How to use Korea's public transportation for foreigners (feat. BTS) | Korea Travel Tips

Published by Darron Toy on



hi my name is Danny Kim and I've been living in Seoul for about 20 years and today I'm gonna show you some tips about public transportation within South Korea South Korea has one of the best public transportation systems in the world and within Seoul you can literally get anywhere just by bus or subway now there are two main ways you can ride the subway in Seoul first is a single ride card and the other is a rechargeable t-money card so we are here in the subway station and here you can buy single ride cards or recharge the rechargeable cars at any one of these machines now these machines are located in every subway station in Seoul and today I'm going to use it to buy a single ride ticket to holding University which is one of Korea's hottest towards locations so you can pick your language here and I'm gonna take an English today and then pick single journey ticket select homing University as my destination one journal ticket and then insert my pass so I got my single ride card and we are off to home eight University so I just took the subway and we have arrived at home University station and if you're using a single ride car like I just did then you can get your deposit refunded at the deposit refund machine also located in every subway station so you just put the card in here and here's my deposit I recommend to stay in Korea for a while and you're planning to use a lot of public transportation I will suggest you use the rechargeable t-money cards instead of a single ride card as it can be more convenient and can save you a lot of money for example say you're transferring from a subway to a bus and vice versa if you make the transfer within 30 minutes you can get on your transfer ride for free just make sure you tag your card on the bus when you're getting off or you won't be able to get those benefits and one more thing you can make your own personalized t-money cards using these whole cart kiosk located at major subway stations inside Seoul so I'm gonna try to make a mobile card right now using this station first you have to scan the QR code right beside here so let me just use my phone and once you scan this QR code it takes you to the OPA card website and here you can choose your picture of your choice to create your card with so right now I'm going to choose VPS a picture of BTS line up my picture and you can also enter a special message in the cards and it gives you a QR code now what do you do with the QR code you go to the kiosk and you can check your language again and you take my photo transportation cards and here you just put the QR code to the Machine and here's my picture it's right away right so click OK and you have a variety of our options you have a variety of options to make a payment I'm gonna select credit card and then pay 6000 won so there you go this is the BCS card that I just printed so you can pick any picture you want it can be other artists it can be scenery or in pictures of yourself and you can bring home a very special souvenir for yourself from the soul so look at the quality of these cards that I just printed off of that kiosk they are actually really good quality considering the prices only 6,000 won which is about six US dollars so it's a very nice way to get around more conveniently and also save a little bit of money as well as have your own unique souvenir so that's it for today I showed you around some tips about public transportation in Korea I hope this video has helped you a lot and signing off my name is Danny Kim and enjoy your stay in Korea

Mellory Lopes · July 26, 2019 at 1:57 pm

I have a question. Is it possible for me to use my debitcard in Korea? Most people my age in my country dont own credit cards. Or should I just bring cash only?

Kelsey · July 26, 2019 at 1:57 pm

3:29 couldn't they install the camera in a normal place so you don't look like you're taking a dump? 😂
