiful beaches and islands to visit in its vicinity. In particular, Silmido Island, the filming location for the movie “Silmido” which drew over 11 million moviegoers in 89 days after its release on December 24, 2003, is nearby.
1. For transit passengers with 4 to 5 hours to spare before a connecting flight
If you have 4 to 5 hours to spare at Incheon International Airport, subtract 2 hours for transit check-in, and you have 2 to 3 hours for sightseeing. In that case, take a city bus from the airport for a ride of 10 to 15 minutes and you will arrive at one of the beaches nearby the airport. There is no heavy traffic on the road, so do not worry about missing your flight.
Eurwangri Beach
Famous for its sunsets, Eurwangri Beach is shallow and its waters warm. But the water is not as clear as the west coast has extensive wetlands. After a brief look at the beach, rent a four-wheel motorcycle for a run on the beach.
 
2. Three best sightseeing courses for transit passengers with 9 to 10 hours to spare before a connecting flight
For each course, allow 2 to 3 hours of spare time for waiting (bus or ferry), rest, and meals.
