Missed my connection but they stepped up and took care of me

If you only fly on U.S. carriers that’s too bad. If I had a choice I would never fly again on a US carrier.

Cheap Flights from Guangzhou to Seoul

Guangzhou
Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport

When you need cheap flights from Guangzhou, you will likely depart from the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport. A few of the top companies flying from this airport include Air China, Air France, China United Airlines, Singapore Airlines, and Tiger Airways. The airport can handle 45 million passengers every year, and it has plans to increase that number to 75 million in the coming years. After you decide where you want to fly, look for cheap airfare through Orbitz.com. With low prices offered every day, you can always save money on your trip.

Parking at the Airport

If you need to drive to the airport, look for one of the two parking lots at the airport. One lot is a covered lot for people who need long-term parking, while the other is an open lot for short-term parking. The lots charge CNY8 to CNY12 per hour, though you can also get discounts for long-term parking.

How to Get There

Those who do not want to drive can get to the airport by using the Guangzhou Metro or by hiring a taxi. The Guangzhou Metro is the city's subway system, which has several stops around the airport. If you take a taxi, you might spend up to an hour in traffic to get to the airport.

Snacks and Meals

When you need to get something to eat, head to the departure hall. Between Gates 17 and 18 is Jinlong Food Street, which offers snacks, meals, and small dishes that you can eat as you walk. This same area is home to several small cafes and other restaurants. Now that you know more about the airport, visit Orbitz.com to book a seat on any of the cheap flights from Guangzhou.

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.
