San Francisco International Airport Information

The San Francisco International Airport (Highway 101 near the junction of Highway 380) is the primary commercial passenger airport serving San Francisco and the surrounding areas. The airport hosts most international and domestic airlines offering cheap flights from San Francisco. You can also use Orbitz.com to book an alternate flight out of Oakland International Airport (1 Oakland Drive, Oakland) or San Jose International Airport (2065 Airport Boulevard, San Jose).

Parking at San Francisco International Airport

San Francisco International's parking garages are a 10-minute walk or less from the gates, and there is free shuttle service from the long-term lots. Parking costs anywhere from $18 to $38 per day, depending on the option you choose. If you've used Orbitz.com to book your discount flights, you may have saved enough to justify spending the extra money to use the airport's valet parking service.

Ground Transportation Information

A taxi, limousine or shared-ride van to the airport will cost anywhere from $17 to $40. Factor in plenty of extra travel time for the 13-mile ride, as rush-hour traffic can be brutal. You can also use the public BART system or the SamTrans public bus service, both of which will cost you less than $10. Don't forget to use Orbitz.com before you leave to book a rental car in your destination city.

Restaurant Options at the Airport

The San Francisco airport has roughly 50 eateries where you can grab a coffee or have a light meal. Most of the restaurants and cafes are located within the terminals past the security checkpoint, but there are a few restaurants before you reach the security gates. Have a great flight to your final destination, and don't forget to use Orbitz.com the next time you're looking for cheap flights from San Francisco.

Airports in Seoul

The South Korean city of Seoul is served by three airports. The largest airport in the city is Incheon International Airport, Seoul's international hub, where those looking for cheap flights to Seoul will likely arrive. Incheon replaced Gimpo International as the major international hub for South Korea in 2001 and was listed as the best airport in the world by Airports Council International between 2005 and 2012. The airport is serviced by most major international airlines including British Airways, Delta Airlines, Japan Airlines, United Airlines and Air Canada. Secondary airports serving the city include Gimpo International, the city's domestic hub, and Seoul Airbase, where the Republic of Korea Air Force's 15th Composite Wing is stationed. Visitors from Japan, Taiwan and China often fly into Gimpo. Incheon International is about 32 miles west of the city center, located at 2172-1 Woonseo-Dong, Joong-Gu in Incheon City.

Transportation From Incheon International Airport

Transporting from Inchon to Seoul can be done quickly by using the Incheon International Airport Railroad airport express. The train leaves the airport every 30 minutes, arriving in Seoul in about 43 minutes at a cost of $3.30. Taxi service from the airport is also available, including international taxis that provide drivers who speak English, Japanese and Chinese. The taxi takes about 60 minutes to make the journey, with rates for standard taxi service beginning at $38.50 and international taxis charging a flat fare depending on your destination zone. You can also find private buses at the airport for larger groups. These take about 70 minutes to travel to the city center and cost about $9 per person.

Weather in Seoul

Seoul has four distinct seasons, with extreme differences between summer and winter temperatures. During summer months, temperatures can rise as high as 95 degrees Fahrenheit, while winter temperatures can drop as low as 7 degrees. During the summer season, Seoul can be hit by monsoons or typhoons. Dress as warmly as possible during winter months, as cold snaps tend to come in three-day intervals. During the summer, light clothing is the norm and umbrellas are held close to hand. Light jackets are appropriate for spring and fall.

Attractions in Seoul

Seoul can be an enjoyable city to visit, with many attractions that bring in a steady stream of tourists. There are over 100 museums in the city, the best of which is arguably the National Museum of Korea. The National Museum is located near Gyeongbokgung Palace and contains exhibits covering the folk history of the country. Festivals are also common in Seoul. The Hit Seoul Festival takes place four times a year, once during each season. The Seoul International Fireworks Festival is also a treat; it is worth booking cheap flights to Seoul each year through Orbitz.com just to view this incredible fireworks exhibition.
